Aaron Harang starts for the Braves, Cole Hamels for the Phillies.

Today's Lineups

PHILADELPHIA PHILLIES ATLANTA BRAVES
Grady Sizemore - CF B.J. Upton - CF
Jimmy Rollins - SS Andrelton Simmons - SS
Chase Utley - 2B Freddie Freeman - 1B
Ryan Howard - 1B Justin Upton - LF
Marlon Byrd - RF Jason Heyward - RF
Cody Asche - 3B Chris Johnson - 3B
Domonic Brown - LF Tommy LaStella - 2B
Cameron Rupp - C Christian Bethancourt - C
Cole Hamels - LHP Aaron Harang - RHP

Here's a nugget I found on Twitter:

All the more reason the Braves should search for a bench bat at the trade deadline.

Luis Avilan was sent to Gwinnett today, and lefty Chasen Shreve was recalled in his spot. In 54.1 innings at Mississippi, Shreve has 76 strikeouts against only nine walks with a 2.48 ERA.
