Matt Wisler takes the ball in game two against the Boston Red Sox. Join us for all the action!

The Atlanta Braves are looking to get out of a six-game losing streak tonight as Matt Wisler heads to the mound to square off against David Price. Price's ERA might suggest that the Braves have a decent shot at scoring some runs tonight, but to make that argument you'd have to use the same sort of logic that leads to a conclusion that Nick Markakis > Jason Heyward.

We don't have to get into that debate though — this thread is for tonight's matchup, where I invite you all to enjoy Wisler's slider and see if he starts to use his reconstructed changeup a bit more (he's only used the pitch 13 times this season according to Brooks Baseball).
