Well, now we know why Shane Reynolds was available. The Braves were never really in it as he gave up ten runs in only 3 1/3 innings, including three homers. The Brewers hit five in all.
The Braves did show up offensively, scoring five runs. Both Joneses had three-hit days, Chipper with a homer and two doubles. Andruw had a homer stolen by an outfielder.
Mark DeRosa got the start at third base. I’m not aware of any Vinnjury, but one can hope. More likely it was just a spot start. Javy Lopez hopes to start tonight.
