Open Thread: Atlanta Braves at Colorado Rockies (5/6/12 3:10 PM ET)

Brandon Beachy vs. Juan Nicasio

Braves lineup:

  1. Michael Bourn - CF
  2. Martin Prado - LF
  3. Freddie Freeman - 1B
  4. Dan Uggla - 2B
  5. Jason Heyward - RF
  6. Juan Francisco - 3B
  7. David Ross - C
  8. Tyler Pastornicky - SS
The Braves go for a sweep this afternoon at Coors Field. After last night's signal stealing accusations, we can hope the Braves are fired up and ready to inflict some damage on the young Juan Nicasio. Nicasio holds a 4.40 ERA and is 2-0 in five starts. Brandon Beachy goes for his fifth consecutive quality start today against the Rockies. The only other time he has faced the Denver club, he got shelled. Beachy pitched 4.2 innings and gave up six runs, including two homers, as well as walking five batters. I think that the more relevant trend here, is that Beachy has been pitching tremendously early on in the season.
