ATLANTA (AP) - Max Scherzer allowed five hits in seven innings, and the Washington Nationals tuned up for the playoffs with a 4-2 victory over Atlanta Braves on Tuesday night. Scherzer bounced back from his worst start of the season, also against the Braves last week, when he walked six and was roughed up for seven runs in an 8-2 loss.

ATHENS, Ga. (AP) - Georgia quarterback Jacob Eason is back at practice but it's not known if he'll be cleared to play Saturday when the 11th-ranked Bulldogs host No. 17 Mississippi State. Eason started in 2016 as a freshman but strained a ligament in his left knee in Georgia's season-opening victory over Appalachian State.

ATLANTA (AP) - There will be a second Chick-fil-A Kickoff game at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in 2021 - the first-ever meeting between Louisville and Mississippi. Officials made the announcement Tuesday. The game is normally held over the Labor Day weekend, though an exact date is still to be determined. Atlanta's other kickoff game in 2021 will pit Alabama vs. Miami.

ATLANTA (AP) - The Atlanta Braves have received final approval for a new spring training complex near Sarasota, Florida. The team plans to break ground next month after city commissioners in North Port voted 3-2 Tuesday to approve the $100 million complex, which was initially estimated to cost $75-80 million.
