Open Thread 9/17: Braves at Mets

New, 897 comments

It's the first game of Bobby Cox's last road trip as Braves manager, and what better way to get it started than to beat the Mets, right? Tommy Hanson takes the hill for the Bravos, hoping that this time he actually gets a little run support. Jon Niese, a lefty, starts for the Mets. Accordingly, Bobby's lineup features 7 right-handed or switch hitters (plus Heyward and McCann). Let's hope that the off-day has the Braves feeling refreshed and rejuvenated for their postseason push.

Here's the lineup; nothing too unusual:

1) Infante, 2B
2) Heyward, RF
3) Prado, 3B
4) Lee, 1B
5) McCann, C
6) Diaz, LF
7) Gonzalez, SS
8) Cabrera, CF
9) Hanson, SP

Enjoy the game, everybody, and go Braves!
