9/3 Game Thread: Hey, We Have An Offense!

on .

Yesterday's game was what you might call a "slugfest." The Braves had 16 runs on 21 hits, including 6 doubles and 2 homers; the Marlins had 14 runs on 15 hits, including 4 doubles, a triple, and 2 homers. Naturally, Cody Ross had 2 of the doubles and Dan Uggla hit one of the homers. I swear, if those two hit against every team the way they hit us, they'd get their face on the cover of a video game. The teams combined to use 15 pitchers, only 5 of whom escaped unscored-upon: Will Ohman (who was terrible, giving up 2 hits and a walk to get one out), Julian Tavarez, Mike Gonzalez, Doug Waechter, and Arthur Rhodes. It was a profoundly silly game. But a win's a win. Today, we'll throw the increasingly ineffective Jorge Campillo against Marlins rookie Chris Volstad, who will reprise a matchup from late July in which Volstad yielded 3 runs in 6 innings and Campillo had his best start of the year, 7 innings of scoreless 2-hit ball. Since then, the two have gone in slightly opposite directions. Volstad has a 3.63 ERA in 7 starts and 39 2/3 IP, and opponents are batting .261/.352/.359 against him; however, in that period he has 28 K against 20 BB, a horrible K/BB ratio that suggests that something's gotta give. Campillo has a 5.31 ERA in 8 starts and 42 1/3 IP and 27 K against 9 BB since then; opponents are batting .336/.377/.555 against him. I doubt this will be a pitchers' duel.
