From Staff Reports
Three of four Atlanta professional sports teams will appear on television in this week (June 1-6).
The Atlanta Braves are in the midst of a seven-game home stand following Monday’s 5-3 win over the Washington Nationals. The Braves sport a 25-26 record and are 3.5 games back of the first-place New York Mets in Major League Baseball’s National League East Division. Atlanta continues a four-game series with the Nats tonight, then host the Los Angeles Dodgers for a three-game set beginning Friday. Atlanta will appear on three networks this week – BSSE, BSS, and FOX.
The Atlanta Hawks moved to a 3-1 lead in their first round NBA Playoff action with a sound 113-96 victory over the New York Knicks on Sunday at State Farm Arena. Atlanta travels to Madison Square Garden to face the Knicks in Game 5 on Wednesday. Game 6 is set for Atlanta on Friday (if necessary) and Game 7 will be in New York on Sunday (if necessary). Those times and TV networks will be announced later if those games are necessary.
Atlanta United got a 2-2 draw versus Nashville SC on Saturday. The draw brings United’s Major League Soccer record to 2-1-4. Their 10 points in the standings is good enough for 8th place in the Eastern Conference. United does not return to MLS action until June 20.
