Braves 5, Padres 4

on .

Jeff Francoeur has suddenly gone from ice cold to red hot. He hit the game winning homer in the Braves last at-bat in the 8th. Ryan Langerhans played a big part in the win, throwing out a runner at 2nd to bail out Hudson and making several sparkling defensive plays at crucial times in addition to his offense. Hudson kept the Braves in the game this time, going 6.2 innings allowing 4 runs on 9 hits, 2 walks, and struck out 3. Still not very good, but it's improved and you'll take it this time around. Remlinger got the last out in the 7th. Villarreal (4-0) pitched a perfect 8th, striking out 2 batters, and was the beneficiary of the game winning homer to pick up his 4th win. The Braves took a 3-1 lead in the 3rd, but the Padres answered with a 3 run inning in the 4th to make it 4-3. After a Betemit RBI groundout tied it the score stayed 4-4 until Francoeur's homer in the 8th. Chris Reitsma pitched around 2 hits in a scoreless 9th for his 4th save in 5 chances. Offensive contributors: Jeff Francoeur was 3-4 with his 3rd homer and scored twice. Edgar Renteria was 2-4 with a homer and scored twice, extending his hitting streak to 11 games. Ryan Langerhans was 1-3 with a double, a walk, an RBI, and scored. Wilson Betemit was 1-3 with a double and an RBI. The Mets are winning, so if that holds up the lead will remain at 4 games. John Smoltz will pitch against Jake Peavy tomorrow night in what looks like on paper to be a pitching duel, but who knows.
