Game Thread 4/17: Braves vs. Padres

The Braves close things out against San Diego on Monday evening and the home team is in search of a sweep.

Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Braves have enjoyed immense success against the San Diego Padres over the first three games of a four-game set. On Monday evening, Brian Snitker's team has the opportunity to complete a (rare) four-game sweep and Jaime Garcia takes the ball for the home team.

In opposition, the Padres will send Jered Weaver to the bump and it will be interesting to see if Atlanta can take further advantage of the suspect Padres pitching staff. Stay tuned for updates throughout the evening and we will see if the Braves can climb back to the .500 mark after what was unquestionably an ugly start to this season.
