Giants Vs. Braves: Game Three Batter Vs. Pitcher

It's Huddy time!

I just ran into Don Sutton at the Starbucks on Howell Mill, he is super pumped for today's game, and that got me extra super pumped for today's game. I'm ready to get this game on! In the meantime, here are the batter vs. pitcher matchpus for today's starters:

After the jump is today's Braves lineup and the stats for the Giants starters against Hudson.

Today's Braves lineup:

  1. Omar Infante, 3B
  2. Jason Heyward, RF
  3. Derrek Lee, 1B
  4. Brian McCann, C
  5. Matt Diaz, LF
  6. Alex Gonzalez, SS
  7. Brooks Cocnrad, 2B
  8. Rick Ankiel, CF
  9. Tim Hudson, P

While Diaz, the righty, is in there against Sanchez, the lefty, Matty has not had much success against him, striking out 6 of 10 times they have faced each other. Let's hope that trend doesn't continue, as it may have been more appropriate to start McLouth or even Melky.

Hudson has faced the Giants twice this season, and each time he has pitched really well. Billy Wagner blew his first save of the season in a brilliant Hudson start out in San Fran in April, but Wags teamed up with Hudson on August 7th in Atlanta to shutout this Giants team -- a lineup that will be almost identical for today's game.

If he is to shut them out again, he'll have to combine with a different bullpen mate to do so, as the Braves will place Wagner on the disabled list and activate Takashi Saito to take his place.

Huddy has handled most of these guys pretty well. Will Bochy start Rowand?
