Cole Hamels looks to rebound from a rough outing against the Blue Jays.  He hasn’t been consistent and right now would be the perfect time for him to get on a roll.  In 12 career starts against the Atlanta Braves, Hamels is 7-3 with a 3.42 ERA.

The 23 year old, Jair Jurrjens has avoided the sophomore slump.  His win-loss record is deceiving as he hasn’t always received run support from his teammates.  In April, Jurrjens earned the win in 5.2 innings against the Phillies.

After an 0-for-5 night, Charlie Manuel says not to worry about Rollins.  He said his timing was off and that “he’ll be OK.”  Rollins needs to turn around his struggles, along with Ryan Madson. In his last six appearances he is 0-2 with a 9.53 ERA (six earned runs in 5.2 innings). He has also blown three games in that span.

The lineup will look a little different with Greg Dobbs starting his second straight game in left field and Paul Bako getting the start.

Your Gameday Beer:The Miller-owned Leinenkugel Brewing Company from Wisconsin serves up today’s beer, Classic Amber Lager. This thick and creamy beer reminds you of Killians Red or even Guinness but has a much maltier taste. The overall taste is average, not too strong so you can pound a few. It is also available in a Light variety so you can pound even more. Have some Latin American food like roasted pork and fried plantains with this one. -By Brian
