Braves @ Mets

The Don™

Recommended Posts


Tommy Hanson 8-5, 4.19 ERA

After recent forgettable starts against the White Sox and Tigers in which Hanson surrendered 15 total runs, the right-hander was dynamite in his latest outing against the Marlins. In 6 2/3 innings, the 23-year-old allowed just one earned run and five hits.

R.A. Dickey 6-1, 2.62 ERA

Allowing just two unearned runs, Dickey outpitched Stephen Strasburg on Saturday in Washington, rebounding from his first loss of the season, but was left with a no-decision. Dickey will look for win No. 7 against the Braves, the lone division foe he hasn't seen.


Tim Hudson 8-4, 2.44 ERA

Hudson was recently selected to his third All-Star team and is highly deserving after his successful start in '10. The 34-year-old has allowed just three earned runs in his past two starts combined while completing 15 innings. During that span, he has struck out 13.

Mike Pelfrey 10-3, 3.39 ERA

Since a perceived snub from the NL All-Star team, Pelfrey has allowed 11 runs in 9 1/3 innings while striking out just four over that stretch. Yet Pelfrey is 2-0 with a 1.42 ERA against the Braves this season.


Derek Lowe 9-7, 4.40 ERA

Despite losing two his past three starts, Lowe has been stellar on the mound. The righty has a 2.75 ERA during that time while completing 19 2/3 innings. He even tossed seven innings of scoreless ball against the red-hot White Sox on June 24.

Johan Santana 6-5, 3.15 ERA

Santana went the distance in his last start, striking out five on his way to shutting out the potent Reds offense. He is 1-5 with a 2.25 ERA in nine career starts against the Braves and took a tough loss against them earlier in the year, giving up just two runs in seven IP.

New lineup posted above....Chip is out with back spasms.

Smart move for Infante over Brooks, since Infante is better at getting hits and getting on base than Brooks. plus Brooks likes to swing for power, and Citi Field isn't a great homerun park.

Although why not have Infante #2 and McCann 3, Glaus 4 etc.
