Braves look to avenge sweep by Pirates

ATLANTA -- At least it won't be snowing when the Atlanta Braves and Pittsburgh Pirates meet for the second time this season.

The clubs begin a four-game series on Monday in Atlanta, where temperatures are expected to be in the low 80s. When they met in early April in Pittsburgh, the players were bundled in coats and ski caps to deal with temperatures in the 30s and the occasional slow flurry.

Pittsburgh swept that three-game set, but all the games were close. The Pirates won two times by one run, one in 10 innings, and the other by two runs.
