ATLANTA -- Prized prospect Dansby Swanson, who made his major league debut for the Atlanta Braves on Wednesday, will get his first taste of a division rivalry when he faces the Washington Nationals in a four-game series that begins Thursday at Turner Field.The National League East-leading Nationals (70-49) will open a four-game series against the last-place Braves (44-76). Washington will send rookie right-hander Reynaldo Lopez (1-1, 5.74) against Atlanta rookie right-hander Rob Whalen (1-1, 7.31) in a rematch of the Sunday game that Washington won 8-7.Im excited about watching him play, Atlanta manager Brian Snitker said. Better to get him out there than have him sitting around. We want him to play. We made the trade, we got him up and we want to see him play.Swanson was recalled after the Braves traded veteran Erick Aybar to Detroit for utilityman Mike Aviles and a minor league catcher on Tuesday. The spot on the 40-man roster opened up after the club designated Aviles for assignment. Swanson was in the lineup Wednesday night.This is what Ive been working for since I was a little kid, Swanson said. I think Im ready for it and time will tell.Swanson went 2-for-4 in his major league debut on Wednesday while hitting eighth. He did not have a chance in the field.Swanson, 22, was the No. 1 player chosen in the 2015 draft but was traded less than a year later by Arizona in a trade that sent right-handed pitcher Shelby Miller to the Diamondbacks. Swanson, who grew up in the Atlanta suburbs, was an All-America at Vanderbilt.Swanson split the 2016 season between High-A Carolina and Double-A Mississippi, hitting a combined .275 with nine homers in 105 games. He becomes the first No. 1 pick to debut in the season following his selection since Washington pitcher Stephen Strasburg, who was drafted in 2009 and debuted in 2010.The Nationals are eager to get another look at Lopez, who will be recalled from Triple-A Syracuse and make his third major league start. Lopez last pitched on Saturday, which allows him to start on full rest.Lopez struggled in his first two starts. He allowed six runs on 10 hits, but struck out nine, in 4 2/3 innings against the Dodgers, and gave up three runs, but with five walks, in four innings against the Giants. But he bounced back to limit the Braves to one run in seven innings of work on Aug. 13.The Nationals hope Lopez can hang onto that spot in the rotation until Joe Ross is able to return from his bout with right shoulder inflammation.Id rather settle on one guy, but that depends on the person, Washington manager Dusty Baker said. If one guys steps up, that would make our decision a lot easier.Atlanta is giving Whalen another shot. The rookie, acquired last year from the Mets along with right-hander John Gant, was tagged for six runs in five innings of his most recent start against Washington.

TUCSON, Ariz. -- Sam Darnold is settling into the quarterback role at USC quite nicely, and hes got the Trojans in the thick of the race in the Pac-12 South.The redshirt freshman, who didnt start until the fourth game of the season, threw five touchdown passes -- three to JuJu Smith Schuster -- in USCs 48-14 rout of Arizona on Saturday.Theres a lot of stuff that Ive learned these last few weeks thats really helped in this game, Darnold said, and obviously games that were looking ahead.He completed 20 of 32 attempts for 235 yards and ran for 54 yards on six carries before sitting out the fourth quarter. He threw for 186 yards and four scores as USC built a 34-7 halftime lead.Not to blow his head up too much but hes playing really good football right now, way beyond his years, his maturity level, Trojans coach Clay Helton said.Darnold was more upset about the plays he didnt make.He said he is taking his job week by week.If I progress, I progress Darnold said. Thats part of growing, mentally and physically.Smith-Schuster finished with nine catches for 132 yards.The Trojans (4-3, 3-2 Pac-12) rolled for 575 yards and remained a half-game out of first place in the Pac-12 South. Arizona (2-5, 0-4) lost its fourth in a row.USC won away from home for the first time since the interim label was removed from Heltons title. The Trojans had lost five straight away from home, dating to last season.This was a much-needed road victory, Helton said.Wildcats true freshman Khalil Tate, just shy of his 18th birthday, completed 7 of 18 passes for 58 yards in his first collegiate start. Playing in place of injured Brandon Dawkins, Tate threw an interception and fumbled the ball away, leading to two USC touchdowns. He ran for 72 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries.Hes a true freshman so we wanted to rattle him a little bit and get some hits on him, USC defensive back Chris Hawkins said.Coach Rich Rodriguez said Tate is not the nervous type ...but theere are times when a 17-year-old freshman looks like a 17-year-old freshman.ddddddddddddRodriguez was asked what hed say to fans that are unhappy with the Wildcats.Were 2-5. Weve had some adversity, he said. We can fix problems in recruiting and the other problems we can fix in the short term. Peoples opinions are peoples opinions. Were not happy when were not winning.Arizona committed four turnovers, USC none.It was a huge emphasis this week in practice, Darnold said, so it was on my mind the whole game. I just didnt want to turn the ball over.The Trojans scored on their first and last possession and, early in the game, converted one third down after another. They were 4-for-4 on third down.Adoree Jackson picked up a Tate fumble and returned it 26 yards to the Arizona 10 to set up the Trojans third touchdown. Iman Marshall intercepted Tates pass late in the first half and took it back 12 yards to the Wildcats 13-yard line, leading to another score that put USC up 27-7.Im not sure what our quarterback situation is going forward, Rodriguez said, but we have at least two weeks now to figure something out.THE TAKEAWAYUSC: The Trojans are rolling. After opening conference play with losses to Stanford and Utah, USC has beaten Arizona State, Colorado and Arizona. California and Oregon are next before a Nov. 12 matchup at No. 5 Washington.ARIZONA: The Wildcats have been hit by injuries, particularly at quarterback, and are in a tailspin that began with an overtime loss to then-No. 9 Washington.UP NEXTUSC: After their first road win since coach Clay Helton had the interim tag removed, the Trojans dont play again until Oct. 27 against California.ARIZONA: The Wildcats get their first bye since the 2014 season and they could use it to get Dawkins and others healthy.
