Foltynewicz, who outpitched Max Scherzer in the Braves’ 7-1 win last Wednesday in Atlanta, opposes Stephen Strasburg in the second game of a three-game series at Nationals Park.

The right-hander Courtney Upshaw Authentic Jersey snapped his eight-game winless streak when he allowed four hits and one run in 5 1/3 innings against Washington (5-5) while striking out eight and walking two. He added a two-run double as Atlanta handed Washington its first loss of the season.

Scherzer (2-1) bounced back from last week’s loss and dominated Atlanta on Monday night in the series opener, tossing a two-hit shutout as Washington won 2-0 to snap a five-game losing streak.

Just tried to make a little mechanical tweak tonight, Scherzer told The Washington Post. But really the biggest thing was that on the first pitch, 0-0, I collected a lot of first-pitch outs. They were aggressive early in the count.

Atlanta had beaten Scherzer in three of his last five starts against the Braves.

Simmons is also guaranteed to average 10 points, eight rebounds and eight assists during the regular season, an effort which puts him alongside basketball royalty LeBron James, Russell Westbrook, James Harden, Jason Kidd, Michael Jordan, Magic Johnson, Wilt Chamberlain and Robertson as the only players to ever average such a stat line through a full season.

But Bogut, who tasted championship success with the Golden State Warriors in 2015, has followed Simmons’ meteoric rise with great interest and considers him to be miles clear of his nearest challengers.

Limited Graham Gano Jersey I don’t even think it’s a conversation, Bogut told ESPN when asked if Simmons would win the award. Obviously Mitchell is having a great year but Ben is night and day ahead and I think 99 percent of people would agree with me. If he doesn’t win it I’m calling a conspiracy theory or something.

Simmons began the season as a short-priced favourite to win the award before a mid-season surge from Mitchell, who is averaging a touch over 20 points per game this season and, like Simmons in Philadelphia, has been pivotal in helping his side secure a playoff berth.

However, former No. 1 draft pick Bogut believes Simmons has proven throughout the season to be the full package and someone who can have an enormous influence on a nightly basis.
