Everybody Loves Interleague: Braves at Yankees Open Thread

Atlanta heads north to the Bronx tonight to take on the Yankees, winners of 9 in a row. The Yankees are coming off 3 straight 3 game sweeps of the Mets, Braves, and Nationals, and may be the hottest team in baseball. At least they beat the Nats! Let's thank them by snapping their winning streak tonight :)

Tonight's pitching matchup is CC Sabathia vs. Mike Minor

2012 - CC Sabathia 8-3 3.70 1.27 92 26

2012 - Mike Minor 3-4 6.01 1.42 59 27

Braves Lineup:

  1. Michael Bourn, CF
  2. Martin Prado, 1B
  3. Brian McCann, DH
  4. Dan Uggla, 2B
  5. Matt Diaz, LF
  6. Chipper Jones, 3B
  7. Jason Heyward, RF
  8. Andrelton Simmons, SS
  9. David Ross, C

Big Mac is the DH tonight, while Ross does the catching and bats 9th. Martin Prado plays first again, but hopefully Freddie will be back by tomorrow. Matty D starts vs. a lefty and hits 5th.

Brandon Beachy had his MRI today, but won't get the results until tomorrow. Let's all hope for the best.
