Braves rookie Gohara set for rematch with Nats' Scherzer

According to STATS
According to STATS

Washington Nationals at Atlanta Braves

  1. The Nationals avoided the sweep by taking out the Dodgers on Sunday night, 7-1. It is just the second time in franchise history that Washington has won 90+ games in back-to-back seasons, joining the 1979-80 Expos.
  2. The Braves lost two of three to the Mets over the weekend, dropping Sunday's rubber game, 5-1. Atlanta is 0-23 when scoring one run or fewer this season, the first time it has been winless since 2008 (0-26).
  3. Ryan Zimmerman went 3-for-4 with two home runs and four RBI in the win on Sunday over the Dodgers. Zimmerman has tied his career-high from 2009 with 33 home runs and set a new career-high with six multi-homer games.
  4. Freddie Freeman's first-inning double on Sunday was his 60th extra-base hit of the season. Freeman is now the first Brave with 60+ extra-base hits in back-to-back seasons since Andrus Jones' seven-year run from 2000-06.
  5. Max Scherzer allowed season-highs of six walks and seven runs in his loss to Atlanta last Wednesday. Scherzer was the first Nationals starter with at least six walks and seven runs since Livan Hernandez on June 16, 2010.
  6. Luiz Gohara defeated Max Scherzer and the Nats for his first career win Wednesday night in Washington. Gohara joined Andre Rienzo as the only Brazilian-born pitchers to win a game in major league history.

ATLANTA -- In his last start, only his second in the major leagues, Atlanta Braves rookie Luiz Gohara outpitched Washington Nationals ace and Cy Young contender Max Scherzer.

On Tuesday, he gets to try it again.

Gohara (1-1, 6.30 ERA) is queued up for a rematch with Scherzer (14-6, 2.59) and the Nationals in the opener of a three-game series at SunTrust Park.

Washington (90-59) has clinched the National League East title for the fourth time in six years. Atlanta (67-81) was mathematically eliminated from playoff consideration after its Sunday loss to the New York Mets. The two teams have split 16 games this season, with the Braves winning two of three last week in Washington.

Gohara showed why he is in contention to join the Atlanta rotation on a full-time basis in 2018. The big left-hander from Brazil, who went from Class A to the majors in one season, beat the Nationals 8-2 on Wednesday. He allowed two runs (one earned) on six hits in six innings, striking out six. He didn't issue a walk.

In that start, Gohara located his four-seam fastball -- something he couldn't do in his major league debut against Texas.

"The kid gets locked in and really competes," Atlanta manager Brian Snitker said. "And that's what I heard about him from guys that played with him, the guys that have had him, been around him. They say once he gets out there, he's trying to beat you. That's legit stuff right there, too."

Scherzer endured his worst start of the season against the Braves last week. He gave up a season-high seven runs on seven hits and a season-high six walks in six innings. He threw 116 pitches, part of the plan to stretch him out for the postseason.

"For the first 100 pitches, I felt like I was executing pitches the way I wanted to," Scherzer said. "Then, after pitch 100, that's when the wheels fell off and I was searching for everything. Sometimes that happens. I don't think anything's broken. My arm feels fine. There's nothing wrong here. This is why I needed to pitch that deep into the game, so I can shake off some of that rust."

The big hiccup for Scherzer came when he allowed a grand slam to Braves left fielder Matt Kemp. However, on Tuesday, he isn't likely to face Kemp, who has missed the past two games after leaving the Friday contest with a strained hamstring.

In 16 career appearances, 14 starts, against Atlanta, Scherzer is 6-5 with a 4.04 ERA. In 2017, he has made four starts against the Braves, going 1-2 with a 4.91. He was 4-0 against Atlanta a year ago.

The hottest batter for the Braves has been center fielder Ender Inciarte, who is 10 hits shy of becoming only the seventh player in Atlanta franchise history to reach 200. The last Brave to get 200 hits was Marquis Grissom, who had 207 in 1996.

Washington's Ryan Zimmerman is on the verge of a 30-homer/30-double season. Last week, he joined Adam Dunn as the only Nationals player to post two 30-homer seasons with the club.
