The Atlanta Braves hope to continue their recent surge when they open a four-game series Friday night with the Pittsburgh Pirates at Turner Field. Atlanta went 5-2 on its seven-game road trip that was capped off by Wednesday's 4-2 come from behind win in Los Angeles.
The Braves can equal their best home start in Turner Field history tonight with a win tonight over the 8-10 Pirates. Atlanta is 5-1 at home this season and a win would match the 6-1 start that the 1997 team had during Turner Field's inaugural season.
