Atlanta Braves @ Arizona Diamondbacks



Thursday, May 28 Chase Field | 9:40 PM ET


Derek Lowe, RHP (http://braves.mlb.com/team/player.jsp?player_id=117955) (6-2, 3.45) Braves (23-23) @ Dan Haren, RHP (http://arizona.diamondbacks.mlb.com/team/player.jsp?player_id=429717) (3-4, 2.57) Diamondbacks (20-27)

Scouting Report:



Braves: In his last start, Lowe continued to eat innings put the Braves in a position to win, going 7 1/3 innings and earning his sixth win of the season during Saturday's victory over the Blue Jays. The Braves' ace pitched his 2,000th career inning during that game, which saw him allow just two runs on five hits. Lowe has now allowed two runs in each of his past three starts. Pitching for the Dodgers, Lowe went 5-1 with a 2.05 ERA against the Diamondbacks last season.



Diamondbacks: Haren had one of his poorest outings his last time out, against his former team in Oakland. The right-hander allowed five runs on nine hits over seven innings. The five runs came courtesy of four Oakland homers, the most Haren had ever given up in a single game. Ironically, Haren said he had very good stuff in the game, but missed his spots, and when he did the A's made him pay. Haren's start before this one lasted just three innings, thanks to a rainout in South Florida. That could have contributed to Haren being somewhat rusty and not sharp against the A's.





Friday, May 29 Chase Field | 9:40 PM ET


Jair Jurrjens, RHP (http://braves.mlb.com/team/player.jsp?roster_year=2009&player_id=457453&c_id=atl) (4-2, 2.07) Braves (23-23) @ Jon Garland, RHP (http://arizona.diamondbacks.mlb.com/team/player.jsp?roster_year=2009&player_id=279782&c_id=ari) (4-3, 4.70) Diamondbacks (20-27)

Scouting Report:



Braves: Although it isn't obvious from his stat line, Jurrjens wasn't as sharp in his Sunday start against the Blue Jays as he has been in recent starts. Jurrjens went six innings and allowed just two earned runs, but surrendered eight hits and two walks on 102 pitches in a no-decision. He had gone at least seven innings in his previous three starts. On the season, Jurrjens has been among the league's best starters. He has allowed more than two runs in just one start and has won his last two decisions. Jurrjens last pitched against the Diamondbacks on August 9 of last year, going six innings and earning a win.



Diamondbacks: Garland did a good imitation of a tight-rope walker in his last start against the A's at Oakland-Alameda Coliseum. The right-hander allowed nine base runners in the first five innings of the outing, yet somehow managed to keep the A's off the board in that span. Garland tempted fate once too often and allowed three runs in the sixth as the A's beat the D-backs, 6-2. All three of the runs came on Landon Powell's first big league homer. Garland said after the game that he simply did not have his good command and the ball did not feel good in his hand. Signed as a free agent to replace Randy Johnson in the rotation, Garland has success when he's able to keep the ball down near the knees. When he gets it up near the belt he runs into trouble.





Saturday, May 30 Chase Field | 4:10 PM ET


Javier Vazquez, RHP (http://braves.mlb.com/team/player.jsp?roster_year=2009&player_id=134320&c_id=atl) (4-4, 3.80) Braves (23-23) @ Doug Davis, LHP (http://arizona.diamondbacks.mlb.com/team/player.jsp?roster_year=2009&player_id=150277&c_id=ari) (2-6, 3.77) Diamondbacks (20-27)

Scouting Report:



Braves: Vazquez has allowed five earned runs or more in three of his past six outings and allowed two earned runs or less in the other three starts that encompass this span. Making his recent inconsistencies more maddening is the fact that the majority of the struggles encountered during each of those three losses were experienced in the fifth or sixth innings. While working seven innings and getting a no-decision during his May 15 start against the Diamondbacks, the 32-year-old right-hander allowed two earned runs and registered 10 strikeouts.



Diamondbacks: Davis has found it hard to get a win lately despite pitching well. In his last outing, he seemed well on his way to a win against the Padres. Davis allowed just one run through seven innings and the D-backs had built a 7-1 lead. However, things fell apart for the D-backs in the eighth as the bullpen imploded and allowed five runs to pull the Padres to within 7-6. One inning later, Chad Qualls blew just his second save of the year and the D-backs wound up losing, 9-7, in 10 innings. Davis is in the final year of a three-year contract extension he signed after coming over in a trade prior to the 2007 season.





Sunday, May 31 Chase Field | 4:10 PM ET


Kris Medlen, RHP (http://braves.mlb.com/team/player.jsp?roster_year=2009&player_id=450665&c_id=atl) (0-2, 9.72) Braves (23-23) @ Max Scherzer, RHP (http://arizona.diamondbacks.mlb.com/team/player.jsp?roster_year=2009&player_id=453286&c_id=ari) (2-3, 3.38) Diamondbacks (20-27)

Scouting Report:



Braves: Medlen's control has hurt him during his first two career starts. After throwing just 43 of 80 pitches for strikes during his Major League debut on May 21, the 23-year-old right-hander returned Tuesday and issued just two walks in 5 1/3 innings against the Giants. The most costly walk was issued to Tim Lincecum with two outs in what would become a four-run second inning. Medlen's inability to retire Lincecum provided further proof that he's allowing his nerves to get the best of him during pressure situations. He ended Tuesday's outing by retiring the final 11 batters he faced.



Diamondbacks: Scherzer had to go 22 games and 13 starts before getting his first big league win, but the right-hander now has two in his last three starts. Last time out against the Padres, he was dominating through seven innings as Arizona built a 6-0 lead. Scherzer tired in the eighth and gave up a homer and single to lead off the frame before being removed. The bullpen struggled, allowing three more runs to score and pull the Padres to within 6-4. Despite a heart-stopping ninth, which he watched from the training room, Scherzer picked up the win as the D-backs held on, 6-5. The right-hander struck out 10 in the game and did not walk a batter. He picked up his first big league win May 16 against the Braves in Atlanta.

Braves task Lowe with being stopper
Atlanta (23-23) at Arizona (20-27), 9:40 p.m. ET



SAN FRANCISCO -- Not long ago, the Braves had every reason to look forward to playing outside of Atlanta. But that was before they followed their first winning homestand of the year by getting swept this week in San Francisco.

All of the momentum the Braves generated last weekend by completing a 6-3 homestand with a three-game series sweep of the Blue Jays was erased when the Giants put them on the wrong end of a three-game sweep.

Still stinging from their recent troubles, the Braves will attempt to reverse the current trend of this seven-game road trip at the expense of the D-backs. When they begin a four-game series in Arizona on Thursday night, they'll at least have the luxury of sending their ace, Derek Lowe, to the mound.

Lowe has won two of the three decisions that he's garnered following a Braves loss this year, and he'll enter this start with the confidence that stems from his recent success against the D-backs.

"Hopefully, we don't put him in a position where he has to dig us out of a losing streak too much," Braves left fielder Matt Diaz said. "But this is one of the reasons that we got him -- to match up against another team's top pitcher."

While scoring just five runs during the first three games of this road trip, the Braves have missed the presence of Yunel Escobar, who has missed five straight games with a strained right hip flexor. Manager Bobby Cox isn't sure when he'll be able to put his 26-year-old shortstop back in the lineup.

Haren is coming off his worst start of the season, having allowed five earned runs and nine hits in seven innings against his former A's teammates Saturday. The veteran right-hander won his first two starts against Atlanta during the 2004 and '05 seasons.

But in his lone start against the Braves last year, Haren was charged with six earned runs and 10 hits in just 5 1/3 innings.

While Haren's most recent experience against the Braves didn't prove to be memorable, Lowe went 3-1 with a 2.05 ERA in five starts against the D-backs last year. Providing further encouragement is the fact that he hasn't allowed a run during his past 14 innings against them.

"It's good to be familiar with the lineup that you're facing," Lowe said. "But I honestly don't think about whether I've had success or not against a particular opponent in the past."

In the six starts that he's made since dropping consecutive decisions in April, Lowe has gone 5-1 with a 3.54 ERA. Making this stretch more impressive is the fact that he's allowed two earned runs or fewer during five of those outings.

Pitching matchup

ATL: RHP Derek Lowe (6-2, 3.45 ERA)
In his last start, Lowe continued to eat innings and put the Braves in a position to win, going 7 1/3 innings and earning his sixth win of the season during Saturday's victory over the Blue Jays. The Braves' ace pitched his 2,000th career inning during that game, which saw him allow just two runs on five hits. Lowe has now allowed two runs in each of his past three starts.

ARI: RHP Dan Haren (3-4, 2.57 ERA)
Haren had one of his poorest outings his last time out, against his former team in Oakland. The right-hander allowed five runs on nine hits over seven innings. The five runs came courtesy of four Oakland homers, the most Haren had ever given up in a single game. Ironically, Haren said he had very good stuff in the game, but missed his spots, and when he did, the A's made him pay. Haren's start before this one lasted just three innings, thanks to a rainout in South Florida. That could have contributed to Haren being somewhat rusty and not sharp against the A's.

Tidbits
Braves left fielder Garret Anderson has batted .367 with two homers in 30 career at-bats against Haren. ... The Braves should be happy that they're scheduled to face just one left-handed pitcher during this four-game series in Arizona. Escobar's availability is questionable and the switch-hitting Chipper Jones is still feeling some discomfort in his sprained right big toe while batting from the right side of the plate. ... Cox needs five more wins to give him 2,000 in his career with the Braves. His career total of 2,250 ranks fourth on the all-time managerial wins list. ... The Braves enter this series having won 12 of the 23 road games that they've played this year. ... The Braves and D-backs split the two games they played in Atlanta earlier this month.braves.com

If Lowe has the sinker working and we give him 3 runs of support tonight, we win.

Is one of these games the makeup for the rainout in Atlanta, or was this a 4 game series all along?

No, from what I've heard, Escobar was in the ORIGINAL lineup, but was a late scratch.

By the way, for anybody that has internet access, but is unable to get in front of a TV to watch the game, I found a website all the Braves games online. I don't know about the quality, I haven't used it yet, but somebody posted it on BN, so I figured I'd pass it along. (ahem...BK?)

I'd trade anyone who has a limited future with us, either due to contract length (Vazquez, Gonzo, Soriano) or crappiness (Francoeur) and compile as much young talent as we can in hopes one of them pays off and becomes a decent major leaguer. Even if it only gets us a couple AA guys, get what you can because there's no way this team competes past July. We have too many scrubs playing key roles. How do you expect to win with GA, Schafer, and Francoeur playing everyday with no power hitters? And with Esco out and Diory playing, 6-9 in the lineup is the easiest quartet of automatic strikeouts I've ever seen. And our cleanup hitter is a catcher who Bobby makes sure to sit once a week and he always seems to pick the same game he sits Chipper and Kotchman and 2 or 3 other starters, I guess to make sure we lose.

We've been "only 3 games out" for 1.5 months now. We can't even stay above .500 for a week. The only reason we're anywhere close to 1st place is because the other teams have played poorly as well. We can't compete scoring 2 runs or less and counting tonight, we've done that 17 times in 47 games. If our pitchers aren't perfect, we lose.

Not only that, we don't have the money or prospects we're willing to give up to go get a decent bat so unless our offense suddenly turns it on (yeah, sure) or our pitchers all turn into Bob Gibson and Sandy Koufax, we're going to be mired in mediocrity again.

Yeah and it's always possible I win the lottery. I don't like giving up either, but when the team already has, :cool:. The fact is you can't play this poorly against bad teams and expect to contend. Besides a handful of players (Esco and Mac come to mind), no one plays with any heart. Down by 3 with 2 outs in the 9th last night, Mac didn't give in and kept fighting. Most of our players go up there, take 3 hacks, and sit back down. When you're short on talent, you usually make up for it in scrappy play. We play like we're hitting 6 HRs a game and always leading 12-0.
