Braves pitchers have yet to be released as of posting time. But at least we know Tim Hudson is getting his second start. Chipper Jones is not making the trip, and neither is Dan Uggla. That means a start at third for Martin Prado, which is important for Prado to get some reps over there and not get cold. Nate McLouth remains in center and Eric Hinske is in left, returning from his calf strain. Ed Lucas and Diory Hernandez are back-to-back in the lineup, which is certainly worth watching for the utility role. It's good to see them both in the order and side by side on the field.

The Braves are getting their first look at Omar Infante in a Florida jersey, hitting second behind Chris Coghlan. The top half of the Marlins order appears to be the regulars, so it's worth watching to see how Hudson fares against them.
