Dan Haren (9-9, 4.57) vs. Mike Minor (4-7, 5.42).
If Haren is the Dodgers' worst regular starting pitcher right now, that makes him a minor threat. And the Braves are countering with a Minor threat of their own. The Dodgers' first-place lead is at a season-high five games, but even a minor vs. Minor matchup can have implications in a major-league pennant race.
It's been a pleasant surprise seeing the Dodger bats start to wake up lately, with A.J. bopping a home run (and almost a second) in Milwaukee and AGon continuing his RBI madness in yesterday's game. Haren was unexpectedly brilliant in his last start, but here's guessing he'll need lots of run support today.
