Monday’s matchup: Braves RH Derek Lowe (9-5, 4.42 ERA) vs. RH Craig Stammen (1-2, 5.43 ERA).
* Lowe is 5-2 with a 3.28 ERA in his past nine starts, including five quality starts in his past six. He’s 6-4 with a 3.68 ERA in 18 career games (12 starts) against the Nationals, but was just 1-3 with a 5.06 ERA in five starts against them in 2009.
* Stammen was recalled from Triple-A Monday. He went 0-2 with a 4.80 ERA in his last eight starts before being sent to the minors three weeks ago when Stephen Strasburg was added to the rotation. Stammen pitched well in his only start against the Braves, allowing four hits and two runs (on two homers) in six innings for no decision last Aug. 12 at Turner Field.
