The resurgent Atlanta Braves will return home to Turner field winners of four straight and enjoying a feel of the old days, hosting 1992 World Series opponent Toronto, and retiring John Smoltz's number. The Blue Jays of 2012 seem to have some of that '92 life left in them, winners of three of their last four in a tight AL East race that has them only two games out of first place.

Brandon Beachy and his Major League best ERA (1.87) will take the hill looking to continue the Braves' winning ways. Beachy has allowed two earned runs or less in 10 of his 11 starts and has a 0.95 WHIP.
