Game Thread 5/24: Braves vs. Brewers

New, 298 comments

It's time for the final game of what's definitely been an interesting series between the Braves and Brewers

This four-game series has been one of extremes. We saw the Braves win by nine on Thursday, then the Brewers won by eleven on Friday. After those two extremely rough games, we saw that was decided by the finest of margins: An eleventh-inning walk-off victory for the Braves. I've given you that mini-recap to say that we don't really know what to expect in today's game between the Braves and the Brewers.

So, as always,let's hope for the best possible result: A Braves victory! Here are the lineups:
