Open Thread 7/21: Braves at Nationals, Game One.

Loading Scores

First pitch for the first of two scheduled games today is set for 1:05 PM ET. Braves lineup:

  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. Ben Sheets, P
Some personnel moves: Matt Diaz is on the DL with a right thumb contusion that sounds pretty serious according to Mark Bowman and Dave O' Brien. Jonny Venters was supposed to make a second rehab appearance for Gwinnett, but instead has been activated due to the need for relief help.

Also, Craig Kimbrel and Eric O'Flaherty have both pitched three days in a row, so they are said to be unavailable today. Things could get interesting bullpen wise.
