The Atlanta Braves were off on Monday and will open a six game homestand tonight with the first of three games against the National League East-leading New York Mets. Charlie Morton will serve as the starting pitcher for Atlanta, while Tylor Megill will head to the mound for New York. First pitch is slated for 7:20 pm at Truist Park. That game will be broadcast on WLAQ 1410 AM and 96.9 FM; air time is 6:05 pm.
The Braves wrapped up an eight-game road trip on Sunday with a 4-0 shutout win over the Cincinnati Reds at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati, OH. Kyle Muller picked up his first major league victory, and both Ronald Acuna Jr. and Austin Riley contributed solo home runs.
Atlanta holds a record of 37-40 on the 2021 season and is in third place of the NL East, four and a half games behind division-leading New York.
In a minor league update, the Rome Braves were also off on Monday and will continue their current 12-game road trip this evening with the opener of a six-game series up in Wilmington, NC against the Blue Rocks. Game time is set for 7:05 pm.
