Unknøwn Posted May 23, 2011 Share Posted May 23, 2011 Tuesday, May 24, 7:05 PM ET, PNC ParkJair Jurrjens, RHP (5-1, 1.80)Charlie Morton, RHP (5-1, 2.62)Wednesday, May 25, 12:35 PM ET, PNC ParkMike Minor, LHP (0-1, 10.38)James McDonald, RHP (3-3, 5.51)Game 1 notes:Through no fault of his own, Jurrjens suffered his first loss of the season Thursday in Arizona. Jurrjens gave up two runs on eight hits in 6 2/3 innings, but received no support. He's 1-3 with 3.13 ERA in four career starts vs. PittsburghMorton's former teammates in Atlanta won't recognize the right-hander, who has remade himself since last season. The Braves can expect to see a heavy dose of sinkers from Morton, who is coming off his second career shutout.Game 2 notes:The Braves plan to call up the left-handed Minor from Triple-A Gwinnett for Wednesday's start in place of Tim Hudson. Minor is also scheduled to start against San Diego on May 31, when the Braves will need a fifth starter after a slew of off-days.It took McDonald 30 pitches to become aggressive in his last start. Once he did, he was terrific. He showcased his best fastball of the year in the 6 2/3-inning outing and showed how good he can be when he doesn't nibble.
