The Nationals and Braves continue to mimic one another, for both richer and poorer. From June 28 to July 13, the Nationals went 10-4 but gained no ground in the NL East. ┬áIn the past 10 days, the Nationals have gone 3-6, but they’ve only lost a half game because they Braves have gone 4-6, including a loss last night on the West Coast in which they allowed the Padres 20 hits. Tonight, all-star Jordan Zimmermann will face A.J. Burnett as the Nationals try to avoid a third straight loss. Talk about the game right here.
