Of the Dodgers’ starters, only Juan Uribe doesn’t have a hit in his career against Braves left-hander Mike Minor (0-for-5). Collectively, the other seven are batting .333 against Minor, led by A.J. Ellis (4-for-10, home run), Adrian Gonzalez (3-for-9, home run) and Carl Crawford (1-for-2, double, walk).
Conversely, the Braves are no stranger to success against Dodgers right-hander Zack Greinke. Only Evan Gattis (zero career meetings) and Andrelton Simmons (0-for-3) have never gotten a hit off Greinke; Justin Upton (6-for-14, two home runs) and Brian McCann (2-for-6, home run) are batting second and fifth again today. Also lurking on the Atlanta bench: Gerald Laird (6-for-20 career against Greinke) and Jordan Schafer (5-for-11, triple).
