Atlanta Braves Vs. Boston Red Sox: Saturday Preview, TV Schedule And More

Jair Jurrjens' return to the big leagues was quite successful on Friday, as the Braves downed the Red Sox 4-1 in the series opener in Fenway. On Saturday, the Braves will send Randall Delgado to the mound, as Atlanta looks to position themselves for a sweep on Sunday.

Delgado will look to replicate his most recent start -- even though he was saddled with a loss. Last Sunday against the Baltimore Orioles, Delgado pitched eight strong innings, giving up just two runs on three hits and a walk, while striking out six, but the Braves fell 2-0. Delgado carries a 4-7 record, 4.12 ERA, .230 BAA and 1.33 WHIP into Saturday's start.

Atlanta's bats will face off against Franklin Morales, who is starting in place of the injured Josh Beckett. It will be just the second start for Morales this year, but his 24th appearance of the season. Through 28.2 innings, Morales has struck out 29 and walked eight, while giving up just 10 runs on 25 hits. In his first start of the year last Sunday, Morales pitched five innings, giving up two runs on four hits, while walking none and striking out nine.

First pitch between the Braves and Red Sox is scheduled for 7:15 at Fenway Park in Boston. Televised coverage can be found on FOX -- which means MLB.tv will be blacked out for those out of market.
