After winning seven of 10 games on an exciting road trip, the Braves come home for a short homestand against the Giants, who have won their past four series to improve to 16-15 for the season.
The homestand is a home series, three games Friday-Saturday. If all goes as planned, the first game will be known as the regular-season debut at SunTrust Park for rookie outfielder Ronald Acuna.
The road trip started with two losses and ended with a three-game sweep of the Mets at Citi Field in New York. After three games at home, the Braves will take to the road for a seven-game trip, including a makeup game at Wrigley Field in the finale.
And by the way, on the road trip the Braves took over first place in the National League East. They lead the Mets by 1-1/2 games.
