Game Recap - 5/27/10

Written by Joe Lucia on .

Braves 8 (25-22), Marlins 3 (24-24) WP: Moylan (2-0) LP: Nolasco (4-4) Oh no, Tim Hudson didn't get a quality start! The world doesn't know what to do. Regardless, Hudson's quest for a 8th straight quality start was interrupted by Mother Nature, thanks to a nice 1 hour rain delay before the beginning of the 5th inning. After that delay, the Braves offense exploded. The score was 3-2 Braves before the delay, and steadily increased until reaching the 8-3 final. The offense pounded out 14 hits, and walked 8 times. It was really a fantastic offense night for a team that a month ago, people said should be left in the gutter and that coaches needed to be fired. God bless the internet and loudmouths. I'd list the guys who helped propel the offense, but only Eric Hinske didn't reach base. In fact, every other starter reached base multiple times, with the supposedly washed up Chipper Jones and the horribly slumping Yunel Escobar reaching 4 times, to the joy of Braves fans everywhere. We also had a huge milestone in the game, as Melky Cabrera had a pair of hits to boost his OPS above .600! Welcome to the club Melky. Martin Prado and David Ross each had 2 RBI for the Braves, while Escobar and Jason Heyward each scored a pair of runs. The only offensive negative...it should have been better. The team stranded 13 men. Unreal. The pitching was...fine. Hudson allowed 2 runs in his 4 innings, though the 4th inning was completed in a downpour and Hudson was losing grip on the ball. Whatever. The bullpen pitched 5 innings of 1 run ball, and that run was unearned. They also struck out 8 men in the process. I love having a bullpen that can strike guys out. Nothing to really nitpick on here...just a good overall performance from the pitching staff. The Pirates come to Atlanta this weekend. There will not be a series preview since...well...the Braves faced the Pirates last weekend. Not a whole lot has changed in a week. Game recap will actually be up this evening as opposed to tomorrow...well, probably. Who knows what can happen on this Memorial Day weekend...Derek Lowe and Zach Duke tonight. God help me.
