Marlins 2, Braves 1

on .

The Braves offense was shut down by Annibal Sanchez as they dropped the first game of the series. Chuck James (4-1, 3.53) pitched well, but for the first time didn't get any run support. He went 7 innings and allowed 2 runs on 7 hits, 2 homers, 1 walk, and struck out 6. Cody Ross was his nemesis, accounting for both runs with solo homers. James got into jams in the same inning after both home runs, but pitched out of them with no damage. Yates pitched a scoreless 8th and Ray pitched a scoreless 9th. The Braves scored their only run in the 6th, when Ryan Langerhans led off with a double, was bunted to 3rd by the pitcher, and scored on a Giles base hit. Langerhans made a spectacular play in the 9th inning to rob a solo homer from Josh Willingham. He had a good game filling in for Andruw in center. But the Braves missed the Jones boys offense tonight, as they were both once again out of the starting lineup, although Andruw did pinch-hit late in the game (but struck out). Offensive contributors: Ryan Langerhans was 2-3 with a double and scored. Marcus Giles was 2-4 with an RBI. Edgar Renteria was 2-4. Adam LaRoche was ejected for arguing balls and strikes after he struck out in the middle innings. John Smoltz will pitch tomorrow against Josh Johnson in what I think is a rematch from earlier this season.
