The start of this weekend’s series is a bit unique, considering the Braves and Padres have some unfinished business.

The last time these two teams played, rain ended their series in Atlanta, resulting in a suspended game set to be made up this evening.

The Padres lead 5-4 in the bottom of the 5th inning of a 7-inning game that’s set to start at 5:10 p.m. PST. The Padres will be the visiting team despite playing at the friendly confines of Petco Park.

GB community, this is your game thread for this evening. Enjoy!
