Nationals hope pitching continues to thrive against Braves

The Washington Nationals hope to see their streak of excellent efforts from their starting pitchers continue when they take on the Atlanta Braves in the second game on their four-game series on Friday at Atlanta's SunTrust Park.

The pitching matchup features Atlanta right-hander Julio Teheran (5-6, 3.71) against Washington southpaw Patrick Corbin (7-5, 3.39).

The Nationals won the series opener 13-4 on Thursday, behind the pitching and hitting of Stephen Strasburg, who won his 12th game, homered and drove in five runs.
