The Nationals have lost four straight to the Braves this season and now send Gio Gonzalez (2-1, 4.50 ERA) to the mound to stop the bleeding. Gonzalez is coming off the best start of the season, an eight-inning, one-hit performance. The Braves send Tim Hudson (2-1, 4.50 ERA) to the mound seeking his career victory No. 200. The right-hander has been stuck at 199 career wins since April 13, his win over the Nationals in Washington. The lineups are here. As always, talk about the game here.
