2010 - Derek Lowe 2-0 2 2 0 0 0 0 12.0 9 6 6 2 10 6 4.50 1.58

Derek Lowe has two wins, but he certainly went about it the hard way. In his first start of the season, he allowed three runs in the first inning and then two in the third. The offense bailed him out as the Braves exploded for 16 runs against the Cubs on Opening Day. He picked up his second win against the Giants back on Saturday, but walked seven batters. Time for the Rockies to make Lowe see the wrong end of a game.

Kawakami is the Braves' fifth starter, so he didn't make his first start of the season until last Sunday.
