Coming off a rare series loss to the scorching hot Chicago Cubs, the Atlanta Braves will look to turn around their roadtrip in Pittsburgh. Unfortunately, it seems as the weather may have other plans for the first of four games between the Braves and the Pirates.
Hopefully, the delay is not too long but the before hand let’s catch you up on the action. Spencer Strider had his worst outing of the season as he failed to get out of a troublesome third inning. The Pirates tagged Strider for six runs in the inning as Strider fought command issues.
Thankfully the Braves answered quickly with four runs of their own, started by an Ozzie Albies solo shot. Each team tacked on a run since and we currently sit at 7-5 Pirates lead after five innings of baseball.
Tonight’s game will resume at 10 PM EST.

In some news you may not have heard yet, the Braves announced a certain hall of famer will be joining their broadcast both for two upcoming series.
