Open Thread 4/24: Braves at Dodgers

Mike Minor (1 start, 0-0, 1.50 ERA vs. Dodgers) vs. Aaron Harang (9 starts, 1-3, 4.53 ERA vs. Braves)

Happy 40th Birthday, Chipper!

  1. Michael Bourn - CF
  2. Martin Prado - LF
  3. Freddie Freeman - 1B
  4. Brian McCann - C
  5. Dan Uggla - 2B
  6. Chipper Jones - 3B
  7. Jason Heyward - RF
  8. Tyler Pastornicky - SS

Harang has allowed at least three runs in each of his first three starts, so judging by at Atlanta's recent offensive output, scoring that many shouldn't be much of a problem; Minor has not walked a batter in his last 15 innings; he has made only one other start against the Dodgers: September 3, 2011 in Atlanta; five current Braves have at least 15 AB against Harang and all are hitting over .300 against him: Michael Bourn (8-for-24, 1 double, 1 HR), Brian McCann (11-for-20, 7 doubles, 2 HR), Dan Uggla (9-for-24, 4 doubles, 2 HR), Jack Wilson (16-for-48, 2 doubles, 1 triple) and Chipper Jones (6-for-15, 1 HR); David Ross is 4-for-9 with 3 HR.
