Pathetic. This offense is pathetic. Held to five hits, only one for extra bases, they really didn’t even threaten. Derek Lowe was great, but had no chance of winning. Lowe allowed seven hits and didn’t walk anyone, but gave up a run in the fourth on a GIDP and a homer in the sixth to Burn In Hell, and is now 1-2 on the season despite a 1.45 ERA. I’d say he was in the nonsupport spot in the lineup if the Braves were averaging more than 3.2 runs a game.
McLouth had a double in the fourth to break up a perfect game on the part of Cole Hamels. Other than that, they got singles from Prado, Heyward, Gonzalez, and Freeman. All were spread out but the ones from Heyward and AAG, which came with two out in the seventh. Craig Kimbrel gave up a run in the ninth but it didn’t matter at all.
