The Atlanta Braves were off on Thursday and will play their home opener (in front of fans!) at Truist Park tonight versus the Philadelphia Phillies. Charlie Morton will serve as the starting pitcher for Atlanta, while Zack Wheeler will head to the mound for Philadelphia. The first pitch is set for 7:20 pm. Listen on WLAQ 1410 AM or 96.9 FM; air time is 6:05 pm from the Atlanta Braves Radio Network.
The Braves finished their season-opening road trip this past Wednesday with a sweep of the Washington Nationals in a double header at DC. Their record is now 2-4. The Phillies lead the National League East with a record of 5-1; three of those wins were at the Braves’ expense last week.
