Game Thread 5/25: Braves vs. Rockies

The Braves send Julio Teheran to the mound against the Rockies at 5:10 p.m. ET in hopes the Braves don't suffer a series loss. The last time the Braves lost a series at home to the Rockies was in 2005, and I'd prefer it stay that way.

Quite frankly, I'd be shocked if the Braves lose today. Morales has not been good this year, and the pitching matchup is grossly mismatched.
