The Nationals have lost five straight this season against the Braves, nine games dating back to last season. They, however, have perhaps their best starter, Jordan Zimmermann (4-1, 2.00 ERA) taking the mound on Wednesday with the hope of stopping the bleeding. Zimmermann’s last start was a one-hit shutout. The Nationals’ 13-14 record in April is their first losing month since August 2011. Paul Maholm (3-2, 3.30 ERA) starts for the Braves. The lineups are here. As always, talk about the game here.
