Series Preview: Braves @ Nationals

DC Sports Nexus ---- Friday, July 20, 2012

The Nat's face off against their most immediate division rival in a 4 game series, which includes a double header.  Needless to say, this one is a big deal.  Here's how it breaks down:

  • Friday: 7:05 PM, Hanson (10-5) vs Strasburg (10-4).
  • Saturday: 1:05 PM, Sheets (1-0) vs Jackson (5-5).
  • Saturday: 7:05 PM, Delgado (4-9) vs Detwiler (4-3).
  • Sunday: 1:35 PM, Jurrjens (3-3) vs Zimmermann (7-6).
*with double headers pitching match ups are suspect to change.

Game of the Series: Saturday.  Ben Sheets is second start in his long await return from injury and will be facing Jackson.  If Strasburg can take care of Hanson, the series may depend on this game.

Sound of the Series: Seems like every series this year against the Braves has been huge.  Well Here It Goes Again. 

Prediction Time:
Putting my reputation as a baseball guy on the line by saying how the series is going to play out.  I'm probably wrong so yell at me in the comments or on twitter @dru90.

  • Nationals WIN Friday.
  • Nationals LOSS Saturday (day).
  • Nationals WIN Saturday (night).
  • Nationals WIN Sunday.
Nationals WIN the series 3-1.
