Vibe not the same for Braves, Pirates entering series

The Atlanta Braves and the Pittsburgh Pirates are each coming off a four-game home series, but they are in different frames of mind going into their three-game set at PNC Park starting Monday

The Braves (68-55), in a tight battle for first in the National League East, got swept by Colorado, including a 4-2 loss Sunday. They will be trying to erase the weekend.

"We've got to quickly forget and get ready for the next one," Atlanta's Tyler Flowers said. "We've got to move on. We're still right in the thick of it. We can't feel sorry for ourselves or linger on whatever mistakes we made this last series.
