Horacio Ramirez gave up four runs, but his other stats were very good — five innings, eight strikeouts, four hits, one walk. Go figure. Zach Miner continued to show that he’s not ready, allowing three runs. The good news was that Danny Kolb threw a scoreless ninth, and also that Roman Colon had one perfect inning. I think Colon (who has a 1.13 ERA for the spring) is definitely on the team.

Chipper had two hits, as did Eddie Perez. Andruw and Jordan did not play; Langerhans pinch-hit unsuccessfully. Esix Snead was 0-3 and hopefully will do that a couple of more times to get him thoroughly out of the Braves’ minds.
