The scheduled starters for game one of this NL east divisional encounter will be Tommy Hanson from Atlanta squaring off with Steven Strassburg of the Washington Nationals. Hanson sits 10-5 on the season with an ERA of 4.02. In his first start following the All Star break Hanson was hit hard as he allowed six earned runs and 9 hits in 5 1/3rd innings to the Mets on July 14th. Strassburg is 10-4 on the year with an ERA of 2.66. He came off the All Star break in style by allowing Miami 0 earned runs and six hits over six innings on July 15th in a 4-0 win. Strassburg is 2-0 in his career versus the Mets with an ERA of 1.64. The Nationals strikeout pitcher has allowed two earned runs or less in six of his past eight starts.

Tim Lincecum takes the hill for the San Francisco Giants in their series opener as he will oppose Vince Worley from the home standing Philadelphia Phillies. Lincecum has been battling velocity problems since spring training as word spread quickly about concern for the right hander. Lincecum has struggled mightily in 2012 as the SF hurler has a record of 3-10 with an ERA of 5.93. After allowing 13 earned runs in 6 2/3rd innings total in starts against Pittsburgh and Washington Lincecum shined on July 14th by allowing no earned runs and five hits with 11 strikeouts against Houston in eight innings. The Giants manager Bruce Bochy was threatening to skip this start for Lincecum if he struggled against Houston. Worley is 5-5 on the year with an ERA of 3.47. Over his past nine games he had one really bad start where he allowed six earned runs over four innings in a loss at the Mets on July 3rd. In eight of his past nine starts Worley has allowed three earned runs or less to the competition.
