Open Thread 7/16: Braves vs. Brewers

After winning a sloppy 2-1 game yesterday, the 2nd game of a 4-game series kicks Hotlanta. Rain is in the forecast, but it looks like we should be able to get the game in.

Tommy Hanson will be on the mound for Atlanta and it'll be interesting to see how he and Ryan Braun interact whenever they face off tonight. If you don't remember, Hanson unintentionally stuck Braun in the elbow with a fastball and Braun got all butt-hurt about it. Randy Wolf will pitch for the Brew Crew.

Lineup:

Prado - 2B
Heyward - RF
Chipper - 3B
Glaus - 1B
McCann - C
Diaz - LF
Gonzalez - SS
Cabrera - CF
Hanson - P

Two things to note: Kris Medlen's next start will be pushed back to Saturday, July 24th against Florida. The Braves are being careful with Kris and don't want to blow his arm out. They'll use off-days whenever they can to give Medlen some rest. Don't be surprised to see him pitching occasionally out of the bullpen though.

Also, Happy 50th Birthday to Terry Pendleton. You know the guys in the clubhouse would have something planned, and they sure did. Check it out HERE.

GO BRAVES!
