(Jonathan Newton/WASHINGTON POST)

The Braves have the third-best record in the National League this season, but the Nationals have played them even so far this year, going 6-6. And since 2008, the Nationals are actually 36-30 against Atlanta, a span during which the Nationals have a .403 winning percentage compared to the Braves’ .530.

The Nationals enter on a six-game losing streak. As always, talk about the game right here.
