Reds 10, Braves 5

on .

Horacio Ramirez had nothing and the Braves had no real chance after the 2nd inning. Horacio (4-3, 4.65) lasted just one inning. He faced 6 batters in the 2nd inning, and all of them got hits. And scored. His final line was 1 inning, 7 runs, 1 walk, 0 strikeouts. His ERA went from 3.47 to 4.65. He's been outstanding in all but 2 starts this year since coming off the DL, and in those 2 starts he's been about as bad as possible. At least he didn't get hurt this time. Villarreal finished the 2nd and pitched the 3rd giving up 2 runs on a homer to Rich Aurilia. Kevin Barry was outstanding, pitching 4 hitless innings with 1 walk and 5 strikeouts. Yates allowed an unearned run in the 8th and Paronto pitched a perfect 9th. Not only can Todd Pratt not hit the broad side of a barn, he also can't catch. Giving McCann a night off, he allowed a passed ball in the first inning that let a run in, and threw the ball away in the 8th attempting to catch Ryan Freel stealing 3rd base, letting in another run. His batting average is .189. But he's a veteran! The Braves got 2 runs in the 4th and 6th, and got the tying run to the on-deck circle in the 7th but never really had a chance. Offensive contributors: Chipper Jones was 2-4 with his 11th homer and had 3 RBIs to extend his hitting streak. Jeff Francoeur was 2-4. Edgar Renteria was 1-3 with a walk and scored twice, extending his hitting streak. Andruw Jones was 1-3 with a walk. Giles had 1 hit to extend his hitting streak. John Smoltz against Aaron Harang tomorrow. Hopefully Smoltz can actually get support from the rest of the team, which would be unusual.
