The Atlanta Braves acquired left-handed pitcher Paul Maholm to be a stabilizing force to the back-end of their starting rotation in August and September. Maholm will make his Braves debut on Saturday night against the lowly Astros, who have lost 27 of their last 30 games. That should help him break into his new digs in Atlanta.
First pitch from Turner Field is schedule for 7:10 p.m. this evening. It should be a great night for baseball in Atlanta.
