The Atlanta Braves and the Washington Nationals are set to face off tonight at 7 p.m. on MLB Network in the first of a four-game series.

The Nationals, who hold a grasp on the No. 1 spot in the NL East, will look to fend off the reeling Braves, who are coming off of a sweep at the hands of the Philadelphia Phillies. The Braves are just 1.5 games behind the Nationals though, and a strong showing this weekend could land them atop the division.

The Nationals will throw Jordan Zimmermann, while the Braves send Gavin Floyd to the mound. In just eight starts so far this year, Floyd has just one win while maintaining a stellar 2.98 ERA.
