Braves can’t complete comeback late, lose 5-4

Braves can’t complete comeback late, lose 5-4

Stephen Strasburg was quite good tonight and the Nationals needed every bit of it. As the Braves and Nationals got underway tonight it was apparent Max Fried did not have his best command. The Atlanta left hander gave it a valiant effort, but in the end it was the Washington Nationals taking the win after receiving seven strong innings from Stephen Strasburg who was just a little better tonight. Fried managed his way through three innings with little resistance, but was hit by the BABIP bug during the fourth inning that saw three Washington singles that resulted in a single run to put the...

The break was much needed for the road-weary Braves who had played a game on every day except one this month prior to yesterday. Atlanta’s matchup will be the Washington Nationals for a quick two-game stint before the Tigers come to town on Friday. Tonight, the hill will feature a tasty battle between emerging young star Max Fried and the veteran Stephen Strasburg. Strasburg has not historically had great results against the Braves...
