Braves look to continue overpowering Nationals

With a showdown against the New York Mets looming this weekend, the Atlanta Braves look to set the stage by continuing their dominance of the Washington Nationals on Tuesday night.

After winning 8-0 at Washington on Monday, the Braves (96-58) have taken 13 of 17 from the Nationals this season and are 7-1 at Nationals Park. Atlanta hitters have feasted in Washington this season, hitting 24 home runs, the most by any visiting team in Nationals Park history (2008-present).

The Braves hit three homers in the series opener to back rookie Bryce Elder, who tossed a six-hit shutout for his first win since April 12. Matt Olson, who has been slumping, hit his 29th of the season and first since Sept. 6. He added a sacrifice fly and finished with three RBIs.
