Open Thread 9/12: Braves vs. Brewers

Loading Scores

Paul Maholm vs. Yovani Gallardo

Simmons not in the lineup over concern of a high ankle sprain suffered yesterday. According to DOB, it's not too serious.

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

Maholm has not fared well at all in his career against Milwaukee (3-10, 4.87 ERA), winning only once in his last 18 starts against them. Bourn is hitting just .227 since the All-Star Break and is striking out once every 3.5 at-bats; he certainly needs to fix what's ailing him now.

Let's all wish Freddie a happy 23rd birthday today and hope the Braves can get a win!
