Horrible, horrible game.
The Braves unraveled in the 6th inning, giving up 7 runs in the frame. Tim Hudson (8-9, 5.25) continues to fall apart, as he was charged 9 runs in 5.2 innings on 10 hits, 3 walks, and 2 strikeouts.
The Braves got 3 unearned runs early thanks to some errors, but then Orlando Hernandez shut them down. It was a tie game going into the 6th inning.
The Braves are now 48-55 and have gone into a losing streak that they cannot afford to have. If the Reds win tonight the Braves will fall to 7.5 games out of the Wild Card.
Offensive contributor: Marcus Giles was 2-3 with 2 RBIs and scored.
Chipper is going on the DL with Tony Pena Jr. being recalled from Richmond to take his place. Aybar will play 3rd base.
Chuck James against Tom Glavine tomorrow.
