The teams have split the first two games of this series. On Friday night it was Atlanta in walk off fashion earning the 7-6 victory against the Nationals. Saturday night’s game was delayed well over three hours. In eleven innings the Nationals were able to defeat Atlanta by the score of 4-1 as the game finished at 2:30AM local time. With an 8PM Eastern Time start the players should get enough sleep for this close out game. The pitching matchup for Sunday night baseball featured Gio Gonzalez a left hander for the Nationals competing against fellow left hander Alex Wood of the Atlanta Brave. Gonzalez has been the weakest of the fine starting rotation for the Washington Nationals. The Washington lefty has been hit over his past two starts by allowing a total of nine earned runs and 14 hits working a total of 9 2/3rd innings in losses to the New York Mets and Philadelphia Phillies all in his home stadium. Alex Wood has been in better form by allowing a total of six earned runs over his past three starts working 18 innings. Problem is Wood has gotten no run support and the team is 0-3 in those games pitched by the Brave hurler.
