Braves Vs. Diamondbacks: Game Time, TV Info And More

With two of the Arizona Diamondbacks top players struggling with injuries, the Atlanta Braves will try to steal a road series against them when they begin a four-game set on Thursday.

After starting off the season 0-4, Atlanta has been on a tear lately, going 7-1 in their last 8 games and moving into a tie for second in the NL East behind the surprising Washington Nationals.

Arizona, meanwhile, has struggled to score runs, mustering only 6 in their last 3 games against the Pittsburgh Pirates, as Chris Young is out with a shoulder injury and Justin Upton is struggling with a thumb.

The pitching match-up on Thursday will be between the Braves Mike Minor and the Diamondbacks Josh Collmenter. Collmenter has pitched only 7 innings in his 2 starts this season, giving up 5 earned runs for an ERA of 12.86; Minor has been solid so far, giving up 6 earned runs in 12.1 innings for an ERA of 4.38.
