Good to see Freddie Freeman back in the lineup after playing a few innings last night.

Some interesting notes on Hutchison. He has held opponents to a .189 (14-74) average the first time through the lineup. After that, his opponents average jumps to .295 (38-129) in all other situations.

In four home starts, he has posted a 3-0 record with a 2.42 ERA (26.0IP, 20H, 7ER, HR, 10BB, 22K) and held opponents to a .206 average. On the road, he is 2-2 with a 6.31 ERA (25.2IP, 32H, 18ER, 5HR, 8BB, 19K), with an opponent’s average of .302.

The Jays have lost seven straight contests vs. the Braves, all on the road, dating back to 2009, getting outscored 31-10 over that span.
