Skidding Nationals seek bounce-back effort vs. Braves

June 7 - The Washington Nationals will look to end a four-game losing streak when they host the Atlanta Braves on Friday night.

Atlanta rallied to take the series opener 5-2 on Thursday and has won three of four.

The Nationals have managed just six runs over their past three games. On Thursday, CJ Abrams and Lane Thomas hit back-to-back solo homers in the sixth inning. The next two batters singled, but Washington was unable to add on against Atlanta starter Reynaldo Lopez.

"I think we've just got to build off those at-bats and get guys on in those situations," Thomas said.
