Nats' Roark looks to continue strong finish vs. Braves

(TSX / STATS) -- ATLANTA -- The final starts of the season carry significance for Tanner Roark of the Washington Nationals and the Atlanta Braves' R.A. Dickey, pitchers on different trajectories who face each other Thursday night.

Roark (13-9, 4.43 ERA) hopes to continue his second-half bounce-back as he readies for a role in the postseason rotation as the Nationals bid for their first World Series appearance.

Dickey (9-10, 4.41 ERA) is trying to recover from a rough late-season stretch and show that he is worthy of a spot for 2018 with the Braves as a stabilizer in what figures to be a very young rotation.
