On the bright side, BK is not leading off. He’s hitting 8th. Bonifacio is leading off and playing left field while Justin DHs. Also, the Nats refuse to capitalize on the Bravos’ lousy play.
On the dark side, the Braves have lost seven straight and appear to be trudging toward a cliff. Andrelton is not in the lineup after hurting his ankle. Freeman’s been BK for the past month or so.
If ever a Braves team needed a win, this one needs it today. Julio will probably give them a chance. The rest of it’s totally up in the air.
Bonifacio LF, La Stella, Freeman, Justin DH, Heyward 9, Johnson, Gattis, BK, Pena SS.
