Atlanta Braves vs. Milwaukee Brewers – Box Score – April 07, 2011 – ESPN.

Well, at least it wasn’t another one-run loss. Though it very easily could have been! Tommy Hanson gave up a bunt single and a homer to fall down 2-0 in the first, the Braves tied it with a two-run single from Martin Prado in the second, only to see it go 3-2 with a fielder’s choice grounder scoring a run in the bottom of the inning. And then it stayed that way for awhile as the Braves, once again, couldn’t get anything going.

Hanson was actually quite lucky to allow only three runs in 5 1/3, as again his velocity was down. In addition to the homer, he allowed seven total hits, two of them doubles, and struck out only two. Something’s not quite right with him, but it’s early. George Sherrill and Scott Linebrink, somehow, got out of a problem in the sixth to keep it 3-2, but then Moylan loaded the bases while getting no outs in the seventh. (It wasn’t entirely his fault, as nobody covered first base on a sac bunt attempt to really get the inning going.) Jonny Venters did a great job to get out of it with only one run scoring.

The Braves loaded the bases themselves, with two out however, in the eighth, but Alex Gonzalez grounded out. It’s not like they’re not getting any run-scoring opportunities, but they’re not getting too many.
