However, Peterson followed with a fly ball over the head of Juan Lagares in center field which gave the Braves the lead.

The second baseman's hitting .275/.349/.347 with one homer and the 23 RBI during the 2015 campaign. He's been dealing with a sore left thumb over the last few weeks and while the injury kept him out of a pair of games over the weekend, it looks like he'll forge on ahead for the time being.
