Red Sox at Braves Match-Ups, 6/28

06.28.09 at 10:34 am ET

In 2005, Brad Penny bet a batboy that he could not down a gallon of milk in an hour. The batboy succeeded in doing so, but threw it up. When the team found out, they suspended the batboy. Penny was quoted as saying “It’s kind of ridiculous that you get a 10-game suspension for steroids and a six-game suspension for milk.”

Anyway, that said here is what today’s pitchers in the Red Sox/Braves tilt have done against their respective opponents:

Brad Penny vs. the Braves

Chipper Jones – .310/.375/.452 (1 HR 10 RBI, 3 SO)      

Nate McLouth – .200/.200/.300 (0 HR 0 RBI, 1 SO)

Garret Anderson – .222/.222/.333 (0 HR 1 RBI, 1 SO)

Dave Ross – .111/.111/.222 (0 HR 0 RBI, 3 SO)

Jeff Francoeur – .286/.286/.714 (1 HR 2 RBI, 1 SO

Tommy Hanson, a native of Tulsa, Oklahoma, made his major league debut earlier this month on June 7th and has since taken no time to prove that he is going to be around for awhile. Through his first four starts in the big leagues, Hanson is 3-0 with an ERA of 3.13. In his last two starts against Cincinnati and the Yankees, he has not allowed a run.

Before he was called up, Hanson was leading the international league in ERA by just .25 over Clay Buchholz.
