Matt Wisler will take the mound for the Atlanta Braves on Thursday as they hope to avoid a sweep at the hands of the Milwaukee Brewers. Atlanta suffered a pair of one run losses in the first two games of the series including a 3-2 loss in 13 innings on Wednesday.

The Braves will look to get their offense back on track against Milwaukee right hander Wily Peralta who is 2-5 with a 6.96 ERA on the season. Peralta has allowed 11 runs over his last 16 1/3 innings but is 1-1 with a 1.23 ERA in four career starts against Atlanta. The Braves bats have been silent in the series and a tired pitching staff could use a bit more offensive support.

Wisler has allowed just six runs in May and has a 1.80 ERA in four starts. He has pitched into the seventh inning is six of last seven outings.
