Open thread, 6/18, Braves vs. Danny Heeps
Bad news: Evan Gattis is on the DL with an oblique strain. Tyler Pastornicky, hitting .309 with a .780 OPS, gets the call from Gwinnett.
As for today, getting one game in will be a challenge. Good thing the Bravos are 7-1/2 ahead of the Nats.
Game 1 line-up:
Schafer 8, RJohnson 7, Heyward 9, Freeman 3, CJohnson 5, Laird 2, Uggla 4, Simmons 6, Wood 1
