Smoltz Shuts Out Dodgers

on .

In his usual fine form, John Smoltz racked up his fourth win of the season against the Dodgers tonight.† His seven scoreless innings tonight added to his last effort to make his last thirteen innings pitched scoreless.† Smoltz gave up only six hits and two walks and registered six strikeouts.† The win gave him 197 lifetime wins, moving him ever closer to the 200 win mark.† Watch for him to pitch again on Wednesday against former teammate Greg Maddux. The offense provided for Smoltz in the win, scoring four runs.† Brian McCann was back in the lineup after taking Wednesday off for a sore ring finger.† Before the game he talked about how it still felt funny to hold the bat, but there were no signs of his ailment when he came up to the plate in the bottom of the first inning.† With two outs, he punched a two-run double into left field.† The two out heroics didn't stop there.† Francouer lined into shallow center in the fifth to score two runs as the ball hit off the diving Juan Pierre's glove.† KJ, Renteria and Orr each added hits to the game and Willie Harris went 2 for 4.† KJ, Chipper and McCann each drew a pair of walks a piece and Francouer drew yet another walk.† The bullpen held on to the win for Smoltz as well.† Gonzalez pitched the eighth, giving up two hits and striking out one.† Soriano closed the game in the ninth with one strikeout and allowed no hits.† Final Score: Braves 4, Dodgers 0
