Monday’s game: Braves vs. Dodgers

Where: Turner Field

When: 7:10 p.m.

TV/Radio: SPSO/680, 93.7, 106.7

Probable starting pitchers: Braves RH Matt Wisler (3-1, 3.10 ERA) vs. RH Brandon Beachy (0-1, 6.75)

What’s new: The Braves open this series against a familiar face in Beachy, who is making his second start back from a second Tommy John surgery, and they don’t have to deal with All-Star pitchers Zack Grienke (9-2 with a 1.30 ERA) — he of the 43 2/3 straight scoreless streak — and Clayton Kershaw (7-6, 2.68) this series. Juan Uribe will be eager for a shot at his former team after going 0-for-3 against the Dodgers on May 27 in his first game after the Dodgers traded him to Atlanta. Uribe was just 2-for-21 (.105) in his previous six games entering Sunday, but he was hitting .278 with seven of his eight home runs this year with the Braves.
