Braves look to make it eight in a row behind Charlie Morton

After last night’s rain-soaked drubbing of the Mets, the Braves are winners of seven straight, and look to grab an eighth straight win as Charlie Morton faces off against Taijuan Walker in Game Two of this four-game set between division rivals.

For the Braves, seeking their eighth straight win against Walker is a source of minor amusement, given that the Braves tagged the right-hander for eight runs in an inning of work when these two teams met in Flushing two weeks ago. That game turned into a 9-6 Braves win, their only victory in a disappointing five-game set that saw the Mets pull way ahead in the division race.
