Tuesday’s game: Braves vs. Rockies

Where: Turner Field

When: 7:10 p.m.

TV; radio: SPSO; 680, 93.7, 106.7

Probable starting pitchers: Braves RH Mike Foltynewicz (4-5, 6.06) vs. RH Chad Bettis (5-4, 4.88)

What’s new: Bettis is coming off the disabled list for this start, after missing five weeks with right shoulder inflammation. He pitched five scoreless innings in his final rehabilitation outing for Triple-A Albuquerque. Bettis beat Atlanta on July 12, pitching a quality start (three runs in six innings) in an 11-3 win at Coors Field, despite walking five batters. He struck out eight that day. New Braves young closer Arodys Vizcaino entered this series having allowed just one earned run in 17 2/3 innings, with just seven walks and 18 strikeouts. The Braves scored just 11 runs in four losses to the Rockies in Colorado just before the All-Star break. This is the Braves’ chance to atone for a series that started them on a horrible road slide of 22 losses in 24 road games.
