First place is (potentially) only a few hours away for Atlanta. If they can solve the riddle that is Wade Miley, with some help from Touki Toussaint in stifling the Reds offense, tonight could be a springboard to passing the Phillies. This scenario would also require the Dodgers to win in Philadelphia, but you get the point. Things are better in Atlanta at the moment than they have been all season and gaining yet another important piece in d’Arnaud only adds to the excitement that accompanies a solid stretch of play.
Join us in the comments for discussion and if you plan to attend the game, maybe bring an umbrella just in case.
Thanks for reading and Go Braves!
