Game 109 discussion thread: Nationals vs. Braves

Since the 2007 season, only one other pitcher in the major leagues has more wins against the Braves than John Lannan. The left-handed starter has seven wins in that span, second to the 11 wins of Philadephia’s Cole Hamels.

Lannan’s last outing was a rough one, four runs on five hits in 5 2/3 innings in a 5-2 loss to Florida. But facing a team that he has dominated may be the best cure. Lannan is 4-0 with a 2.89 ERA in his last five starts against Atlanta.

As the Nationals hope to extend their three-game winning streak, discuss the game and what you see here.
