Kris Medlen (5-1, 3.15 ERA) will start tonight’s series opener for the Braves, and will be opposed by Marlins’ ace Josh Johnson, who is 8-3 with a 1.83 ERA this season.
Tommy Hanson (7-5, 4.50 ERA) will start for Atlanta in the second game of the series on Saturday, and Florida will counter with Anibal Sanchez, who is 7-4 with a 3.18 ERA.
Atlanta ace Tim Hudson (8-3, 2.37 ERA) will start for the Braves in Sunday afternoon’s series finale, while Ricky Nolasco (7-6, 4.84 ERA) will start the finale for the Marlins.
