Mike Minor vs. Roy Halladay

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

The Phillies have lost each of Halladay's two previous starts against the Braves this year, both of them in Atlanta; Halladay has allowed 11 runs on 18 hits in 11.1 innings over those two starts. He's 4-1 with a 2.75 ERA in August and has lasted seven innings in each of his five previous starts this month.

Minor hasn't walked a batter in his last 23.2 innings and has allowed only four runs in 15 innings against the Phillies this year. Since the All-Star Break, opposing hitters are hitting just .219 against him and his 2.45 ERA is eighth in the NL; Minor is one of three Braves in the top 10 in ERA since the Break (Medlen, Maholm).

Let's get a win! GO BRAVES!!
