Tommy Hanson vs. Barry Zito

McCann is back in the lineup. I hope his arm doesn't fall off.

  1. Michael Bourn - CF
  2. Reed Johnson - RF
  3. Martin Prado - LF
  4. Chipper Jones - 3B
  5. Freddie Freeman - 1B
  6. Dan Uggla - 2B
  7. Brian McCann - C
  8. Paul Janish - SS
  9. Tommy Hanson - P

Jason Heyward hitting .458 (11-24) with 3 HR in six games at SF, but is 0-6 against Zito. Uggla is 4-34 in his last 10 games, all four hits extra-base hits (2 doubles, 2 HR); he's slugging .369, third-lowest in the NL. Hanson last faced the Giants in April 2011 during Atlanta's three-game sweep; he has lasted seven innings in each of his three previous starts against them.

Stay up late and root for a win! GO BRAVES!
