GameThread 6/7: Braves at Diamondbacks

Ervin Santana vs. Wade Miley

Daniel Shirey-USA TODAY Sports

After a nice win the series opener, Ervin Santana will take the hill and try to seal a series victory for the Braves. Opposing Santana will be Wade Miley, who has been extremely inconsistent and overall not very good this season. With the lefty on the mound, the Braves are opting to go with Dan Uggla at second base over Tommy La Stella. B.J. Upton is back in the lineup today, so everything is normal with the lineup aside from La Stella's absence. It will be interesting to see if that is an actual platoon at second base or if this is just Fredi trying to find a spot for Uggla to get some play.
