Dbacks 13, Braves 9

on .

Another frustrating game for the Braves on this homestand. Utility infielder Damion Easley turned into Stan Musial, hitting 3 home runs with 7 RBIs. Arizona took a 6-0 lead after another short Thomson outing. Thomson (2-5, 4.65) lasted 4.1 innings, and allowed 8 runs on 11 hits, 1 walk, 1 strikeout, and 2 homers allowed. Chad Paronto pitched 1.2 scoreless innings. Villarreal gave up a couple of runs in the 7th to make it 10-2. (Betemit had hit a 2 run homer.) But suddenly, Arizona fell apart in the bottom of the 7th: (Got this from Gameday) Bottom 7TH B:1 S:1 O:0 Brian Jordan singles on a sharp ground ball to center fielder Eric Byrnes. Bottom 7TH B:1 S:1 O:0 Brayan Pena singles on a line drive to left fielder Luis Gonzalez. Brian Jordan to 2nd. Bottom 7TH B:1 S:0 O:1 Matt Diaz flies out to right fielder Jeff DaVanon. Brian Jordan to 3rd. Bottom 7TH B:0 S:0 O:1 Pete Orr reaches on force attempt, fielding error by second baseman Orlando Hudson. Brian Jordan scores. Brayan Pena to 2nd. Bottom 7TH B:2 S:2 O:1 Wilson Betemit singles on a ground ball to right fielder Jeff DaVanon. Brayan Pena to 3rd. Pete Orr to 2nd. Bottom 7TH B:2 S:1 O:1 Chipper Jones reaches on force attempt, fielding error by shortstop Craig Counsell. Brayan Pena scores. Pete Orr to 3rd. Wilson Betemit to 2nd. Bottom 7TH B:0 S:0 O:1 Offensive Substitution: Pinch hitter Adam LaRoche replaces Oscar Villarreal. Bottom 7TH B:1 S:2 O:1 Adam LaRoche doubles (14) on a fly ball to center fielder Eric Byrnes. Pete Orr scores. Wilson Betemit scores. Chipper Jones scores. Bottom 7TH B:0 S:0 O:1 Pitcher Change: Terry Mulholland replaces Brandon Medders, batting 9th. Bottom 7TH B:0 S:0 O:1 Offensive Substitution: Pinch hitter Marcus Giles replaces Ryan Langerhans. Bottom 7TH B:1 S:0 O:1 Marcus Giles homers (3) on a fly ball to center field. Adam LaRoche scores. Bottom 7TH B:0 S:0 O:1 Defensive switch from 3rd to 2nd for Damion Easley. Bottom 7TH B:0 S:0 O:1 Pitcher Change: Jose Valverde replaces Terry Mulholland, batting 7th. Bottom 7TH B:0 S:0 O:1 Defensive Substitution: Chad Tracy replaces third baseman Damion Easley, batting 9th. Bottom 7TH B:0 S:1 O:2 Jeff Francoeur flies out to right fielder Jeff DaVanon. Bottom 7TH B:2 S:2 O:3 Brian Jordan pops out to first baseman Conor Jackson in foul territory. 7 runs scored in the bottom of the 7th, and suddenly it was 10-9. Remlinger pitched a scoreless 8th. Then, in the bottom of the 8th, Brayan Pena hit a leadoff single and Wilson Betemit drew a 2 out walk. With the tying run on 2nd, Chipper hit a fly ball on the first pitch to end the inning. It all was only a tease to the Braves. Ken Ray had his first bad outing against a team other than the Padres all year, and gave up a 3 run homer to Easley. He couldn't finish the inning; Yates had to come on to strike out Craig Counsell. That made it 13-9, and put the game out of reach. Offensive contributors: Wilson Betemit was 3-4 with his 5th homer, walked, had 2 RBIs, and scored twice. Brayan Pena was 2-5 and scored. Marcus Giles hit a pinch-hit 2 run homer. Adam LaRoche hit a pinch-hit 3 run double. Edgar Renteria had a pinch-single and scored. The Mets split their doubleheader. The Phillies lost. Sosa against Miguel Batista tomorrow as the Braves try to avoid a 4 game sweep.
