The Atlanta Braves will get a brief chance to look back fondly on their 2021 season Monday. Then they will return to the task at hand. After visiting the White House on Monday morning to celebrate their 2021 World Series title, the Braves begin a three-game series against the Washington Nationals.
Joey Meneses hit a two-run homer in the seventh inning to help the visiting Washington Nationals rally for a 3-2 win against the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday afternoon and avoid a three-game sweep Meneses and Tres Barrera each had two hits for the Nationals, who ended a three-game losing streak.
Looking to start your baseball betting week on a high note? Duh. Of course. Who isn't? Betting on Monday is always a little tricky because there usually isn't a full slate of games, but that's not the case for Tuesday games.
The Washington Nationals and the Miami Marlins are limping toward the finish line, dreaming of better days in the future. Washington, which will host Miami for a three-game series that begins on Friday, has the worst record in the major leagues (49-94).
The Nationals will place catcher Keibert Ruiz on the 10-day injured list Friday and select the contract of fellow catcher Israel Pineda from Triple-A Rochester, as first reported by TalkNats (Twitter links).
