1B Freddie Freeman was the only player in the Braves lineup to reach base twice, drawing a walk in the first inning and picking up a single in the sixth. The 24-year-old slugger is hitting .289 with four home runs and 10 RBIs thus far on the season, with eight walks against just seven strikeouts. His career walk-to-strikeout ratio is below 1:2, at this pace he'll shatter his season marks for walks (66 last year) and fall short of his career high in strikeouts (142 in 2011).

Braves at Phillies, ppd.

Braves at Phillies, ppd.: Tuesday’s second game of a four-game set between Atlanta and host Philadelphia was postponed due to rain. A makeup date has not been announced, although the game will not be made up either Wednesday or Thursday. Atlanta manager Fredi Gonzalez told reporters Tuesday’s scheduled starter, rookie David Hale (0-0, 2.89 ERA), will move to the bullpen and the Braves will pitch Julio Teheran (1-1, 2.84) in his regular turn Wednesday.

Preview: Braves at Phillies

The Atlanta Braves are taking advantage of an unscheduled day off to give rookie David Hale a chance to bolster a shaky bullpen. Julio Teheran will pitch for Atlanta on Wednesday in Philadelphia after Tuesday’s contest between the Braves and Phillies was rained out, allowing Atlanta manager Fredi Gonzalez to slide Hale from his starting spot Tuesday to a bullpen role for the next few days. The Phillies are anxious to return to the field after rallying with a five-run eighth in Monday’s series opener only to lose on Dan Uggla’s ninth-inning grand slam 9-6.

Baseball’s unbalanced schedule places an even higher importance on playing well within one’s division, and the Atlanta Braves are off to a good start again versus their National League East rivals. The Braves play the second of four games at Philadelphia on Tuesday after winning a wild 9-6 series opener a day earlier to improve to 7-3 against East teams, one season after going an NL-best 47-29 en route to the division title.
