Freddie Freeman looks to stay hot Saturday evening when the Atlanta Braves continue a four-game series against the Washington Nationals. Ian Anderson will make his fourth start of the season and will be looking to bounce back from a short start last time out. The Nationals will counter with left hander Patrick Corbin who allowed five runs in 5 1/3 innings against the Braves in his last start. Atlanta recalled Sean Newcomb earlier today to give them a fresh arm in the bullpen. This will be Newcomb’s first stint on the active roster since he was demoted in early August after struggling as a member of the rotation.
