The monkey is off the back of the sliding Braves - they broke an eight-game losing streak with a 5-4 win over St. Louis on Tuesday night - and now Atlanta will try and begin to dig themselves out of last place in the NL East by taking the rubber match against the Cardinals on Wednesday. Veterans Tim Hudson and Kyle Lohse will square off, with current St. Louis hitters enjoying a .329 career average against Hudson.
Freddie Freeman will try out specialty goggles on Wednesday, after missing several games with dry eyes that made it impossible for the first baseman to wear contacts.
