ATLANTA - In these parts they call this time of the year Choptober.

The Turner Field faithful brought out the red rubber tomahawks and took part in the by-now lame Indian chant prior to the first pitch being thrown by retired Braves hero Chipper Jones.

Atlanta starting pitcher Kris Medlen then went out and struck out the side.

What better start could the Braves have asked for?

Unfortunately for the home team that would be the night's high point.
