Where the heck did that come from? Kyle Davies went eight innings, allowed but six hits, struck out three, and hit a home run. Against the Mets. Go figure.
Andruw, meanwhile, finally had some hits. In the second, after back-to-back doubles from McCann and Francoeur, he singled in Francoeur to make it 2-0. He also walked and scored in the sixth, and doubled in the seventh. He did hit into a bases-loaded double play in the third, which kept the game at 4-0. It was 5-0 by the end of the fourth inning, and Sosa was out of there. Davies’ three-run, two-out homer in the sixth totally broke it open, turning a 5-1 game to 8-1 and allowing the Braves to coast.
The only Brave to not reach base was Chipper. Again, go figure. Wickman pitched the ninth, which makes sense since he’d only pitched once since he came off the DL.
And Redman was released. Good day.
