Dodgers at Braves, 4:10PM PT, TV: SPNLA, MLBN
The Dodgers send Dan Haren to the hill. Last time out he went 7 1/3 innings, holding the Angels to three hits and one run. Before that he’d been on a five-game losing streak. It’s a safe bet that Haren, the Dodgers and the fans all hope the good Haren shows up for tonight’s game.
Haren will face Mike Minor, who’s had a very odd history recently.
He entered this season having posted a 2.90 ERA in his previous 47 starts (going back to July 5, 2012). He produced a 3.07 ERA in his first seven starts this year, but he has a 7.33 ERA in the 10 starts that have followed.
You could say Minor and Haren have had roughly the same kind of season. Minor has had pretty good success against the Dodgers over his four-year career: he’s 1-1 with a 2.32 ERA in five previous starts against them.
Lineup when available.
