Game Thread 4/18: Braves vs. Nationals

Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Braves are winners of their last five games and are perfect at SunTrust Park following a four-game sweep of the San Diego Padres. The Braves will look to continue their winning streak on Tuesday as they welcome the Washington Nationals to their new park.

As pointed out by ESPN Stats & Info, last night's win made the Braves the first team to start 4-0 in a new stadium since the 1997 Braves started 5-0 at Turner Field.

Mike Foltynewicz will make the start on the bump for the series opener on Tuesday and will be going up against Washington's Max Scherzer. The rest of Atlanta's lineup can be seen here:
