Happ vs. Hudson; Braves vs. Phillies; Hot vs. Hot


Just a quick set-up for tonight's game before I run down to the clubhouse. . .

The Braves enter having won seven straight games, the longest streak in the majors. The Phillies enter having won five straight, the second-longest straight in the majors.

Tim Hudson is making his fourth start of the season since returning from elbow surgery.

J.A. Happ is making his first start since missing two starts with a rib cage injury.

Atlanta enters the night having won seven straight and eight of last nine since losing five straight (two to FLA, three to CIn) from Sept. 2-6

During seven-game win streak, Braves have scored 45 runs (6.5 r/g), 82 hits (11.7/g) against Houston, St. Louis and the Mets

The Phillies over last 7 (6-1): 34 runs (4.9 r/g) with 61 hits (8.7/g)

Phillies pitchers over last seven games: 2.71 ERA, 8.7 h/g, 46 SO, 13 BB, 1 HBP, 16 XBH
Braves pitchers over last seven games: 2.71 ERA, 9.4 h/g, 49 SO, 20 BB, 1 HBP, 11 XBH

Tonight will be an interesting start to a big series. More to come.
