8.26 ERA versus a team that scored 29 runs last night, I predict Voth has his best outing of the year!

Dave had a win streak going for us. I don’t feel good about this.  :hang:

Their arms are tired.

Looked at the box score. The only guy they lifted was Freeman and that was only for his last at bat. Definitely violated multiple unwritten rules that way.

I'll save him the Voth risk.

FP contrasts the Nats' small ball with the Braves' swinging for the fences. So I expect a slugfest.

I was a bit concerned when I saw Holt was out.  Hopefully those concerns were baseless.

Not a bad idea when there's no ammo to be had.

Erlin looks like he’s about to get heat stroke.

Googling Vanover tells me he's either a pitcher-friendly ump or has a too-tight strike zone, so either he or his critics are inconsistent.

Sometimes an umpire just buys what a pitcher is selling.
