Hanson caps first half with 10 victories
PHILADELPHIA -- With Saturday's 6-3 victory over the Phillies, Braves starter Tommy Hanson enters the All-Star break with 10 wins under is belt. He said he feels "really good," especially with his two-seam fastball.

"I'm getting a lot of ground balls when I need them," said Hanson (10-5, 3.71 ERA), one of six National League starters with double-digit victories. "I feel like my command is where I need to be. I feel really good with where I'm at right now. Hopefully after the break, I can really finish strong."

Hanson entered last season's second half with 10 wins before his shoulder started bothering him, and he was shut down on Aug. 6.

"It's nice going into the break with 10 wins," he said. "Hopefully I can finish stronger than last year and keep moving forward. My career high is 11. So hopefully I can get a lot more than that."
