Atlanta, winner of seven of 10 from Washington this season, has matched its longest undefeated stretch since a 15-game run in 2000.
Nationals outfielder Jayson Werth was able to start Monday against the Braves after getting hit twice by pitches Sunday. Werth had X-rays on his right hand after Sunday's game, which came back negative.
Werth is batting .432 with a .693 slugging percentage and 1.198 OPS in his last 27 games. He has seven home runs and 17 RBI in that span.
