Game 35 discussion thread: Nationals at Braves

With a lead after the sixth inning, the Nationals can turn to Sean Burnett, Drew Storen and Tyler Clippard, who have struck out 47 and walked 13 in 53 1/3 combined innings. If the Braves are ahead after six, they can call on Jonny Venters, Eric O’Flaherty and Craig Kimbrel, who have a 1.21 combined ERA. If you like late-inning comebacks, this might not be the series for you.

The Nationals dropped their first series of the year against the Braves, winning one of three at Nationals Park in the season’s opening series. The Nationals are 8-13 against the National League East, worst in the division. It won’t be easy, but they can start changing that over the next three games, starting tonight.

As always, talk about the game right here.
