Right-handers Joe Blanton (7-6, 4.02) and Jair Jurrjens (9-8, 3.01) are on the bump when the Phillies and Braves begin a three-game series in Atlanta. First pitch is 7:35.
Maintaining a comfortable edge in the division and fresh off a sweep of the Cubs, the Phillies play the first of nine remaining games against a revamped Atlanta team that has been on a roll since the All-Star break. Bobby Cox's boys feature a different lineup from the one the Phils last laid eyes on, including former Pirate Nate McLouth, who's back in the lineup and leading off tonight. Adam LaRoche and Ryan Church are also new additions, batting seventh and eighth respectively. Meanwhile, the Phils go with their standard set. Enjoy the game.
