ESPN Box(LeBron was 4-4)

On a night when Dan Uggla hit a three run homer and BJ Upton hit a popup that carried to deep shortstop, the hero of this game was Julio Teheran. Joe Simpson would have you believe Gerald Laird’s outstanding game calling skills was the difference, like he was Crash Davis or something.

Nuke Teheran went eight and a third shutout innings  before Josh Willingham hit one off the bull. (But he gripped it like an egg…)  No word if the Braves will send Teheran to see Dr. Andrews, just to beat the rush.

After Willingham won a free steak, Luis Avilan forced a fly out to right and Corey Gearrin came on picked up the Save (TM).

On another note, the Braves only struck out four times tonight. The last three games have probably been the three best pitched games of the season.

That’s four in a row, it’s called a winning streak.
