Open Thread 4/19: Braves at Mets

Ervin Santana is on the hill to try to lock up another series win for the Braves

Brad Barr-USA TODAY Sports

The Braves can avenge their only series loss this evening as Ervin Santana faces Bartolo Colon in game two of a three game set. Santana has been everything the Braves could have hoped for and more in his first two starts and will be facing a struggling offense that could only muster one hit against Aaron Harang last night.

Jason Heyward is back into the lineup tonight against Colon after getting a rest last night as the Braves faced a lefty in Jon Niese. The lineup is back to the standard set, but I expect Chris Johnson will be moving up a spot or two in the near future.

Today's Lineups

Jason Heyward - RF Eric Young Jr. - LF
B.J. Upton - CF Daniel Murphy - 2B
Freddie Freeman - 1B David Wright - 3B
