The Braves will try to snap a two game losing skid tonight when they play game two of their series with Colorado. The Rockies won 5-1 Monday night at Turner Field. Jair Jurrjens (3-2 2.06) will pitch for Atlanta against the Rockies Jason Hammel (0-2 4.62). The game starts shortly after 7:00 tonight.
Atlanta is one game below .500 but just 2 ½ games out of first place in the NL East standings. And it continues to look like Tom Glavine is getting closer to returning to the rotation. It says HERE that his latest mound session went well. If his Triple-A start goes smoothly this weekend you can expect to see the future Hall of Famer back on the mound in the next two weeks.
