Every day is a great day for baseball, so this is no exception

Tonight’s Braves-Rockies game marks the 10th game of the season for Atlanta, and the first one out of the Eastern time zone. Stay up a little later with us as we see if the Braves can duplicate their success after last week’s 5-1 record.

Julio Teheran looks to continue his good work at Coors Field, while Kyle Freeland will do his best to sidestep his previous issues with the heavy hitters in this Braves lineup. The thin Colorado air could be just what Ronald Acuña and Josh Donaldson need to ignite their offensive contributions, and further add to Freeland’s frustrations against the Braves.

If you feel you need additional context for tonight’s game, I present to you supplemental (and fantastic) reading materials:
