Braves 3, Phillies 1

on .

Tim Hudson pitched his best game in about 3 months as the Braves evened the series. Hudson (9-10, 4.98) pitched 7 shutout innings, allowing 6 hits, 2 walks, and struck out 8. Baez started the 8th and struck out the first batter, but lost his control and walked the bases loaded. Wayne Franklin allowed a long fly ball that Andruw caught at the wall for a sac fly, then Yates struck out a pinch-hitter to end the inning. Wickman pitched a scoreless 9th for the save. It was a scoreless game into the 5th when Diaz hit a leadoff triple. After Thorman couldn't get him in, Hudson put down a squeeze to score him to make it 1-0. The Braves added 2 runs in the 7th when Francoeur was HBP, McCann doubled, Diaz sac flied, and Thorman doubled. Offensive contributors: Brian McCann was 2-3 with a double and scored. Marcus Giles was 2-4. Horacio Ramirez is probably going to miss the rest of the season with a partially torn tendon in his finger. (It's entirely possible his Braves career is over as he's going to start costing more in arbitration. The Braves will have to decide if they want an average but injury plagued pitcher for like 4 million.) I guess Cormier will come back to take his place as a 4th starter for now. Davies is rehabbing but isn't quite there yet, and someone else might have to be promoted to make a start when the Braves need a 5th starter. I guess Shiell and Lerew are candidates. Chuck James against Randy Wolf tomorrow, who is coming back from Tommy John surgery.
