The Braves started the month of June hot - trying to make up ground after a May losing streak that sent them from first to worst in the NL East - but a home sweep by the Yankees in Interleague play has cooled Atlanta, who trail Washington by five games entering Friday.
Baltimore enters Turner Field only a half-game back of New York in the AL East, and winners of five straight. The Braves have taken 19 of 36 games against Baltimore in Interleague play, and Atlanta will face Brian Matusz, coming off of a full week's rest after being injured in batting practice earlier in the week.
