Battery Power TV: First place Atlanta Braves prepare for first homestand of 2024 season

The first place Atlanta Braves return home after a 3-2 road trip that included a series victory over their NL Rival, the Philadelphia Phillies to open the 2024 season.

Now they'll welcome the Arizona Diamondbacks and New York Mets to Truist Park to begin a seven-game stay in Atlanta. With a dominant showing by the offense, the Braves were able to take 2-of-3 from Philadelphia but were denied a chance for another series win against the Chicago White Sox after the weather turned bad in Wednesday's series finale, forcing a postponement.

In addition to missing that game, the Braves will be missing catcher Sean Murphy for a little while. He was placed on the 10-day IL with a strained left oblique. How fortunate is Atlanta to have a capable catcher like Travis d'Arnaud to step in and take over?

We look back at the key moments and performances from the trip, including the work of the starting rotation, which had four solid outings in the five games. Spencer Strider and Chris Sale were both effective against the Phillies first time out. Max Fried's short start is discussed, along with reasons why he will be extra motivated in his Saturday outing.

Meanwhile, Charlie Morton was sharp and Reynaldo Lopez's Braves debut was his first start since 2022. After firing six strong innings against his old club, Lopez appears to be up to the task of rejoining the rotation.

Grant McAuley and Kris Willis of Battery Power discuss the trip, preview the homestand and the upcoming celebration of the 50th anniversary of Hank Aaron breaking the all-time home run record which will take place before Monday's game against the Mets.
