Game Thread 8/28: Braves vs. Yankees

New, 152 comments

Atlanta and New York kick off the first game of a three-game set with Williams Perez and Masahiro Tanaka on the mound.

The Atlanta Braves and New York Yankees begin their three-game series tonight, and with that also comes the familiar face of Brian McCann. I failed you in the series preview, when I didn't mention McCann at all, but it will be nice to see Big Mac in Turner Field once again, even if he is in pinstripes. And beardless.
