• Atlanta Braves left-hander Mike Minor outdueled Tim Lincecum Thursday, allowing four hits and striking out nine in six shutout innings. Minor lowered his ERA to 4.26. This was Minor's best outing of the season, but don't get too excited; his season WHIP is 1.52. Fellow rookie Randall Delgado threw six no-hit innings two nights prior. Simply put, use all starting pitchers against the San Francisco Giants.
