Atlanta Braves Vs. Milwaukee Brewers: Pitching Probables, Game Time And More

The Atlanta Braves (3-4) continue their first homestand of 2012 on Saturday, as they play host to the Milwaukee Brewers (4-4) in the second game of a three-game set.

Atlanta won their home opener on Friday night, behind an offensive outburst from Brian McCann, who recorded four hits, including a home run, in the 10-8 win.

Mike Minor (0-1, 10.80 ERA) will look to quiet Milwaukee's bats down on Saturday -- and rebound from his first start of the year. Minor was ineffective against the New York Mets last week, giving up six runs in five innings on six hits and four walks. Minor did strike out six, but was hung with the loss.

Atlanta's offense will look to continue their success from Friday night against Milwaukee starter Shaun Marcum (1-0, 4.50 ERA). Marcum, who had been dealing with some shoulder issues during the spring, allowed three runs on five hits in six innings of work against the Cubs last week en route to a win. He struck out six and walked none.

First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 p.m. ET. Televised coverage can be found on Fox Sports South as well as Fox Sports Wisconsin.
