The Atlanta Braves finally snapped an eight-game losing streak to the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday and will go for a series win on Thursday afternoon. Chipper Jones' walk off homer in the 11th inning delivered the win on Wednesday night in a wild back and forth affair that saw the two teams combine for 28 runs.
Randall Delgado takes the mound for the Braves and will be opposed by Philly's Joe Blanton. Delgado didn't make it out of the fifth inning his last time out when he allowed four runs in 4.1 innings. After winning his first two starts, Delgado has been hit hard of late but is looking to bounce back on Thursday.
Blanton has been really good at home but has struggled on the road. He has allowed 10 runs and 18 hits over his last 11 innings on the road.
