Nationals-Braves Preview

(AP) -- Shelby Miller and Jordan Zimmermann locked up in a superb duel last week but neither pitcher could end his winless drought.

For Miller, that has reached seven games, and the right-hander will try for another dominant outing Tuesday night against the Washington Nationals while helping the Atlanta Braves avoid matching their longest losing streak to their NL East rivals.

Miller retired 17 of his first 18 batters and ended up yielding one run and three hits in Washington on Wednesday. He was also in line for the loss when he exited after the seventh inning because Zimmermann had tossed eight scoreless innings.
