Braves 4, Devil Rays 3 (11 innings)

on .

Braves win! Braves win! There were casualties. John Smoltz had to leave the game in the 2nd inning with a strained groin, which he initially hurt in Chicago in late May. Phil Stockman pulled a hamstring while getting the last out in the 9th. For now, both are listed as day-to-day. In a 2-2 game, Oscar Villarreal came in to pitch with 2 out in the 2nd. The score was the same when he left after the 6th. Does everyone realize that Villarreal's only 24? That's just one year older than Macay McBride. Yates gave up a run in the 7th, but the Braves got it back in the 8th on a sacrifice fly. The bullpen (McBride, Stockman) kept the other team from scoring (!) despite 2 jams and the game went into extras. Francoeur walked to lead off the 11th! Diaz bunted him to 2nd. Betemit was intentionally walked. Francoeur and Betemit then stole 2nd and 3rd on a 2-2 pitch to Pratt. Pratt then got an RBI groundout with Betemit being thrown out at 3rd to give the Braves the lead. Jorge Sosa (2-9, 5.25), who I guess is the closer now with Ray setting up, pitched a scoreless 10th and 11th to pick up the win. Offensive contributors: Andruw Jones was 1-3 with his 18th homer (2 run shot in the 1st), walked, and had 3 RBIs. Marcus Giles was 2-5 and scored twice. Edgar Renteria was 1-2 and walked 3 times. Brian McCann was 1-3 and walked. Lance Cormier against Tim Corcoran tomorrow.
