Braves, Marlins meet in surprise first-place battle

It's early, but it's also late, and that sums up this weekend's odd battle for first place in the National League East between the visiting Atlanta Braves and the surprising Miami Marlins.

Friday's game to kick this series off is also this season's home opener for the Marlins. And if you think having an MLB home opener on August 14 is weird, then welcome to 2020.

The Braves, regarded as one of the most talented organizations in baseball, are not immune to oddities. They are just 11-9 so far and on a three-game losing streak.
