This is the first game post of a non-Mets game.
Braves Lineup: Phillies Lineup:
C. Jones Utley
His finest Opening Day outing came in 2005, when he allowed two runs in seven innings against the Giants. While starting the next two openers against the Braves and Brewers, he totaled nine innings, surrendered 17 hits and allowed 13 earned runs.
Looking to halt his Opening Day misfortunes, the 36-year-old hurler said it will be important for him to reign his emotions while pitching on a night when Phillies fans will be getting their first look at their team as defending World Series champions.
This will be Lowe’s third consecutive start against the Phillies. He went 0-1 with a 3.48 ERA in two starts against them during last year’s National League Championship Series. The loss came in Game 1, when he kept the eventual world champions scoreless through five innings and then surrendered sixth-inning homers to Chase Utley and Ryan Howard.
Lowe, who signed a four-year, $60 million contract in January, went 6-1 with a 1.27 ERA in his final 10 starts last year. During this span, which began with an Aug. 11 win in Philadelphia, he limited opponents to a .195 batting average. Lowe has gone 4-0 with a 2.58 ERA during his past six regular season starts against the Phillies. He is 2-0 with a 2.25 ERA in three career starts at Citizens Bank Park.
Today the NL East starts with the Philadelphia Phillies hosting the Atlanta Braves at Citizen’s Bank Park at 8 PM on ESPN2.
