The Atlanta Braves will try get back in the win column and salvage a series split when they face the Washington Nationals Thursday afternoon at Truist Park. Atlanta took the opener on Memorial Day 5-3 but have since dropped two straight to fall to 25-28 on the season. They enter play on Thursday 4.5 games behind the New York Mets for the NL East lead.

Tucker Davidson will make his second start of the season, and third of his career, Thursday for the Braves while the Nationals will counter with veteran left-hander Patrick Corbin. Davidson has been great at Gwinnett and was solid in his season debut allowing three runs over six innings to the Mets in mid-May.

First pitch from Truist Park is scheduled for 12:20 p.m. ET and can be seen on Bally Sports South.
