Braves take 2 of 3 from Mets

on .

Game 1: Braves 12, Mets 0 The Braves knocked around Oliver Perez while John Smoltz shut down the Mets. Smoltz (15-9, 3.58) went 8 shutout innings and allowed 6 hits, 2 walks, and struck out 6. It's his 6th 15 win season, and he'll end up among the league leaders in most major categories. Andruw Jones led the offense and hit his 40th homer of the season, giving him 91 homers over the last 2 years. Game 2: Braves 13, Mets 1 Pedro Martinez got roughed up, and will not be able to start again in 2006 because of injuries. Tim Hudson (13-12, 4.86) was the beneficiary of the offense, and pitched 6 innings allowing 1 run on 4 hits, 3 walks, and 2 strikeouts. He avoided the first losing season of his career. Brian McCann had a big game with 3 hits, including his 24th homer of the season and 2 doubles in the game. Jeff Francoeur homered twice, his 27th and 28th of the year. Chipper also homered, his 25th of the year. Game 3: Mets 7, Braves 4 Kyle Davies continues to struggle mightily and the Braves dropped the rubber game of the series. Davies (3-7, 8.38) couldn't get out of the 4th, allowing 5 runs (4 earned) on 5 hits, 6 walks, and 1 strikeout. Tony Pena Jr., of all people, led the Braves offense with 3 hits, and Andruw added his 41st homer. The Braves will now host Houston in the last series of the year. The Astros are on a 9 game winning streak and are a half game out of the Central lead as the Cardinals are struggling. I have no idea what the pitching matchups will be since Houston might want pitchers to go on short rest, but our starters should be James, Cormier, and Barry.
