Mike Minor looks for his first win of the year as he and the Braves take on the Giants. It's about time this offense showed some signs of life!

Today's Lineups

ATLANTA BRAVES SAN FRANCISCO GIANTS
Jason Heyward - RF Angel Pagan - CF
Justin Upton - LF Hunter Pence - RF
Freddie Freeman - 1B Buster Posey - C
Evan Gattis - C Michael Morse - LF
Chris Johnson - 3B Pablo Sandoval - 3B
B.J. Upton - CF Hector Sanchez - 1B
Andrelton Simmons - SS Brandon Hicks - 2B
Mike Minor - LHP Brandon Crawford - SS
Tyler Pastornicky - 2B Ryan Vogelsong - RHP

Vogelsong has had three good starts in a row (20.1 innings, 2 runs), which doesn't bode well for Atlanta's sputtering offense. Per DOB, the Braves have totaled 29 runs in their last 14 games, and are 2-8 in their last 10 against the Giants; they've hit .176 and have been out-homered 14-5.
