Open Thread 8/6: Braves vs. Giants

New, 1738 comments

Game two of a 4-game series kicks off tonight in rainy Atlanta. It's been raining throughout the day, but it should clear up in time for the retirement of Number 47. The Braves will honor Glavine with a ceremony before the game, and I'd expect 1st pitch around 7:45 or so. The ceremony will be on Peachtree TV, so be sure to check that out.

This is a great day in Braves history, and the game following the celebration shouldn't disappoint either. It'll be Tommy Hanson against Barry Zito, in what should be a pitchers dual similar to last night. Tommy has an ERA of 2.34 in his last 5 starts, but is somehow 0-3. KENSHIN KAWAKAMI, IS THAT YOU?!

Braves Lineup:

Infante - 2B
Heyward - RF
Chipper - 3B
Diaz - LF
McCann - C
Glaus - 1B
Gonzalez - SS
Ankiel - CF
Hanson - P

GO BRAVES, and a big congratulations to Tom Glavine!
