Kris Medlen vs. Jason Marquis

  1. Michael Bourn - CF
  2. Martin Prado - LF
  3. Jason Heyward - RF
  4. Chipper Jones - 3B
  5. Freddie Freeman - 1B
  6. Dan Uggla - 2B
  7. Brian McCann - C
  8. Paul Janish - SS
  9. Kris Medlen - P

Medlen looks to keep up his good work, but Marquis against the Braves is 3-0 at Turner Field with a 2.61 ERA; hopefully, that will change. Chipper is two hits away from 2,700, and I think it would be appropriate for him to reach that mark on Chipper Jones bobblehead day; he owns Marquis (6-14, 3 HR), so him getting those two hits is a real possibility.

Let's take the series!
