The Atlanta Braves were off on Monday and will open a six game homestand tonight with the first of two interleague matches against the Boston Red Sox at Truist Park. Tucker Davidson will serve as the starting pitcher for Atlanta, and Eduardo Rodriguez will head to the mound for Boston. First pitch is set for 7:20 pm. The game will be broadcast on WLAQ 1410 AM and 96.9 FM; air time is 6:05 pm from the Atlanta Braves Radio Network.
The Braves closed out a six-game road trip this past Sunday down in Miami with a 6-4 victory over the Marlins; that allowed Atlanta to avoid being swept in the three-game weekend series between rivals in the National League East and to finish their road trip 2-4.
Atlanta is currently 30-33 on the ’21 season and in third place of the NL East, five and a half games behind the division-leading New York Mets.
