Open Thread 5/2: Phillies at Braves

Game two of the series gives us Roy Halladay vs. Tommy Hanson. First pitch is set for 7:10 PM ET. Braves lineup:

  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. Eric Hinske, RF
  8. Tyler Pastornicky, SS
Good to see Chipper back in the lineup. Jason Heyward took some BP today and is hopeful to be back in the lineup tomorrow afternoon.

Entering play today, the Phillies have scored 46.2% of their runs in the 7th inning or later (37 out of 80 total). That mark is the 3rd-most among all NL clubs, trailing WSH (38 runs) and COL (41 runs).

Also, Roy Halladay hasn't allowed a home run in his 37 innings this year, which matches the longest streak in his career to begin a season.
