Washington Nationals At Atlanta Braves: GameThread 29 Of 162

New, 530 comments

Can the Washington Nationals bounce back from a rough first two games in Atlanta's Turner Field to earn a split of the four-game set with the Braves? Nats' right-hander Dan Haren takes the hill against Kris Medlen in the series finale. One more game in Atlanta and then it's off to PNC Park.
