It was a busy Wednesday in Atlanta.

MLS All Star game takes place

In front of a jam-packed Mercedes Benz Stadium crowed, Juventus beat the MLS All Stars via penalty kicks after the game was tied 1-1 at the end of regulation.

The friendly confines of Mercedes Benz were once again good to Josef Martinez, who scored in the 26th minute to even up the score after Andrea Favilli had given Juventus a 1-0 lead.

Atlanta United will be back in action on Saturday at home against Toronto.

Braves rained out

The Braves’ final game of their series against the Marlins was rained out on Wednesday, with a rescheduled game coming as part of a double-header on August 13th.

Coming up tonight

The Braves will be on the road to take on the New York Mets tonight. First pitch is at 7:10 ET.
