The Atlanta Braves were off on Thursday and will return to action tonight up in New York with the first of three outings against the NL East-leading Mets. Ian Anderson will be the starting pitcher for Atlanta, and Taijuan Walker will head to the mound for New York. First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 pm at Citi Field. That game will be broadcast on WLAQ 1410 AM/96.9 FM; air time is 5:55 pm from the Atlanta Braves Radio Network.
The Braves opened their current five-game road trip by splitting a two-game interleague set in Boston versus the Red Sox; they fell to a game below .500 with a loss in Wednesday night’s finale at Fenway Park.
Atlanta is now two and a half games behind New York in the NL East with a record of 24 wins and 25 losses.
