Braves' Dickey hopes to keep Mariners in the yard

ATLANTA -- The cozier dimensions were obviously going to make SunTrust Park more hitter-friendly than Turner Field, the Atlanta Braves' former home.

Throw in the uptick on home runs this season, and it often hasn't been the best place to pitch. Already there has been 138 homers hit at the new ballpark compared to 130 all last year at the Ted.

Atlanta knuckleball pitcher R.A. Dickey will try to prevent Seattle from going deep as the Braves conclude their three-game interleague series with the Mariners on Wednesday night.
