After day rest on Thursday Dan Straily (4-4, 3.89) will make the start in Atlanta in the series opener at SunTrust Park on Friday. In his last outing, he threw four innings picking up a no-decision at Pittsburgh. In two of his starts in June, he’s 0-1 with a 5.73 ERA, and with a .333 batting average against the opposition.
Justin Bour is hopeful of making a comeback to the lineup, who was on a 10-day DL with a left ankle bruise.
The Braves posted 16 hits, which saw four from Brandon Phillips to beat the Nationals, 13-2, at Nationals Park for their first series victory in Washington in two years. Ender Inciarte, Phillips and Nick Markakis were Atlanta’s top lineup contributing 10-for-16 hits with seven runs scored and six RBIs.
Atlanta will send left-hander Sean Newcomb (0-1, 0.00 ERA) to make the start in the three-game against Miami Marlins Friday night.
