ESPN Monday Night Baseball will begin at 7PM Eastern Time as the Washington Nationals will be home to battle the Atlanta Braves. As the teams finished off weekend series on Sunday the Atlanta Braves held a 6 ½ game lead on the second place Washington Nationals who hold the final NL Wildcard spot. Atlanta suffered a blow to their offense as they lose outfielder Nick Markakis to the DL with broken left wrist after being hit by a pitch on Friday night. He was putting up good numbers with a batting average of .284 with nine homers and 55 runs batted in. Nationals have struggled in the first two games at home to the Dodgers dropping the first two games scoring no greater than three runs.

Two NL Central foes look to get back into contention for an NL Wildcard as the Cincinnati Reds have a home date with the Pittsburgh Pirates at 7PM Eastern Time on MLB Extra Innings Channel. Getting the start for Cincinnati will be righty Sonny Gray as he will oppose Pirates righty Jorden Lyles. The gap between first place and last place in the NL Central at the All Star Break was 4 ½ games with both the Reds and Pirates in contention. But the following couple of weeks have been bad for the Pirates and Reds. Entering Sunday Cincinnati had fallen to 8 games back of first place St Louis with Pittsburgh ten games out of first place. Wildcard now a longshot for both clubs as the Reds sit seven and Pirates nine games back of the final spot. After losing the first two games at the New York Mets, the Pirates had lost seven straight and 14 of 16 since the break. Cincinnati has lost nine of 16 since the break after splitting the first two games in their weekend series at home to Colorado. Jordan Lyles has a record of 5-7 in seventeen starts with an ERA of 5.36 and WHIP of 1.47. He comes off a poor outing at home to St Louis giving up eight runs with five earned over 1 2/3rd innings in a 14-8 home defeat to St Louis. Sonny Gray checks in at 5-6 in 20 starts with an ERA of 3.29 and WHIP of 1.12. Gray worked at Milwaukee last Monday allowing one run and four hits over six innings of a 6-5 road win.
