The Nationals enter the series finale with the Braves with a 4 1/2-game lead in the NL East. Friday night was a tense game with a six-run rally by the Nationals that fell one run short. Saturday was a late-night showdown that ended in 11 innings. What is in store for Sunday?

Jayson Werth is starting in right field after missing the past two days with right shoulder inflammation. Wilson Ramos is starting after catching all 11 innings on Saturday. Danny Espinosa starts against a left-handed pitcher.
