  1. Michael Bourn - CF

  5. Matt Diaz - LF

I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if there's any physical retaliation against Melky for his taunting yesterday. Of course, the best type of retaliation for that would be a win.

As for Bumgarner, he's got a 4.43 road ERA and a 4.26 ERA in day games this year and has given up eight runs in his last 12 innings, although seven of them came in one start against the Nats. He's allowed at least one home run in three of his last four starts. Lefties are hitting just .173 against him.

Avoid the sweep! Go Braves!
