Spencer Strider (3.75 ERA) takes on Alex Cobb (3.62 ERA) in the 1st game of the ATL vs. SFG series. The first pitch is 7:20 EST. It’s alumni weekend so I expect another sellout weekend, as per usual.

Braves Lineup

I was pretty heavily criticized on X/Twitter when I said that Nicky Lopez will likely get the majority of the starts, but thus far, it’s been spot on. While I’d love to see Vaughn Grissom get a few ABs, we are now 3 games in and no sign of Vaughn, even when Lopez hasn’t had a hit in the first 2 games.

Good on Kirby

Kirby Yates was born in Hawaii, spends a lot of his offseason there, and he’s doing good things for his homeland. Give if you can.
