The homestand kicked off with a fun first night of baseball between the Atlanta Braves and the defending champion Texas Rangers. It was a back and forth affair early on as each team saw their lefty starter pitch effectively.

However, the Braves came out on top thanks to the night of Travis d'Arnaud, who homered THREE times last night. His last was a grand slam in the bottom of the sixth to break a 2-2 tie. The big bear, Marcell Ozuna also saw his hitting streak reach 17 games thanks to an early single.

The exciting series continues on tonight, as Atlanta looks to clinch a series victory against the reigning champs. Let's check out today's starters and lineups.

Probable starting pitchers

Charlie Morton (1-0, 5.29 ERA) will be making his fourth start of the season tonight. He has pitched 5.2 innings in each of his first three starts in 2024. Last time out, Morton struck out a season high eight, but also surrendered a season high six earned runs against Miami. In his career versus Texas, Morton has a 3-1 record with a 2.48 ERA, and 57 strikeouts.

Nathan Eovaldi (1-1, 2.92 ERA) makes the start for the defending champs. Nasty Nate has been the anchor in the Rangers rotation, and a filthy pitcher for more than a few years now. His last start saw him go six innings, and allow five runs against the Houston Astros. Eovaldi throws his four-seam fastball and splitter about 32% of the time each. He still has good velocity, as his fastball averages a tick under 96 mph.
