Game 2 of 3 at Petco Park

Good news, everybody (in Professor Farnsworth's voice)! Freddie Freeman will be activated off the DL tomorrow! Hopefully the Braves can put an end to their Petco problems today with Matt Wisler on the mound.

Today's Lineups

ATLANTA BRAVES SAN DIEGO PADRES
Michael Bourn - LF Yangervis Solarte - 3B
Cameron Maybin - CF Cory Spangenberg - 2B
Nick Markakis - RF Matt Kemp - RF
A.J. Pierzynski - C Justin Upton - LF
Adonis Garcia - 3B Yonder Alonso - 1B
Jace Peterson - 2B Derek Norris - C
Joey Terdoslavich - 1B Melvin Upton Jr. - CF
Andrelton Simmons - SS Alexi Amarista - SS
Matt Wisler - RHP James Shields - RHP

Will Venable was in the original starting lineup, but was traded to the Rangers about 90 minutes prior to game time.

This is Wisler's first start against the team that drafted him; Shields faced the Braves on June 9 and allowed 4 ER in 5.1 innings.

The game will be televised on SportSouth and broadcast on radio at AM 680 The Fan and the Braves Radio Network.
