Paul Maholm and Cole Hamels face off at Turner Field on Sunday as the Braves look to avoid a three-game sweep at the hands of the sub-.500 Phillies. After a five-run output Friday, Atlanta managed just one run Saturday and will need to find a way to score if the ball is not flying out of the park.
Speaking of home runs: all 10 runs Maholm (11-9, 3.44 ERA) has allowed in his first five starts with Atlanta have come by way of the long ball. He allowed just two runs in 6.2 innings his last outing against San Diego.
Hamels (14-6, 2.99 ERA) posted a 1.86 ERA in five August starts and will be working on nine days' rest after missing his last start with stomach issues.
The Braves acquired utility man Jeff Baker in a trade with Detroit on Friday night, and he'll join Peter Moylan, Lyle Overbay, J.C. Boscan and Jose Constanza in Atlanta on September's expanded roster.
