Braves swept in Baltimore

Not much to say about the last series as not much went right for Atlanta.  The Braves next begin a set in Philly.

New Call-up Garcia’s homer the difference in 3-2 win over Cards in series finale

Newcomer Garcia hit a go- ahead HR (1) in the 6th, making a winner of Matt Wisler.

Miller takes tough luck loss in 1-0 contest

The Cardinals scratched together a run in the 8th (Sac fly) and that was it.  They only had two hits, but it was enough.  Miller can’t buy a win.  He gets no run support.

Offense quiet again in 4-2 loss to Cardinals

After taking two of three from L.A.,the offense was stagnant for a second consecutive game.  The only Braves’ runs came courtesy of a 6th inning Maybin RBI double and a wild pitch.

The sell off has started as Atlanta shipped Uribe and K . Johnson to the Mets.  Maybe we’ll get them back next year.  They won’t be the only guys traded. Cardinals showed why they’re the best team in the National League.

Bats silent as Braves fall to Cubs 4-1 in series finale

Miller failed to get his 6th victory again.  No offense today.  Same story, different day.  Atlanta didn’t score until the ninth.

Lester, Cubs shut out Braves 4-0

Two costly Atlanta errors led to four Cub runs.  Atlanta didn’t get a hit until the 7th, or rather their first official hit.  Markakis’ earlier chopper was changed from a hit to an error.  Pierzinski’s single ended any chance of a no hitter.

Perez’ 2-run single lifts Braves past Cubs 4-2

It was a very close game yesterday.  In the 1st, Markakis singled and went to third on a WP/ errant throw.  He scored on K.J.’s 2- out RBI single.  After the Cubs went ahead 2-1, Atlanta tied it in the 3rd.  Maybin singled with two outs and sprinted home on Markakis’ RBI double.

The game stayed tight til late.  Yuri Perez hit a game- winning two- out 2-run 1b with the bags packed in the 8th.  Jim Johnson picked up save # 6 in place of the injured Grilli.  Theran pitched ok for 5.2 IP.  The series continues tonight at the Ted.

Wood struggles as Braves drop series finale to Rockies 10-3

Down 3-0, Atlanta tied it in the 6th on RBI singles by K. J. and Pierzinski and a Gomes RBI double.  It wouldn’t be tied for long.  Wood was charged with 7 R in 5.2 IP.  He battled but it wasn’t enough.  Braves head into the All Star break mired in a five- game losing streak.

Braves lose heartbreaker 3-2; Grilli out for season

Atlanta got HR’s from Uribe (7) and Lavarnway (1), but nothing else.  Wisler pitched well: 6 IP, 6 H, 2 R, 7 k’s.  A bit of bad news: Grilli was lost for the year following a gruesome Achilles injury.  He was sprinting to first and crumpled to the ground.  Tough break.  Next man up.

Miller struggles in 5-3 defeat to Rox

Miller was unable to capture his elusive fifth win. He lasted 5 IP, allowing 5 R, 10 H, 6 k’s.  K. Johnson proved Atlanta’s only offense- a 3- run 6th inning HR (9).  Wisler looks to get the Braves back on the winning track Saturday afternoon.
