ATLANTA — It would be one thing if the Nationals' struggles against the Braves were limited to one bad weekend, as was the case the last three days at Turner Field.
The Nationals completed their sweep of the Miami Marlins on Thursday in what ended up a 7-1 blowout in the box score.
Stephen Strasburg entered Thursday’s matinee against the Marlins with a 6.10 ERA after two starts, and just a day after the Nationals’ bullpen was needed for over seven innings.
Stephen Strasburg was superb and Ian Desmond's grand slam broke the game open in a 7-1 Nationals win Thursday afternoon.
For his first start of the 2014 season - and the 10th overall in his young MLB career - Taylor Jordan was handed quite the tough assignment on Sunday.
