Jumping in here mid way through the big Philadelphia-Atlanta matchup. Through 5 1/2 innings, the Braves lead 1-0, courtesy of another Andruw Jones RBI.
Cory Lidle is on the hill for the Phillies (instead of the advertised Myers). He is opposed by Jorge Sosa.
Both starters have been steady thus far. Sosa just fought his way out of a 2 out bases loaded jam in the 6th inning, and the Braves are now batting in the home half of the inning.
Chipper Jones is out of the lineup tonight, but his replacement Wilson Betemit already has 2 hits. With Chipper vacating the #3 hole in the lineup, Jeff Francoeur moves up to bat 3rd in front of Andruw.
We will monitor the remainder of the game and bring you updates and analysis at the conclusion.
