The Washington Nationals and Atlanta Braves face off on Sunday in an MLB showdown at Truist Park. The Braves have won the first two games of this series. 

The Braves sit with a 51-35 record overall and they have won five of their last six games. In the first game of this series, the Braves offense scored 12 runs, and it’s going to be important that the offense finds success again in this game. The Braves overall are averaging 4.79 runs per game which is 4th best in the league. Austin Riley has hit 22 home runs and driven in 53 RBIs so far this season. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Nationals who sit with a 30-57 record overall and they have lost three games in a row. Over the last three games, the Nationals' offense has scored only eight runs total and that has led to the losses. The Nationals pitching has been the biggest issue overall this season giving up 5.51 runs per game which is 30th in the league.

On the mound for the Nationals is Paolo Espino who sits with an 0-2 record and an ERA of 2.33. In his last start against the Philadelphia Phillies, he went 3.2 innings giving up six hits and four runs. 

On the mound for the Braves is Ian Anderson who sits with a 7-5 record and an ERA of 5.09. In his last start, he went five innings giving up eight hits and one run. 

The Braves are 4-0 in their last four home games against a right handed starter. The Nationals are 0-7 in Espino’s last seven starts on four days rest. The under is 4-0 in the Braves last four games on Sunday. 

The Braves had strong pitching on Saturday and it will continue in this game. Anderson has a higher ERA but in his last start he gave up only one run. Look for the Nationals bats to be ice cold against Andreson and that is going to be the difference as the Braves are going to get the job done here. Back Atlanta on the run line.
