MLB: Houston Astros at Oakland Athletics Robert Edwards-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Braves continue their road trip out West with a three-game set against the Arizona Diamondbacks. The Braves are coming off of a disappointing series in Oakland and enter play with a 33-23 record. They are 18-9 on the road. The D-backs share the same record, with an 18-12 record at Chase Field.

The series opener is set for tonight at 9:40 pm ET with Charlie Morton on the mound. The D-backs will send out righty Merrill Kelly.

The series continues on Saturday with a late-night matchup. Spencer Strider gets the start against righty Ryne Nelson. First pitch is set for 10:10 pm ET.

The series concludes on Sunday with a 4:10 pm ET start time with a battle between Michael Soroka, with his second outing of the season, and righty Zac Gallen.

The Braves look to improve their record on the road against a red-hot Diamondbacks team.
