Marlins 6, Braves 2

on .

Marlins pitching shut down the Braves for most of the night as the Marlins earned a split of the 4 game series. Roman Colon (0-4) allowed 4 runs in the first 2 innings. At the end of the 1st inning, Colon threw a fastball right down the middle for a "ball." Johnny Estrada was on the way to the dugout before the umpire called it a ball. Estrada then went back into the crouch, and the umpire said something that made Estrada very upset. Estrada jumped up, turned around and hurled some obsenities and was thrown out of the game. Bobby Cox and Mike Hampton were also thrown out after arguing with the umpire. Suspensions and fines are sure to follow. One can only wonder what the umpire could have possibly said to Estrada. Colon didn't pitch badly. He settled down after the 2nd, and pitched shutout ball through the 6th. He gave up 4 runs on 8 hits, didn't walk anyone, and struck out 5. Very reasonable pitching for a spot starter. The Braves offense did absolutely nothing off of Marlins starter Josh Beckett. Brian McCann had the only hit off of Beckett in his 6 innings of work. It was 4-0 going into the 8th, when McCann homered. Ryan Langerhans followed that with a single. Julio Franco doubled to right-center to score Langerhans from 1st to make it a 4-2 game. In a 2 run game in the 9th, the Braves for some reason brought in their worst reliever, Adam Bernero. The Marlins have hammered Bernero in his last 3 appearances against them. Bernero loaded the bases on a hit, a walk, and a HBP. Mike Lowell then singled in 2 runs to put the game away. Offensive contributors: Brian McCann was 2-3 with a homer. Julio Franco hit a pinch-hit RBI double. The Braves now travel to Philadelphia. John Smoltz will try to get the Braves back to their winning ways against struggling Phillie starter Vicente Padilla.
