Keys to the Game: Braves Vs. Nationals September 23, 2011


The slumping Atlanta Braves hope they can spoil the Nationals’ current five game winning streak and knock around young phenom Stephen Strasburg. While Strasburg has yet to post a decision in his first three starts after returning to the Majors from Tommy John surgery, he has been dominant, allowing only two Earned Runs in 14 innings, for a miniscule 1.29 ERA. Fortunately, for Braves fans, Atlanta will send Nats slayer, Tim Hudson (15-10, 3.19 ERA) to the hill tonight. Hudson is 3-1 with a 2.16 ERA in four starts against the Washington his season. Check out Hudson’s success against the Nationals in 2011.
