Stats Report: Rockies at Braves, Thursday through Sunday

The Rockies did lose two out of three to the Braves in the Rockies home-opening series this year, but the Rockies are 11-6 against the Braves since the start of 2016 with a 3.36 ERA compared to 5.00 for the Braves. The Rockies also have outhomered the Braves 25-14 in the 17 games, and have won the past three series in Atlanta.

The braves are in first place in the NL East, but it's because they have struggled outside the division. They are 40-19 (.678) against NL East teams this year compared to 28-32 (.467) outside the division. The .211 difference in the winning percentage is the largest in MLB.

Jon Gray starts for the Rockies in the opener. He is 2-0 with a 2.29 ERA since being recalled from Triple-A Albuquerque, and the Rockies are 5-0 in his starts.
