GameThread 4/27: Braves vs. Reds

Kevin C. Cox

Julio Teheran toes the slab as the Braves go for their second series sweep of the season.

The Braves go for the series sweep today with Julio Teheran opposing Reds' ace Johnny Cueto. I mentioned in the series preview that I think Cueto is one of the most underrated starters in the National League. The Braves opted to not go with a lot of reserves today, likely due to the fact that the series was bookended by off days. The only regular out of the lineup is Evan Gattis. With the win last night the Braves have now won seven of eight series this year.

For the Reds, Todd Frazier returns to the field and the Reds are going with their full assortment of regulars as well. This should be a great game of Sunday afternoon baseball.
