As the season gets closer to the playoffs, we travel to Atlanta as the Braves host the Washington Nationals Sunday September 16, 2012 at Turner Field. First pitch between these two NL East leaders is scheduled for 8:05 PM ET with the Nationals taking the contest from the Braves in the national spotlight.
Nationals Send Gonzalez to Mound to Avoid Sweep
Gio Gonzalez looks to become a 20-game winner Sunday night when the Nationals take on the Braves in an NL East matchup. The Nationals lead in the East has dropped to 6.5 games after losing the first two of the series to Atlanta. Washington can increase its lead to 7.5 games with a win and keep the Braves focused on the NL Wild Card. Gonzalez, should he win his 20th of the season tonight, will become the first player in Nationals history to win 20 games in a season.
Braves Ready to Break Out the Brooms With Minor on the Hill
Mike Minor takes the mound for Atlanta tonight as the Braves have their sights set on sweeping the Nationals and pulling to within 5.5 games of first place in the NL East behind Washington. The Braves have won two straight and are 7-3 in their previous 10 games. They also hold a seven game lead as the top team in the NL Wild Card chase over the second-place Dodgers and Cardinals.
