The Atlanta Braves had a scheduled off day on Monday and will be back in action tonight at Truist Park with the first of three games versus the Chicago Cubs. Max Fried will be the starting pitcher for Atlanta, and Marcus Stroman will head to the mound for Chicago. First pitch is slated for 7:20 pm. Listen locally on WLAQ 1410 AM or 96.9 FM; air time is 6:05 pm from the Braves Radio Network.
The Braves opened the current six-game homestand by dropping two of three National League East outings to the Miami Marlins over the weekend. Miami took Sunday’s finale by a final score of 5-4, although the Braves attempted to salvage the series with three runs during the bottom of the ninth inning.
Atlanta is now 7-10 on their ’22 season and tied with the Philadelphia Phillies for third place in the NL East.
In a minor league update, the Rome Braves were also off Monday and will be back at AdventHealth Stadium this evening to open up a six-game homestand against the Greensboro Grasshoppers. First pitch is set for 6 pm. Get tickets and more information at www.romebraves.com.
