Braves Fall to Fish

on .

Despite a valiant attempt to rally in the eighth, the Braves fell to the Fish today.† The woes started with Kyle Davies struggling on the mound today, and the struggles started immediately.† He gave up hits to three of the first four batters and was already in the hole two runs before the second out of the inning was recorded.† After the game he attributed his performance to mental roadblocks (a post to come later on this).† He lasted only five innings and gave up six hits, five earned runs and two walks, although he racked up six strikeouts.† He was followed by Boyer who went for one inning and recorded a strikeout.† Yates took the next inning, giving up one hit and two walks while recording two strikeouts.† Paronto followed and gave up another three hits and two earned runs.† McBride polished the game off with the final inning, giving up only a walk and recording a strikeout. Francouer, Salty and Thorman had big days at the plate, despite the loss.† Francouer and Salty both†went 2 for 5 and Francouer†had 2 RBIs.† Thorman had a terrific 3 for 4 day.† KJ was 1 for 4 with the other 2 RBIs and Escobar, Diaz and Harris each added a hit.† The most exciting and hopeful part of the game was the eighth inning.† Going into the eighth, the Braves trailed 7-2.† Diaz lead off with a walk.† Salty and Thorman followed with singles (with a Woodward strikeout sandwiched between).† KJ provided the next single, which brought in two runs.† Renteria, unfortunately, popped out.† Yunel Escobar then singled, loading up the bases for Francouer, who already had two RBIs in the game.† Add to that the fact that he leads the league in two-out RBIs and you can see why the Braves faithful got hopeful.† Unfortunately, Frenchy was unable to produce any further runs, grounding out instead. Final Score: Braves 4, Fish 7
