Ian Anderson vs. German Marquez

The Braves face a tough test as German Marquez takes the hill against them for Colorado. Ian Anderson will try to follow up his most recent outing, which was effective in a very unorthodox way, with something a bit more conventionally run prevent-y.

The Mets blew a 9-0 lead and still won in extras today, so just remember, baseball is idiotic. But hopefully the Braves win.

For my sanity, I hope this game features no stupid baserunning decisions and no stupid third-time-through-the-order decisions, at least not for the visitors. If the Braves can avoid those, then I’ll at least be content. Thanks in advance, friends.
