Open thread, 7/20, #Braves vs. the Chris Matthewses

The Braves need to win this series, and with Kyle Kendrick on the mound for the Phillies, they should. Kendrick is 1-3 with 6.40 ERA and .300 BA in his past 5 starts and, in his past six starts vs. the Braves, his ERA is 5.50.

Alex Wood has been much better, and the Phils are particularly vulnerable against lefties. So advantage, Braves. The line-up remains the same, except for Gerald Laird catching. Evan Gattis should be back tomorrow, according to reports.

It’s been nice to see big crowds this weekend; with attendance nearing 80,000 for the first two games.
