PITCHING MATCHUP: Nationals RH Anibal Sanchez (5-6, 3.71 ERA) vs Braves RH Mike Soroka (10-1, 2.24)

Sanchez suffered a left hamstring strain in May that cost him 10 days on the injured list and one missed start, but since he returned to the rotation the veteran has pitched to a 2.47 ERA with a .212 opponents' batting average across his past eight starts. The 35-year-old carried a perfect game into the sixth inning his return from the injured list on May 29 against the Braves, striking out seven in six scoreless innings, and the only start in that span in which he's allowed more than three runs came against the Atlanta in Washington on June 22 (four runs, six hits in six innings). Sanchez began the second half by allowing three runs on six hits in six innings Sunday at Philadelphia.

Soroka continues to put together a remarkable first full big-league season, ranking second in the majors in ERA while winning 10 consecutive decisions after beginning the second half with seven shutout innings Sunday at San Diego. The 21-year-old struck out a career-high nine batters and walked only one, and entered Friday leading the majors in win percentage (.909) along with homers allowed per nine innings (.037). Soroka, who is limiting opponents to a .221/.279/.282 slash line in 16 starts this season, only pitched two innings in his lone appearance against Washington this season - a June 23 start in which he left the game after being hit in the forearm with a pitch.
