Open Thread 7/2: Braves vs. Marlins

New, 1053 comments

Can you believe it? June is already over! The month of doom for the Braves was anything but that, as the Good Guys went 17-11. That's more like it.

A 3-game series kicks off tonight in Hotlanta with the Florida Marlins. Josh Johnson will be on the mound for the Fish and he's been dominate this year. The Braves will have to continue their patience at the plate if we hope to beat Florida tonight. Getting Johnson out by the 6th or 7th inning would be great. Kris Medlen and his filthy changeup will be on the mound for Atlanta. The Marlins hitters strike out an alarming 22% of the time, so Meds should see some strikeouts tonight.

Lineup:

Prado - 2B
Melky - RF
Chipper - 3B
McCann - C
Glaus - SS...just kidding. 1B
Hinske - LF
Escobar - SS
Blanco - CF
Medlen - P

First pitch is at 7:35EST.

GO BRAVES!
