Gameday Thread: Nationals vs Braves, Game 2 (L)
« Topic Start: September 10, 2005, 09:41:42 AM »
Game Time: 1:20 PM

Livan Hernandez, RHP (15-6, 3.80)
Hernandez will face the Braves for the third time this year. He doesn't have a decision against Atlanta, but he has a respectable 2.35 ERA. In his last start, Hernandez allowed two runs in eight-plus innings and helped the Nationals down the Marlins, 5-2. Hernandez gave up six hits, struck out four and walked two.

Jorge Sosa, RHP (10-3, 2.74)
Sosa strained his hamstring and had to exit Saturday's start against the Reds after just five innings. His abbreviated effort was still good enough for him to win for the second time in his past three starts. The only loss during that span came on Aug. 30, when he allowed the Nationals three runs and nine hits in five innings. The Braves are 11-4 in his 15 starts this year.
