Fresh off of two straight off days, the Atlanta Braves will begin a grueling stretch against the two best teams in the National League in the San Francisco Giants and the Los Angeles Dodgers. The Braves will begin a three-game series against the NL West leading Giants Friday at Truist Park before heading out west for seven games which will include three against the Dodgers and a four-game series in Colorado.

The Braves took care of business on their last road trip going 9-0 against the Nationals, Marlins and Orioles. This weekend’s series against San Francisco and the ensuing trip to LA will be somewhat of an opportunity to see how Atlanta measures up. With the Mets and Phillies facing their own issues, just holding their own on this trip would go a long way in securing their fourth straight division title.
