|Today's Starting Pitchers|
Game Time: 7:35pm on
On the positive side of yesterday's game, John Smoltz pitched perhaps his best game this season. His 11 strikeouts were a season high, and it was the fourth time he has left after seven innings without having given up a run -- that adds a real positive note to our rotation.
We get to see the defending world champs for the first time this year. They've been doing a bit better of late, but they are still 5 games under .500 on the year and a shadow of the team they were last season, mainly due to a sharp decline in pitching. Perhaps we'll get ourselves a bit more hyped up to play them, being that they are the defending champs. And perhaps we'll see Julio Franco starting at first base against the lefty.
