Game No. 85, Braves @ Rockies: Wood vs. Kendrick

Nolan's ready for tonight's game. Are you?

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Three things to watch for:

1) Troy Tulowitzki enters tonight with a 20 game hitting streak and a 35 game on base streak. Will it continue?

2) Despite low expectations to start the season, the Braves are just a game under .500 and just 4.5 games off the NL East lead just one series away from the All Star Break. Will they inch closer this weekend?

3) Kyle Kendrick gets the start tonight for the Rockies. He's allowed an MLB high 23 home runs on the season. Can he keep the ball in the park?
