I originally planned on attending tonight's game, but a few personal obstacles got in the way unfortunately. Anyway, another great pitching matchup tonight and again, it's Pedro and Smoltz. The two are meeting for the 5th time this season.
ATL: RHP John Smoltz
- 14-6, 2.95 ERA in 2005
- 3-1, 1.61 ERA vs. NYM in 2005
- 14-7, 2.93 ERA in 2005
- 2-2, 2.57 ERA vs. ATL in 2005
Some notes for tonight:
-Chuck James is in uniform and will be available for tonight's game
-Atlanta is 12-4 against New York this season
-Saturday's game is a the nationally televised game of the week on FOX.
-Andruw Jones is the 4th youngest player in history to hit 300 home runs. Only Alex Rodriguez, Ken Griffey Jr. and Jimmy Foxx have reached 300 at an earlier age
