ATLANTA (AP) -- The Braves are enjoying a needed boost from two players recalled from the minors last week.
Atlanta opens a two-game series with Seattle on Tuesday night. The starting second baseman is expected to be Tommy La Stella, who had back-to-back two-hit games in the Braves' weekend sweep at Miami.
The Braves also have a new power arm in their bullpen. Shae Simmons recorded a key out on Saturday and then earned his first save on Sunday when closer Craig Kimbrel needed a rest.
The clutch production from La Stella ad Simmons was especially important after the Braves lost four straight to the Red Sox. The three-game sweep of the Marlins kept the Braves in first place in the NL East before an off day on Monday.
