Braves win Big Against Colorado

Posted by m1fournier on May 20, 2009

MattDiazBraves starter pitched 5 scoreless innings, striking out 6 and not walking a batter. The Braves once again had the bats going, they beat the Colorado Rockies 12-4 tonight. The Braves offense has found their way in the last 2 games tonight, knocking Rockies starter Jorge De La Rosa around for 7 runs in only 3.2 innings of work. It was his worst start of the season. But enough about the Rockies poor pitching lets talk about the Braves offense.

For the Braves Yunel Escobar went 2-4 including a 3-run HR in the 4th inning where he plated 3. Outfielder Matt Diaz had 3 hits, including a triple, and scored 4 times for the Braves. Also for the Braves Jeff Francouer went 1-3 with 2 RBI’s and 2 runs, David Ross(who played catcher for Brian McCann tonight) had  RBI’s, and Jordan Scahfer also had 2 RBI’s to bring his season total up to 8.

This is good sign for the Braves who had been struggling to get runs, but while I agree this is good that we not look to far into it as the Rockies pitching is far below average. But hell we’ll take the win and the success of the offense. Just a note Jeff Franocuer saved a spot on my fantasy team tonight with a solid performance. Braves and Rockies play the final game of the series tomorrow at 7:00 Pm as Kris Medlen will make his major league debut for the Braves. GO BRAVES!
