Game Thread 4/28: Braves vs. Brewers

Happy Bartlanta Day!

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Braves are 8-12 through the first 20 games of the season, but they will look to close out April on a strong note as they open up a series with the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park on Friday.

The Braves just completed their second sweep of the season, albeit just a two-game series with the New York Mets due to Tuesday's rainout.

Bartolo Colon, who is 1-2 with a 4.50 ERA, will make his fifth start of the season tonight. Jace Peterson will get the start at second base as Brandon Phillips continues to recover from a groin strain that occurred in Wednesday's game against the Mets.
