The Atlanta Braves have lost 11 consecutive games at home and are 1-16 overall at Turner Field this season, which is dreadful.
The Braves will send Williams Perez to the mound tonight to oppose young Jerad Eickhoff. Perez is up from Gwinnett after Atlanta sent scheduled starter Jhoulys Chacin to the Los Angeles Angels for minor league pitcher Adam McCreery on Wednesday.
The present is awful. The future is bright though, we promise. Join us in tonight's game thread to vent your frustrations (appropriately, of course)!
