You can’t lose this game. The Braves, after an early solo homer by Prado, were shut down by Joe Blanton, and Jair Jurrjens, after giving up a solo homer to Utley, got screwed by his defense. It was 1-0 for the first three innings, 1-1 after Utley’s homer. Jurrjens got out of a bases-loaded, none-out jam in the fifth.
In the seventh, he walked Ibanez to lead off the inning. In one of those events that shows why the bunt can be a good play, Chipper threw away a sacrifice, putting runners on second and third, none out. The next batter hit a fly ball that ACHE misplayed so badly that it was turned from an error to a hit, allowing two runs to score. None of it was Jurrjens’ fault, but there it is.
The Braves got a run in the eighth. Diaz was hit by a pitch, and Prado singled. (At that point, he had three hits and the rest of the team had one.) Chipper singled to right to score Diaz, but Prado couldn’t get to third. It cost the Braves, as McCann hit into a double play and ACHE flew out. They went meekly against the World’s Worst Closer in the ninth.
