The Washington Nationals and Atlanta Braves begin a three-game series Tuesday night.

The Nationals have scored 13 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in six of their last nine games. The Nationals have won five of their last six games when scoring more than three runs. Yunel Escobar leads Washington with 85 hits and 27 RBI while Bryce Harper and Ian Desmond have combined for 81 RBI. The Washington Nationals have won five of their last seven road games. Jordan Zimmermann gets the ball, and he’s 5-5 with a 3.42 ERA and 63 strikeouts this season. Zimmermann is 5-2 with a 2.84 ERA and 70 strikeouts in his career against the Braves.

The Atlanta Braves need a win after losing five of their last six games. The Braves have scored eight runs in their last three games and three or less runs in six of their last seven games. The Braves have lost five of their last eight games when scoring three or less runs. Nick Markakis leads Atlanta with 86 hits and 23 RBI while Freddie Freeman and Andrelton Simmons have combined for 69 RBI. The Atlanta Braves have won four of their last five home games. Shelby Miller takes the hill, and he’s 5-3 with a 1.94 ERA and 70 strikeouts this season. Miller is 2-0 with a 0.85 ERA and 30 strikeouts in his career against the Nationals.

The Nationals are 37-17 in their last 54 games following an off day and 65-31 in Zimmermanns last 96 starts. The Braves are 2-5 in their last 7 during game 1 of a series and 1-5 in Millers last 6 starts. The Nationals are 8-0 in the last 8 meetings.

The Nats have owend the Braves this season, and Zimmermann is in slightly better form right now than Miller. I like Washington to get the job done here.
