Open Thread 4/25: Braves at Dodgers

Brandon Beachy (2 starts, 1-0, 2.25 ERA vs. Dodgers) vs. Ted Lilly (10 starts, 5-2, 3.86 ERA vs. Braves)

  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

Beachy earned his first major-league win against the Dodgers last April, a 10-1 Braves victory; no current Braves hitter has more than four hits against Lilly: Prado (4-for-9) and Uggla (4-for-11, 2 HR) have done the most damage against him; Lilly has allowed only one earned run in his last 22 innings against the Braves, and a team he's pitched for hasn't lost any of his starts against the Braves since June 10, 2007 when he retired only two hitters; he hasn't taken a loss to the Braves since June 11, 2003 while with Oakland. I think it's about time that changed.
