The fans at Nationals Park will be treated to a game between the Atlanta Braves and the Washington Nationals when they take their seats on Saturday.

The Braves will give the ball to starter Julio Teheran in this one. Right hander Teheran is 6-6 this season with a 5.14 ERA.

Teheran’s opponent in this one will be Stephen Strasburg. The Nationals right hander has a 3.28 ERA to go along with a 9-2 record this season.

Teheran rebounded from one of his worst outings of the year with a strong effort Sunday at Oakland. The 26-year-old Colombian recorded a season-high eight strikeouts and held the Athletics to two runs and three hits over 6 1/3 innings in a no-decision. Teheran is 4-4 with a 4.42 ERA in 16 starts against the Nationals.

Strasburg has been dominant in his last two starts, following up his 13-strikeout performance in a win over the Chicago Cubs with seven scoreless frames Monday against the New York Mets. The 28-year-old limited the Mets to two hits and three walks while striking out six in a no-decision. Strasburg is 10-8 with a 3.95 ERA in 26 starts against Atlanta.

Oddsmakers currently have the Nationals listed as 208-moneyline favorites versus the Braves, while the game’s total is sitting at 8½.

If the Atlanta Braves are going to make a run at the Washington Nationals in the National League East, they might need to upgrade the back end of their bullpen. The Nationals rallied in the ninth inning Friday before recording their seventh walk-off win of the season, and they’ll try to keep the momentum going when they host the Braves for the third of a four-game series Saturday.

Washington scored three runs in the ninth inning Friday against Atlanta closer Jim Johnson, then won 5-4 on Daniel Murphy’s game-winning single in the 10th, evening the series at a game apiece. Braves ace Julio Teheran takes the mound Saturday looking to snap a three-start winless streak dating to his victory at Washington on June 14. Teheran has had mixed results against the Nationals this season, allowing seven runs over four innings in a loss April 19 in Atlanta before limiting the Nationals to two runs and six hits over seven frames in the win last month. Teheran opposes Washington right-hander Stephen Strasburg, who has faced the Braves three times this season, recording at least 10 strikeouts in each.

Washington was a 5-4 winner in its last match on the road against the Braves. They won as -260 favorites, while the total score of 9 made winners of OVER bettors.

The Braves were a 5-4 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Nationals. That made winners of bettors who got Washington at -260 on the moneyline, while the total score (9) was good news for OVER bettors.
