Atlanta comes into this game trailing the Mets by 1.5 games for first place in the NL East. Washington has the worst record in all of baseball and has lost five of their last seven games. Atlanta cannot afford to lose any of these games if they want to catch the Mets. The Braves and Mets do play a series this weekend, but Atlanta better not be looking ahead. The Braves are starting Bryce Elder, who has allowed two runs over his last 18.2 innings of work. For the Nationals, Cory Abbott has allowed six runs over his last seven innings pitched. I like the Braves to win this game by at least two runs.
