Braves Welcome Nationals To Turner For Three Games

The Braves come away from a 3-1 series victory over the Dodgers, which featured some great starting pitching, and welcome Adam Dunn and the Washington Nationals to Atlanta for a three game set.

The pitching match-ups will be:

Tuesday, 7:10 EST: Scott Olsen vs. Mike Minor 

Wednesday, 7:10 EST: Livan Hernandez vs. Tim Hudson

Thursday, 1:05 EST: John Lannan vs. Derek Lowe

The Phillies are now 2.5 games back and play the San Francisco Giants for three games, so the Braves have a good chance to extend their lead if they can take care of the pesky Washington Nationals who always seem to give them trouble.
