Open Thread 7/21: Braves vs. Padres

New, 1373 comments

The Braves enter tonight with a 6.5 game lead over the New York Mets and a 7 game lead over the Philadelphia Phillies. With Dan Haren and Jaime Garcia opposing them and Tommy Hanson on the hill for the Braves, the chances of extending the lead look pretty good. Hanson had a rough start against the Brewers but should succeed against a weaker Padre lineup. Garland is coming off of an impressive six inning, three hit, one run appearance against the Diamondbacks. If the Braves are patient at the plate, they should be able to put some runs on the board tonight.
