|Today's Starting Pitchers|
Game Time: 7:05pm on
In other news, it seems as though Smoltz's pinky finger is feeling better and the swelling is going down. He's thinking he can pitch on his next scheduled day, but the Braves will probably want to give him ample time to recover - I fear a Plug sighting in his stead. Also, Mike Gonzalez was pulled from the eighth inning of Tuesday night's game as a precautionary measure. Gonzo says he feels fine, but his elbow may be playing tricks on him. If there is anything wrong with his arm, it's a mystery at this point.
Kyle Davies will try to follow up his best start as he takes the mound tonight. The Braves will likely still not have Chipper Jones back, as his bruised palms are taking longer than expected to heal.
