Atlanta Braves vs. Cincinnati Reds — Box Score — May 22, 2012 — ESPN

Well, Michael Bourn tried his best, but not much additional offense showed up to help him, and Great American Smallpark got to Brandon Beachy a bit.

Beachy pitched pretty well, allowing only seven baserunners and striking out five in his seven innings of work, but he gave up three homers to the Reds’ middle-infield duo, and that was enough to beat a Braves lineup that, apart from Bourn (three hits, 10 total bases), managed only three singles and one RBI double (from Jason Heyward, in the only run-scoring play in this game that wasn’t a home run).

While Mat Latos, unlike Mike Leake, is a good pitcher, it’s still frustrating to watch the Reds continue to tee off while the Braves offense mostly just sputters. They’ll look to Tommy Hanson to try to salvage the final game of the series right the ship tomorrow; surely, they can at least hit Bronson Arroyo.
