Kris Medlen vs. Bud Norris

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

Happy Birthday, Eric Hinske! He's 35 today. Norris is 0-7 with a 7.10 ERA in his past 10 starts; Astros scored 2 or fewer runs while he was in 8 of those, so that's encouraging. No Atlanta hitter has hit a home run so far in August; the Braves are 45-18 when they hit at least one homer, 16-27 when they don't.

Go Braves!
