Game Thread 4/29: Braves At Marlins

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

It's time for the most anticipated rematch since Ali vs. Frazier, Mario vs. Bowser, or Austin vs. The Rock: Wood vs. Fernandez.

It's looking like all eyes will definitely be on the pitching in this one, because the bats probably won't be of prominence for this particular game, at least for the Braves. 4 regulars are missing from tonight's starting lineup for the Braves, as both Uptons, Dan Uggla, and Chris Johnson will all be on the bench tonight as the rest of the team tries to figure out Jose Fernandez. Also, Dave O'Brien reports that David Hale will be available from the bullpen tonight. Could this be a sign of things to come?

Here are the lineups:
