Braves at Dodgers, 1:10PM PT, TV: SPNLA, FSSO
The Braves send righthander Matt Wisler (2-5, 3.16 ERA) out to face the Dodgers’ Scott Kazmir (4-3, 4.38 ERA). Wisler’s last two starts were quality ones, but he did give up six runs combined in them. He’s 2-1 with a 1.86 ERA on the road this season. This is his second big league season, both with the Braves. They got him in the Craig Kimbrel/Upton Jr. deal with the Padres last spring.
This is almost unbelievable. Kazmir has made 282 starts in the big leagues and has never faced the Braves. Yes, up until this season he had only pitched in the AL, but there’s been interleague play for quite a while now; you’d think at some point along the way his team would have played Atlanta. Huh.
Lineup when available.

The Dodgers designated Carl Crawford for assignment and brought Austin Barnes up from AAA. Vin speculated on the radio that Crawford might just retire, as poorly as his body has served him over the last few years.
