Braves Pound D'Backs in Finale

on .

Update:† Check out talkingchop.com and their black shirts. They are $12 I believe and I just found them hilarious. You only have a short time to buy them though. For the first time in the series the Braves-Diamondbacks game did not go into extras and for the first time the Braves won as they laid a beat-down onto Arizona by a final score of 14-0. The pitching was amazing and so was the offense today. If only the Braves could play like this everyday. Tim Hudson improved to 11-5 with his seven inning performance today. The right-hander threw only 80 pitches, allowing three hits, one walk, and striking out five. Jose Ascanio, who was recalled today to replace Wil Ledezma pitched a scoreless inning of work with a strikeout and a triple that was smoked off the bat of Chris Young mixed in. Bob Wickman finished off the game with a scoreless inning as he seems to be the only Braves reliever that I can't remember pitching in the past couple days. This was great to have a seven inning performance by the starter and no extras. This bullpen is at it's breaking point, pitching tons of innings just about everyday in the past couple games. The offense gave more than a couple runs for Tim Hudson to work with. The game was basically over by the second inning, but they added a eight on for good measure in the next seven innings. The Jones boys lead the charge today. Andruw got the scoring started with a three-run blast off Livan Hernandez in the first and Chipper amassed five RBI's on only one hit in his three plate appearances. Every Braves starter including Tim Hudson ended up with a hit and even Yunel Escobar and Scott Thorman, who came in as replacements both got two hits. Thorman also got a solo homerun to start off the seventh inning. All in all, this is a good way to end a disappointing series. The Braves should be in a good mood as the head back to Atlanta to start their series with the Astros. Chuck James will start the series on Tuesday at 7:35 ET against Chris Sampson.
