_______________________________________ _________

Smoltz (1-1, 3.15 ERA) pitched two-hit shutout ball through seven innings at home against Washington last Thursday, but the Nationals scored against him twice in the eighth for the only runs of their 2-0 victory. Smoltz suffered the loss despite holding his opponent to three runs or fewer for his seventh straight start, dating to last September.

Jerome Williams (0-2, 4.91) will get the start for Washington. The right-hander took the loss at Atlanta last Wednesday, when he allowed two runs in five innings of an 8-3 Nationals defeat. He has not received any runs of support during either of his outings this season.

Williams is 1-1 with a 3.55 ERA in four career starts against the Braves.
