The Atlanta Braves will look to take the three-game series from the Colorado Rockies on Sunday when the two sides meet in the finale at Turner Field in Atlanta.

Julio Teheran heads to the hill for the hosts and the Braves will be looking for a repeat of his last performance when the 23-year old right-hander went the distance in tossing a six-hit, complete-game shut-out against the Milwaukee Brewers in a 5-0 victory. Saturday Michael Cuddyer and Troy Tulowitzki went deep for the Rockies as they got the better of Mike Minor (2-3) in a 3-1 Colorado win. The left-hander allowed all three runs on four hits and three walks while striking out six over 6 1-3 innings as the Braves saw their lead over the Miami Marlins in the National League East Division dwindle to a couple of games.

The Braves areĀ 13.00 to win the World Series and the Rockies can be backed at 36.00.

Monday the slumping Boston Red Sox come into town for a couple of games before Atlanta heads north to Fenway Park as the two sides complete a four-game home and home series.

Saturday Boston’s woes continued as they lost their ninth straight falling 6-5 in 15 innings to the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg. Andrew Miller’s (1-4) throwing error in the bottom of the inning handed the defending World Series champions the defeat to keep the Red Sox firmly in last place in the American League East Division now some seven games behind the Toronto Blue Jays.
