An absolute outburst of runs. One more and MRSA would need two hands to count them. The Jays struck first, against Mike Minor, with a double and a single in the first, but Minor held them from there, giving up only three more hits and an intentional walk.
The Braves tied it up in the bottom of the when Schafer walked, Heyward singled for first and third, and Chipper hit a sac fly. Heyward’s foolish caught-stealing to follow hurt when McCann and Freeman singled, followed by an Uggla groundout.
In the third, Chipper singled with one out and Brian McCann, the best catcher in baseball, put the Braves ahead with a homer. With two out, AAG doubled home Uggla (don’t worry, he reached on a fielder’s choice) to make it 4-1. Minor doubled in the fourth and came home on successive singles by Schafer and Heyward.
Minor left after seven. Eric O’Flaherty and Jonny Venters pitched in the non-save situation because that’s how Fredi rolls.
