The Braves will try to salvage a split in their weather shortened two game series with the Washington Nationals Sunday afternoon at Nationals Park. Tommy Hanson (5-4, 3.84 ERA) will try to bounce back from his shortest outing of the season on Sunday and try to stop Atlanta's losing streak against the Nationals in the process.
Hanson lasted just 3 1/3 innings against the Cardinals on Monday. The Braves went on to lose that game 8-2 with Hanson on the hook for six of those runs.
Getting a victory won't be an easy task against Washington starter Gio Gonzalez (7-1, 2.04 ERA) who is looking for his sixth straight win in as many starts. Gonzalez struck out 10 while allowing two runs and one hit in a 7-2 win over the Braves last Sunday at Turner Field.
Atlanta has lost nine of its last 11 games.
