Game Thread 9/8: Braves at Phillies

Can the Braves win back-to-back games? We'll see tonight.

It was weird, but the Atlanta Braves won on Monday.

Of course, beating the Philadelphia Phillies (even in their own building) is nothing to be terribly excited about, but after 12 straight losses, it was fun to see a positive result. Now, the same two teams will be back at it on Tuesday, and with Philly holding a two-game "edge" in the race for the number one pick, it will be interesting to see how this one plays out at Citizens Bank Park.

Let's do this together, and congratulations to Ryan Weber on his MLB debut.
