This sucks. Jo-Jo Reyes pitched pretty well, and probably earned another start, but gets hung with a loss. He allowed a couple of runs in the fifth while the Braves’ offense was getting shut down. In the seventh, he allowed a couple of singles and a sac bunt, then gave way to Moylan. Unfortunately, Moylan, after striking out the first guy, gave up a walk and a couple of singles to score both of Reyes’ runs and two of his own.
The Braves rallied off of Mike Stanton in the eighth, getting two runs on an Andruw homer and two more on a KJ triple. In the ninth, Chipper singled in Renteria with two out but Andruw flew out to the track to end it.
Reyes had no strikeouts at all. He’s got a bit of the Horacio in him, it seems, and that doesn’t work in the long term. Hopefully it’s just a phase; he’s struck out plenty in the minors… Saltalamacchia started at first base against a lefty for the first time, but went 0-4.
