The Braves are now trying to fight off a Cubs team that just happens to be rolling at the moment. The North Siders of Chicago are winners of four straight after sweeping a home series against the Astros, and then taking the series opener against the Braves on Monday night.
Atlanta, still fighting for position in the NL East standings, is trying to avoid dropping another game to the Cubs, which would extend the Braves' current losing streak to three games and make them losers of five out of their last 11 games.
Jair Jurrjens (1-2, 6.07 ERA) will face Chris Volstad (0-6, 7.46 ERA) in the matchup between starting pitchers on Tuesday. Take a look at the game schedule and broadcast information:
Date/Time: Tuesday, July 3, 7:10 p.m. ET
TV: CSN, SPSO
