Game Thread 5/30: Back at .500

on .

Javier Vazquez (4-4, 3.80 ERA) will take on his old team today, facing LHP Doug Davis (2-6, 3.77  ERA) in Fox's game of the week.  Under the national spotlight, Vazquez hopes to help the Braves crack .500.  After losing three straight in San Francisco, and the first game of the series in Arizona, the Braves are looking to build off of last night's 10-6 win and start a winning streak.

Good news:

Garret Anderson has hit safely in 14 of his last 15 games, posting a .339 batting average over that period.

Brian McCann has hit safely in 16 of 19 games since returning from the disabled list, with an impressive .400 batting average over that span. 

Casey Kotchman had his 13th multihit game last night.  That's not all.  He leads the Braves with 16 doubles, which places him at third in the National League.  He's no slouch on defense either.  Since joining the Braves in July 2008, Kotchman has played 83 errorless games at first base, with 781 total chances.  Only two other first baseman in the game have at least 65 errorless games: Paul Konerko (86 games, 781 total chances) and Chris (68 games, 577 total chances).  Thought that was impressive?  Going back to his time before the Braves, Kotchman has 116 consecutive errorless games with 1,035 total chances!
