On a frigid day at Coors Field, the Braves’ bats remained hot Friday, jump-starting a scheduled three-game series, and a scheduled nine-game trip, with an 8-3 victory against the Colorado Rockies.
The temperature was 27 at first pitch Friday. It’s supposed to be about 51 for tonight’s start. Game time is scheduled for 8:10 p.m. EDT.
The Braves (5-2) will send Anibal Sanchez to the mound for his first regular-season start with the Braves, who signed him as a free agent March 16. Sanchez pitched three innings out of the bullpen Monday against the Nationals. He allowed one hit and walked three in three innings. He struck out two and allowed no runs.
