Atlanta announced their first three starting pitchers for the Divisional Series. While the announcement isn’t shocking, it’s the first official confirmation of the information. The Braves will send out Derek Lowe in Game 1, Tommy Hanson in Game 2, and Tim Hudson in Game 3. If the series goes a fourth game, Bobby Cox will go with either Lowe on three days rest or rookie Brandon Beachy. SB Nation Atlanta indicated Cox was leaning towards going with a three man rotation.
