Last night was the embodiment of a hot mess: The Braves only got three hits, didn't score, and lost by eleven. That's the last that we'll speak of that debacle. Now, it's time to focus on today's contest, which includes a start from this blog's favorite topic of discussion: Shelby Miller. At the very least, the pitching for Atlanta should be better than it was last night.
Here are the lineups. The Brewers still have the pitcher hitting eighth, so there's that.
|MILWAUKEE BREWERS||ATLANTA BRAVES|
|Carlos Gomez - CF||Jace Peterson - 2B|
|Gerardo Parra - LF||Cameron Maybin - CF|
|Ryan Braun - RF||Freddie Freeman - 1B|
|Adam Lind - 1B||Nick Markakis - RF|
|Aramis Ramirez - 3B||Jonny Gomes - LF|
|Elian Herrera - 2B||A.J. Pierzynski - C|
|Martin Maldonado - C||Alberto Callaspo - 3B|
|Mike Fiers - RHP||Andrelton Simmons - SS|
|Luis Sardinas - SS||Shelby Miller - RHP|
And here's the table on Mike Fiers:
