Monday’s game: Braves vs. Rockies

Where: Turner Field

When: 7:10 p.m.

TV/Radio: FSSO/680, 93.7, 106.7

Probable starting pitchers: Braves RH Julio Teheran (8-6, 4.32 ERA) vs. LH Jorge De La Rosa (7-5, 4.50)

What’s new: The Braves slump home after an 0-7 trip to San Diego and Chicago, having lost 22 of their past 24 road games. Those road woes include a four-game sweep in Colorado that started this downward road spiral. The seven-game losing streak is the Braves’ longest of the season. The Braves have been much better at home, going 9-7 at Turner Field since the All-Star break. The Braves will play 25 of their final 38 games at home. Hector Olivera watch begins as the highly-anticipated Cuban third baseman could make his Braves debut this home stand, though there were indications Sunday it might not be until later in the week. Nick Swisher followed up a two-homer game Saturday with a three-hit game Sunday in Chicago, his first three-hit game since May 15 when he got three hits for the Indians against the Texas Rangers.
