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.

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.

Wood threw only two pitches and was forced to exit following a lengthy rain delay.  Game didn’t conclude until after one a.m.  Braves were behind 4-0 early.  Petersen hit a 2-run single, and Maybin had an RBI.  Miller looks to be the stopper Friday night.

Atlanta got out to an early 4-0 lead, thanks to a Maybin 3- run HR (8) and K. Johnson solo shot (8).  But it wasn’t meant to be as the bullpen coughed up yet another lead.
