Alex Wood and the Braves face off against the Marlins and Rookie of the Year Jose Fernandez at 7:10 p.m. ET on SportSouth.

For those of us who like round numbers, B.J. Upton is two hits away from 1,000 and a Braves win today would be their 200th against the Marlins.

12 of Alex Wood's 15 starts have been against NL East opponents. He has a 3.10 ERA in those 12 starts; he's given up seven runs in 11.1 innings against the Marlins, but all those came in one start.
