The Washington Nationals and the Atlanta Braves will finish up their MLB series on Sunday.

The Braves took the first two games in this set, 4-2 Thursday and 4-3 Friday. On Saturday in game three, Atlanta posted three runs in the sixth inning and held on for an intense 5-4 win.

The Nationals will send out Max Scherzer in the start Sunday. Across his 148.2 innings and 9-5 mark so far, Scherzer has a 2.60 ERA with 207 Ks and 28 BBs.
Over on the Braves’ side, they’re going with Mike Soroka on Sunday. Over 152.2 innings and an 11-3 mark this year, Soroka has a 2.53 ERA with 119 Ks and 35 BBs.

The Nationals are 4-0 in their last four Sunday games and 10-1 in Scherzer’s last 11 starts. Washington is 14-5 in Scherzer’s last 19 Sunday starts and 38-16 in his last 54 road starts.

Meanwhile, the Braves are 39-14 in their last 53 Sunday games and 5-2 in the last seven in game four of a series. Atlanta is 8-2 in Soroka’s last 10 home starts and 20-8 in his last 28 starts.

After a nice win/quality start streak earlier this year, Scherzer has come back to earth a bit with 10 earned over his last four starts (each was a no-decision).

As for Soroka, he had a streak of six quality starts broken his last time up but still won. This should be a great pitching matchup and could go either way. I’m going to stick with Soroka and the at-home Braves though.
