Game Thread 8/2: Braves vs. Phillies

New, 310 comments

The Braves will try to avoid a ghastly sweep on Sunday in Philly.

Saturday night (hopefully) represented rock bottom for the 2015 Atlanta Braves.

That will be put to the test on Sunday afternoon, as the Braves look avoid what would be a disastrous sweep against the Philadelphia Phillies. In the finale, Julio Teheran takes to the mound, and while he hasn't been himself this season, the "number one starter" should be able to command a mismatch against Philly starter Adam Morgan.

As always, let's try to get this victory together. Stay tuned throughout the evening.
