Braves 6, Cardinals 3

on .

The Braves hit 4 homers and took the first game of the series. Smoltz (5-5, 3.77) gave up 3 early runs, but settled in after a rain delay to pitch 6 innings and allowed 7 hits, 0 walks, and struck out 7. Paronto pitched a scoreless 7th, Ray pitched a perfect 8th with 2 strikeouts, and Sosa pitched a perfect 9th for the save. After an early 3-0 deficit, the Braves rallied in the bottom of the 3rd. Giles and Renteria led off with back-to-back homers, then the rains came. After they came back, Andruw walked and McCann hit a 2 run homer to take the lead. The Braves got another run that inning, and Langerhans homered in the 7th for an insurance run. Offensive contributors: Brian McCann was 2-4 with his 6th homer, doubled, and had 2 RBIs. Marcus Giles was 2-3 with his 6th homer. Edgar Renteria was 1-3 with his 9th homer and walked. Ryan Langerhans was 1-3 with his 6th homer. Andruw Jones was walked twice and scored. Chipper didn't play again tonight. John Thomson is listed to return tomorrow, he's been recovering slowly. It might be Kevin Barry making the start tomorrow against Chris Carpenter.
