Braves Vs. Phillies: Ryan Howard Will Not Start On Saturday

The Braves pitching staff pitched a shutout on Friday and Brian McCann blasted a grand slam in the 5-0 victory. Saturday's lineup will stay exactly the same with Tommy Hanson stepping up on the mound. The Phillies will counter with Joe Blanton and John Mayberry will start at first base while Philadelphia takes their time bringing Ryan Howard back.
