B.J. Upton and Justin Upton both made great defensive plays and both homered to gave Aaron Harang his 12th win of the season after winning just 2 times in his last 7 starts.

Once again, Aaron did what he usually does, … 8 hits, 2 runs, 2 walks in 6+ innings. Who knew that Aaron Harang would pitch over 200 innings and have 25 quality starts, which is more than Cole Hamels, Clayton Kershaw, Jordan Zimmermann, or Stephen Strasburg? All that for a million bucks.

B.J.’s 12th homer came with the game tied in the top of the third and Justin’s 29th came after Freddie Freeman walked in the 7th, giving the Braves a 4 – 2 lead. Both Uptons also threw runners out at home. Extra nice!!

Aaron departed with 2 outs and a 4 – 2 lead. Chasen Shreve finished the 7th by getting Ben Revere to ground out to 3rd. David Carpenter looked good to lock down the 8th.

Craig Kimbrel made it interesting in the 9th. A hit, an error, a walk and the bases were loaded. However, Craig got Revere to line out to Andrelton who made a diving play to his right to end the game.

It was number 46 for Kimbrel.

After a 17 – 9 start, we ended 5 and 19, depending on how tomorrow turns out. With John Hart at the realm, there will almost certainly be changes. He’s got nothing left to prove so let’s hope he is willing to take a few risks to get another championship in Atlanta.
