Game Thread 5/21: Braves Vs. Brewers

New, 345 comments

Over the past 3 games, the Braves have scored 20 runs. To put that in perspective, it took the team an entire week to score 20 (from May 10th against the Cubs to the 17th against the Cardinals, they scored 21 runs over 7 games). Needless to say, the Braves are in the midst of an offensive wellspring (especially Justin Upton, who has just been destroying the baseball during this run), and they hope to continue to drink from the fountain of hits during tonight's contest with the Brewers.

Ervin Santana will be taking the hill for the Braves tonight, and he's hoping to keep the good times rolling from the mound as well, after Julio Teheran pitched a beauty last night. Evan Gattis is still on the shelf with "viral symptoms," so Gerald Laird is still in the lineup. The Brewers have made 2 changes to their lineup, as Mark Reynolds will be replacing Jeff Bianchi at 3rd, while Logan Schafer will be the left fielder for the Brewers tonight.

Here are the full lineups:
