The Atlanta Braves are looking to take the series win over the San Diego Padres by winning the final game in their fourth game set. The Braves have won the past two games fairly easily 6-0 and 6-1, and in Thursday's series finale the Braves are sending out Kris Medlen to close out the series.
Medlen has mostly come out of the bullpen this year, but he has started his last three games and has a 2-0 record and given up only three earned runs in 16.2 innings during that stretch. Going back further, Medlen has allowed only four earned runs in 33 innings dating back to July 3. This will be his first appearance against the Padres this year.
The Padres are countering with Jason Marquis who is 6-6 since coming to the Padres in a trade from the Twins. In his most recent start, Marquis pitched a complete game shutout and has won his last two starts.
