What time is it? Touki Time.

Today is one of those rare times where every single person in Braves Country can be joyous about the starting pitcher.

Touki Toussaint has been called up to make his inaugural start in what will hopefully be a long and lustrous career. He will face Marlins rookie hurler Pablo Lopez.

The Braves have won 10 of their last 14 games, and have not lost a series since their late July tilt with the Dodgers. With the Phillies on the edge of a series against the red hot Red Sox, and the Braves provided the luxury of a four-game series against the last place Marlins, the results of this week’s games could have a major impact on the rest of the season.

First pitch is scheduled for 1:35pm EST. This is one we’ve all been waiting for, so find yourself a way to watch this afternoon, and keep up with us in the comments. In case you need any additional information for today’s game, we encourage you to click the links below
