Well, that’s pretty standard. The Braves came back from 5-3 down to tie it, only to lose when they immediately gave up four runs. In their defense, they’re a bad team and you can’t expect them to win.
Jo-Jo had nothing, and was lifted in the fourth having given up five runs. The tag team of Carlyle and Julio kept the game in reach, and the Braves tied it up on an error in the seventh. But Tavarez got killed in the eighth, allowing four runs on five hits, and that was the ballgame.
Chipper was 0-3 before leaving with a sore shoulder. He is hitting .362 and has a nine-point lead in both BA and OBP.
