Game Thread 5/21: Braves vs. Brewers

New, 630 comments

It's time for the first of four games between the Braves and Brewers.

It's time to get acquainted with our dancing partners for the next four nights: The Milwaukee Brewers. It's been a rough season for the Brew Crew so far, and while we don't like to see people struggle, it'd be nice if the Braves could contribute a bit to Milwaukee's rough start.

The Braves will be facing off against Matt Garza to start off tonight's game. Garza hasn't exactly been lights out for the Brewers this season, but baseball's a weird game and he definitely shouldn't be taken lightly by the Braves. Meanwhile, Julio Teheran will be looking to build upon his solid start against Miami by doing the same against the Brewers. It's time for Julio to get this thing totally back on the right track, right?

Here are the lineups:
