The Braves have already won against the Padres, which means the Nationals’ lead in the NL East will either remain at 5 ½ games or drop to 4 ½ before the night ends. It is worth reminding that the Nationals are 7-1 on their current road trip and 40-22 on the road overall this season. Tonight, Jordan Zimmermann will try to remain the NL ERA leader (2.35) as he opposes Madison Bumgarner. Talk about the game right here.
