ATLANTA — The disparity between the 2013 Atlanta Braves and the 2013 Washington Nationals is massive, obvious by the outcomes of the 16 games these two rivals have played so far this season.
After some Saturday night heroics that led to a 15-inning win, the Nationals couldn't follow up with another victory in Atlanta, falling 2-1 to the Braves.
ATLANTA — Oh, hello there. Long time, no speak.
ATLANTA — Their starting pitcher had departed some 4 1/2 hours earlier, ejected after plunking a batter in the first inning and then losing all semblance of his command in the second.
