Braves beat World Champs

on .

Once again apologies for the sporadic posts from the team. Will is marauding around Northern Europe, Kristi is trying to chalk off her bar exams, and I have been sent to Africa with my company and Internet access is hit and miss, and that is being kind. Anyway, I'm back on the right side of the ocean for a few days so thought I would take over the recap. Until last night when Atlanta trounced the Cards 10-1, the Braves were going through a shaky patch getting swept by one of the worst teams in baseball; no not the Nats, but the Reds. Ugh. It all culminated in a heartbreaking 15 inning 5-4 loss a couple of nights ago to complete the sweep. Julio, Julio, Julio! All hail Julio --† he was back in the line-up last night and the Braves fought back in some style. He had a good game going 1-3 with a walk and getting a couple of RBI. Hudson was on the mound for Atlanta and went a solid 7, if unspectacular, innings striking out three, walking one and giving up one run in the 6th. It was the offense that was on fire. Andruw showed a few more signs of breaking out of his slump by homering with Chipper on and two out to start the scoring. Diaz, with a longball in the 2nd, and Frenchy and Diaz (again) with RBI in the 3rd saw the early lead stretch to 5-0. One inning later it was all over as Maroth had nothing yet was inexplicably allowed to stay in the game. He game up another 5. Andruw and Chipper were 2-3 with a walk, Diaz had 3 hits and needed a triple for the cycle. All in all a nice rebound. James vs. Wainwright tonight -- let's hope for another rout.
