Braves avoid sweep

on .

Good news Braves fans! Atlanta won 6-2 last night to snap a three game losing skid avoid being swept by one of the hottest teams in baseball. Smoltz was on the mound and was in fantastic form. As discussed below in the bottom of the third he flew past Phil Niekro's franchise strike record (2,912) and in eight innings mowed down 12 batters. Smoltz gave up a run in the first and third but Teixiera answered both time with a couple of two-run dingers. Escobar had a solo shot in the fourth and KJ doubled in Harris for a 6-2 lead.  That was how it stayed until the ninth where the Snakes managed to load the bases against who else but Bob Wickman. He got out of the mini jam unscathed. The Mets won so we're still 5.5 back from the division. We play the Mets soon -- a sweep might be in order.
