The Atlanta Braves are like many around the country who struggle getting the work week started on Monday. Atlanta's series opening 3-1 loss Monday night drops Atlanta's record to 0-6 on Monday's this season. The Braves are 22-8 on all other days. Atlanta's offense has been a present surprise this season but the Braves have totaled just 11 runs in six Monday games this season.
While Atlanta has played the fewest home games of anyone in the National League they haven't exactly been playing their best when at Turner Field. The Braves have dropped five of their last seven at Turner Field and are 8-6 on the season. Contrast that with their 14-8 road record. Atlanta has three games remaining on their current four-game home stand before they head back out on the road for seven straight.
