The Atlanta Braves had an off-day on Thursday and will return to action this weekend with a three-game set in Miami, Florida against the Marlins. Mike Foltynewicz is on schedule to serve as the starting pitcher for Atlanta in tonight’s series opener, while Jose Urena will head to the mound for Miami. First pitch is set for 7:10 pm at Marlins Park. The game will be broadcast on WLAQ AM 1410. Air time for pre-game programming is 5:55 pm from the Atlanta Braves Radio Network.
The Braves hope to end a six-game losing streak tonight.

Atlanta is currently in last place of the National League East with 11 wins and 20 losses on the 2017 season. Miami is second to last in the division with 13 wins and 20 losses so far this year.
In a minor league update, the Rome Braves beat the Hagerstown Suns 6-2 on Thursday afternoon in the middle outing of a three-game set at State Mutual Stadium. It was the Braves’ second win in a row over the Suns. The teams will meet in the series finale this evening at 7 pm.
