The Braves could only score 1 run all day. The players are just out of gas, after more than 5 months of baseball and 3 doubleheaders in 5 days.
John Smoltz seems to be running out of steam, as he threw 125 pitches in only 6 innings yesterday. He hasn't been quite as effective as of late, and crossed the 200 inning threshold yesterday.
Kyle Davies was better in his 2nd start back than in his 1st start, making it to the 6th inning. He allowed 2 runs in the first 5 innings, then allowed some baserunners to reach in the 6th and they scored off the bullpen.
They'll get to go on vacation earlier this year than usual.
