Nats lineup for series finale vs. Braves

We’ve got a battle of promising 26-year-old hurlers in the series finale between the Nationals and Braves.

The Nats will take their hacks at right-hander Kris Medlen, who has torn it up for the Braves since moving into the rotation July 31.

He’s 3-0 in his four starts this season, and hasn’t allowed more than one run in any of those four outings.

His last time out, Medlen pitched a five-hit, complete-game shutout against the Padres, walking none and striking out six.

So yeah, he’s kind of grooving right now.

Ross Detwiler, on the other hand, is 3-0 with a 1.33 ERA in four home starts since the All-Star break.

He’s had three starts against the Braves this season, so he knows their guys pretty well. In those three outings, Detwiler is 1-0 with a 4.00 ERA.

For the Nats:

RF Werth
CF Harper
3B Zimmerman
LF Morse
1B LaRoche
SS Desmond
2B Espinosa
C Suzuki
P Detwiler

For the Braves:

LF Prado
CF Johnson
RF Heyward
3B Jones
1B Freeman
C Ross
2B Pastronicky
SS Janish
P Medlen
