The Braves are all set to take on the Washington Nationals this week in a three-game series that begins tonight at 7:05 ET in Atlanta.
Atlanta ace Tim Hudson (7-3, 2.54 ERA) will start tonight’s series opener for the Braves, and will be opposed by Nationals’ rookie phenom Stephen Strasburg (2-1, 1.78 ERA) in what should be a GREAT pitching matchup.
Nine-game winner Derek Lowe (9-5, 4.42 ERA) will start for the Braves in the second game of the series on Tuesday night, while the Nationals have not yet announced a starter for that game.
And Jair Jurrjens is tentatively scheduled to make his return to the Braves’ starting rotation in Wednesday night’s series finale, while J.D. Martin (0-3, 3.03 ERA) will start the finale for the Nats.
Those are some great pitching matchups, and this should make for a great series, so be sure to come on out to the Ted this week and watch the Braves and Nationals play!
