Tommy La Stella makes his debut in Boston

Loading Scores

The day is here. Finally the Braves have called up Tommy La Stella and he is starting at second base and batting eighth against the Red Sox this evening.

On the hill for the Braves is Gavin Floyd and he will oppose John Lackey. The Braves have gotten off to good starts the past two games against the Red Sox, but both the offense and pitching staffs struggled late in games as hey lost the home portion of the home-and-home series. If the Braves want to avoid a series loss, they need to win today. Let's hope they can make La Stella's debut a memorable one with a victory.
