Open Thread 8/30: Braves vs. Mets

Jair Jurrjens will look to put an awful start in Colorado behind him as he takes on the Mets in tonight's series opener.

The Braves open a four game set with Jair Jurrjens on the mound against Pat Misch. Hopefully the huge win yesterday will spark the Braves who are just 4-6 over their past ten games. Yesterday's win kind of makes up for the terrible loss against the rockies, at least in my book. The Mets offense has not been able to score and they lack a respectable back-end of the bullpen. The Braves would be wise to use their ever-patient approach tonight and get Misch out of the game as quick as possible.

Braves Lineup:

1. Omar Infante 2B
2. Jason Heyward RF
3. Martin Prado 3B
4. Derrek Lee 1B
5. Brian McCann C
6. Matt Diaz LF
7. Alex Gonzalez SS
8. Melky Cabrera CF
9. Jair Jurrjens P
