A much better outing from Javier Vazquez. He allowed two more homers, but only two other baserunners, which minimized the damage.
The Braves took an early lead in the second, when Francoeur singled in ACHE (who had walked, and moved to second on a McCann single). The Phillies tied it up in the fourth on a homer by Utley, but the Braves followed with the big inning. Vazquez doubled with one out, and KJ, back in the leadoff spot, followed with a double of his own to make it 2-1. Then Escobar hit a homer to make it 4-1.
Vazquez, meanwhile, was cruising. After the homer, he retired eleven Phillies in a row. McCann gave him some more breathing room with an eighth-inning homer, scoring Chipper, to make it 6-1. The Phillies broke the spell with a leadoff homer from Ibanez, but Vazquez got the next two before handing it off to O’Flaherty. Vazquez wound up with seven strikeouts, four hits, and, importantly, no walks. O’Flaherty got his man, and Gonzalez pitched the ninth (non-save situation), allowing a two-out double to Utley is all.
McCann’s eyes seem to be fine, as he went 3-4; he was the only Brave with more than one hit. McCann and Escobar join Francoeur, Chipper, Ross, and KJ with three homers; nobody on the team has more than that.
