Atlanta Braves Vs. Washington Nationals: Saturday Probables, TV Schedule And More

The Atlanta Braves continue a three-game series against the Washington Nationals on Saturday, as Atlanta looks to rebound from a 7-4 loss on Friday night.

Tim Hudson took the loss on Friday, as the Nationals jumped on him early for four first inning runs. Hudson wound up surrendering all seven runs in the 7-4 loss.

Winning on Saturday won't be an easy task for the Braves, as they'll have to face off against Stephen Strasburg. So far in 2012, Strasburg is 4-1 with a 2.21 ERA, .214 BAA and 1.02 WHIP. Strasburg has struck out 64 in just 53 innings of work this year as well.

Mike Minor starts for the Braves, as the struggling left hander looks to get back on track. Minor has allowed at least four runs in each of his last six starts, and has only surrendered three or fewer runs in three of his nine starts this year. Minor takes a 6.96 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and .286 BAA into this afternoon's contest.

First pitch between the Braves and Nationals is scheduled for 4:05 p.m. ET. Televised coverage can be found on Fox Sports South.
