Game Recap - 6/25/10

Written by Joe Lucia on .

Braves3 (43-31), Tigers 1 (39-33) WP: Medlen (5-1) LP: Oliver (0-1) SV: Wagner (15) The story today wasn't the Braves offense. After all, the team only managed what amounted to a runner an inning. The story was once again the Braves pitching. Kris Medlen turned in a fantastic performance in his bid to remain a member of the starting rotation, pitching 6 2/3 innings of one run ball while striking out 5 and only walking one. Just what the doctor ordered. After Medlen left the game, the Braves bullpen came into play...and you KNOW when that happens, the game is over. The pen allowed one baserunner, a walk by Eric O'Flaherty, and nothing else to the Tigers. Billy Wagner threw a perfect 9th, striking out the side and only throwing one ball, to pick up the 400th save of his career. Offensively, there wasn't much tonight for the Braves, but it got the job done. The Braves answered a first inning Tigers run with a 2nd inning run driven in by Melky Cabrera. The other 2 Braves runs came off solo homers off the bats of Brian McCann and Brooks Conrad. Brooks Conrad AGAIN...dude is a machine, no doubt about it. McCann added a walk to his homer, and the only other Brave to reach multiple times was Chipper Jones, who singled twice. Didn't matter in the end, because the fantastic pitching of the Braves on the evening was enough to seal the deal no matter how well Tigers rookie Andy Oliver pitched in his first career start. Tomorrow is one of those weird 4 PM afternoon games, and will feature Max Scherzer for the Tigers and the embattled Braves starter Kenshin Kawakami on the hill. Kawakami is essentially pitching for his spot in the rotation...could be an interesting one. And thats all for me until next week! Be safe over the weekend folks.
