GameThread: Nationals @ Braves, 9/17/2016

Josh Collmenter makes his first sojourn in an Atlanta uniform against Gio Gonzalez and the NL East-leading Nats.

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Josh Collmenter day? If you like really really over the top (and not in a hammy, overacting way) deliveries, I suppose.

The Braves get a break with a day off for Wilson Ramos, but Trea Turner is still around, which means they'll give up at least three or four runs to that young man.

Freddie Freeman is back, and Dansby Swanson is hitting seventh rather than eighth.
