Gameday Thread, #59: 6/8 vs. Braves


Kris Medlen
RHP, 3-1, 2.79


Edwin Jackson
RHP, (3-6, 5.33

Another nine shutout innings from Edwin Jackson tonight? We can but hope so - and, ideally, with a little bit more in the way of run support from the offense this time. If Jackson throws more than 103 pitches tonight, he'll probably move in to the top five for pitches thrown this season in the NL - he's currently ranked eighteenth, but only two of those ahead of him (Yovani Gallardo and Chris Carpenter) are starting tonight, so he's certain to zoom up a few spots. Currently, Dan Haren leads the way, with 86 more than the #2, Ubaldo Jimenez.

Line-up and other stuff after the jump.

1. Kelly Johnson 2B .267
2. Conor Jackson LF .242
3. Stephen Drew SS .289
4. Justin Upton RF .245
5. Adam LaRoche 1B .255
6. Mark Reynolds 3B .215
Chris Young CF .270
8. John Hester C .171
9. Edwin Jackson P .160

Let's see if Jackson can keep his ERA moving in the right direction, and hopefully there will be more tacos available, courtesy of the Diamondbacks, tomorrow.
