Brewers at Braves Opener-Chipper Jones Back

 The Milwaukee Brewers take on the Atlanta Braves in their home opener at Turner Field tonight at 6:35c.t. Randy Wolf will pitch for the Brewers, with the hot hitting George Kottaras, Wolf's personal catcher behind the plate for the Brewers. The Braves record going into tonight's game is 2-4 after losing the first four games, have bounced back with two wins. Brewers shortstop Alex Gonzalez will be making his first start against his old team. Milwaukee is 4-3 one game behind the St.Louis Cardinals who are 5-2 and playing the Chicago Cubs, that score is Cubs 4, Cardinals 0, in the middle of the second inning.
  Chipper Jones is back in the lineup for the Braves who are actually on a winning streak, and now it's time to go home.  The Braves have won their last two games against the Astros, calming their grumbling fan base just a bit before they headed home. "Road trips get longer and longer," Jones said. "Especially when you lose the first four, you miss home at lot. It will be good to get back to Atlanta and play in front of the home fans, who we haven't seen in a long time. The home opener is always a special occasion no matter when it comes." This will be Jones' last opening day in Atlanta."

Here is the Brewers starting lineup.
2B Rickie Weeks
CF Nyjer Morgan
LF Ryan Braun
3B Aramis Ramirez
RF Corey Hart
1B Mat Gamel
SS Alex Gonzalez
C George Kottaras
LHP Randy Wolf
