Paul Maholm vs. Lucas Harrell

  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. Paul Maholm - P

Harrell has Houston's only win in their last 17 games and is the only pitcher on the staff with a winning record. Maholm makes his Atlanta debut today; his 12 wins against the Astros are the most he's earned against any one team. Chipper needs 10 more hits for 2,700 and 34 more to tie Robbie Alomar for fifth place among switch hitters.

Go Braves!!
