  • Atlanta Braves vs. Washington Nationals- 4/18/17 MLB Pick Odds and Prediction

Bucknor, who has been named the worst umpire in baseball multiple times in player surveys, was behind the plate for last night's 3-1 Nationals win over the Braves. Facing a 1-2 count, d'Arnaud swung and clearly missed a pitch that bounced in the dirt. That's because, despite handshakes and dugout retreats and encroaching groundscrew members and all the stuff that follows a final out, home-plate umpire C.B. Bucknor ruled d'Arnaud had fouled off the pitch in question. With Scherzer set to oppose Mike Foltynewicz in the pitching matchup, the over/under now sits at 7.5 runs.

NY trailed 2-0 with two outs in the sixth before Bruce lined a three-run homer off frustrated starter Vince Velasquez.

But Washington has dominated its division rival over the last two-plus season, improving to 37-13 over their last 50 meetings. They snapped Atlanta's five-game winning streak and Kelley joked that he had secured the first double save in Nationals history.

After Freeman drew a leadoff walk in the fourth, Nick Markakis singled and the Braves had their best scoring chance against Scherzer.

It took a few games for him to get going at SunTrust Park, but Freeman finally exploded on Monday night when he smacked two dingers and slugged two doubles as the Braves eventually won in walk-off fashion. But with runners on first and second and none out, Brandon Phillips grounded into a force at second - he hustled to avoid a double play - and Adonis Garcia grounded into an inning-ending double play.

Werth singled off Julio Teheran and scored in the second inning.

RAYS 5, TIGERS 1: Matt Andriese outpitched Michael Fulmer, Tim Beckham hit a two-run homer, and the Tampa Bay Rays beat the Detroit Tigers. Atlanta C Tyler Flowers (strained right hamstring) didn't start but came on in the ninth as a pinch hitter. But Braves catcher Kurt Suzuki alertly threw to third base when Harper tried to sneak a stolen base, and Harper was thrown out trying to retreat to second.

"I think everybody knows how good we are and what we can do", Harper said, adding the expected return of shortstop Trea Turner from the disabled list "is huge as well". The Nationals haven't announced where Turner will play, but manager Dusty Baker assured it will be a "warm" spot to lessen the chance of re-injuring the hamstring. Washington will recall RHP Joe Ross and place him in the rotation, beginning with Wednesday's game in Atlanta. Washington is 6-1 in Strasburg's last 7 starts against the Braves and 5-1 in his last 6 road starts against Atlanta. He has a 0.95 ERA over his first three starts, allowing just two earned runs in 19 innings.
