Since coming out of the All-Star break, the Atlanta Braves have been very underwhelming so far in the second half of the season. Following a five-game road trip, the Braves are 3-7 in their last ten games, following a two-game sweep by the Red Sox in Boston. The team still has a 10-game lead in the NL East standings over the Philadelphia Phillies but the Braves need a find a way to get their momentum back.

The Braves return home to Truist Park this weekend as they begin a three-game series with the Milwaukee Brewers. The Braves have just recently played the Brewers at American Family Field in Milwaukee, taking two of the three games in that series. Let's see how the Brewers fare in Truist Park this weekend.
