Mike Minor vs. Ryan Vogelsong

Chipper not in the starting lineup. DOB tweeted that Fredi assumed it was a knee problem again, but I guess we'lll know more later.

  1. Michael Bourn - CF
  2. Martin Prado - LF
  3. Jason Heyward - RF
  4. Freddie Freeman - 1B
  5. Brian McCann - C
  6. Dan Uggla - 2B
  7. Juan Francisco - 3B
  8. Paul Janish - SS
  9. Mike Minor - P

Vogelsong has pitched into the seventh inning in 15 of his 16 starts this year, and in only five of those 16 did he allow more than three runs; he has been more hittable in road games, though (46 hits in 47.2 innings, 19 ER). The Giants had to place catcher Hector Sanchez on the DL after he suffered a left knee sprain yesterday; they recalled Eli Whiteside from the minors.

Let's not get Bryce Harper'd again, please...especially by Melky.

Start another winning streak! Go Braves!
