Yesterday was a bit of a bummer. Today, however, is a new day, which means that there's a new opportunity to put yesterday's exciting-yet-disappointing game to bed, as the Braves take on the Cubs for the 2nd game of the final 3-game series before the All-Star Break.
B.J. Upton is back at the top of the lineup today, and that's the only change for the Braves. Well, other than the starting pitcher, who happens to be Mike Minor. The Cubs will be starting Edwin Jackson on the hill for today's contest.
Here are the lineups:
B.J. Upton - CF A. Alcantara - CF A. Simmons - SS Justin Ruggiano - RF Freddie Freeman - 1B Anthony Rizzo - 1B Justin Upton - LF Starlin Castro - SS Jason Heyward - RF W. Castillo - C Chris Johnson - 3B Chris Coghlan - LF Tommy La Stella - 2B Mike Olt - 3B C. Bethancourt - C Darwin Barney - 2B Mike Minor - LHP Edwin Jackson - RHP
And here's data on Edwin Jackson:
