The Braves slump home after an 0-7 trip to San Diego and Chicago, having lost 22 of their past 24 road games.
They begin a nine-game homestand Monday night with a manageable opponent in the Colorado Rockies, but even those meetings have gone poorly for the free-falling Braves this summer.
The Colorado Rockies are now done with a long home stand — one where they didn’t find a ton of success while facing three good-to-decent teams in the Padres, Nationals, and Mets.
Now, they’ll get the opportunity to go back on the road, facing an ice-cold Atlanta Braves team this week before heading to Pittsburgh this weekend to face a very good ball club that’ll almost surely be in the playoffs come October.
Atlanta (53-71) completed a 0-7 trip with Sunday’s 9-3 loss to the Chicago Cubs, recording its longest overall slide of the season while falling to an MLB-worst 11-29 dating to July 8. The rotation has posted a 7.57 ERA on the skid and the staff as a whole has allowed 18 home runs – nine coming in the last two games at Wrigley Field.
The Rockies (49-73), who swept the Braves in four games July 9-12 in Colorado, are coming off being swept in three games at home by the New York Mets. Sunday’s 5-1 loss was their 11th in 13 games, and another would put them 25 games under .500 for the sixth season in franchise history and third time in the last four years.
The road, however, hasn’t provided a refuge. The Rockies have dropped four straight away games, and their 16-37 record since opening the season with six straight road wins is second-worst in baseball to the Braves (18-47).
