We had a full slate last night as the Braves and Rockies began a series in Denver, to go along with six minor league games. Also, before all the action got started, Atlanta made a pair of significant moves down on the farm, promoting both Luke Waddell and Vaughn Grissom, with the former heading to Double-A Mississippi and the latter on his way to High-A Rome. Grissom was in the starting lineup for the R-Braves on Thursday night, and even contributed on offense.

Here’s a look at all the Braves action from last night…
