Rockies Vs. Braves: Atlanta Tries To Recover Wednesday

The Atlanta Braves will try to recover Wednesday from an ugly 6-0 Tuesday loss to the Colorado Rockies in the third game of a four-game series at Atlanta's Turner Field.

The Braves will send left-hander Mike Minor to the mound Wednesday night. Minor pitched five innings of four-run ball, but it was the first time since June 30 the 24-year-old gave up four earned runs in a start. In Minor's only other start of the season against the Rockies on May 5, he gave up eight runs (all earned) and 10 hits in five innings. A classic Coors Field shootout, the Braves still won 13-9.

Pitching for Colorado is right-handed Alex White. White, who has given up three or fewer earned runs in seven straight starts, is in his first full season as a major leaguer. He was traded from the Cleveland Indians as part of the Ubaldo Jimenez trade last July, so he's still seeing National League teams for the first time. Wednesday will be his first time facing the Braves.

MLB.com's Tyler Emerick wrote on White's first time throwing against the Braves, who was a diehard Braves fan growing up in North Carolina during Atlanta's run in the 1990s.

From Emerick:

Although White, 24, realizes it'll be his job to sit down the Braves' lineup when he takes the mound, he can't help but be excited about pitching against the likes of veteran third baseman Chipper Jones.

"He's a good hitter, I'm going to have to work hard to get him out," White said. "I've watched him play for a long time, and it'll be fun. It's also one of those things where I have to get the guy out. They're a good team, and that's pretty obvious. I'm going to have to throw well to keep our team in it tomorrow."

First pitch between the Braves and Colorado is at 7:05 p.m. ET on SportSouth in Atlanta.

Rockies Vs Braves Lineups: Tuesday Night Lineups

The Atlanta Braves look to extend their modest winning streak to three games on Tuesday night, when they play host to the Colorado Rockies in the second game of a four-game series.

Both Jim Tracy and Fredi Gonzalez have announced their starting lineups for Tuesday night's contest, and they are as follows:

Colorado Rockies

  1. Dexter Fowler, CF
  2. Josh Rutledge, SS
  3. Carlos Gonzalez, LF
  4. Wilin Rosario, C
  5. Tyler Colvin, RF
  6. Jordan Pacheco, 1B
  7. Chris Nelson, 3B
  8. DJ LeMahieu, 2B
  9. Drew Pomeranz, SP

Atlanta Braves

  1. Michael Bourn, CF
  2. Reed Johnson, LF
  3. Chipper Jones, 3B
  4. Freddie Freeman, 1B
  5. Martin Prado, 2B
  6. Jason Heyward, RF
  7. David Ross, C
  8. Paul Janish, SS
  9. Tommy Hanson, SP

Noticeably absent from the starting lineup is Braves second baseman Dan Uggla, who is no longer an everyday player.

The inconsistent Hanson has a perfect opportunity to rebound against a struggling Rockies lineup that becomes significantly less potent in the bottom half of the order. We'll see if he can right the ship as the Braves look to gain ground on the Nationals in the National League East race and maintain their lead for one of the league's two Wild Card spots.

For all things Atlanta Braves, be sure to head over to Talking Chop and join the discussion.

Brian McCann Injury: Braves Catcher Gets Another Cortisone Shot

Atlanta Braves catcher Brian McCann received a cortisone shot in his injured right shoulder on Saturday night. McCann has been playing through a frayed labrum and cyst, and manager Fredi Gonzalez said he hopes this latest shot helps McCann turn a corner.

"Hopefully this will get him over the hump," said Gonzalez, who said he will try to pick spots to rest McCann going forward. "I think he's a lot closer. His at-bats are good, but it's bothering him. It bites him."

McCann also received a cortisone shot on Aug. 7. He's hitting .228/.300/.402 in 2012 with 18 home runs, 12 doubles and 58 RBI.
