The Dodgers have been a pretty big flop to start the season which is surprising when you look at the size of their payroll. They are averaging just 3 runs per game against left handed starters and they have a 6-9 road record combined to a 9-5 home record for Atlanta. The Braves will also face a lefty today and they are averaging 4.6 runs per game with a .337 on base percentage in the 14 games they have went against left handed starters this season.
Atlanta will have Paul Maholm on the mound today. Maholm has a 3.94 ERA with a 1.208 WHIP in his 8 starts but his numbers are significantly better when playing at home. In his home starts his ERA drops to 1.32 and he has a 0.878 WHIP. For the Dodgers Hyun-Jin Ryu will get the start. He is a big of an unknown as he does not have a single game in his career where he has went up against Atlanta.
