Josh Anderson had hit one homer entering tonight’s game; he hit two, one leading off the game and a two-run homer in the second, tonight. The Braves jumped off to a 9-0 lead, Francoeur with a couple of doubles in the middle of it.
And then they had to hold on for dear life. Klinger gave up a run in the second, one in the third, one in the fourth, and two in the fifth, and Bobby finally got him out of there with a 9-5 lead. This time, the bullpen was great, giving up just one hit. Nunez relieved Parr and got the win, while Atrosta, Jorge Julio, and Gonzalez finished up.
Li’lbridge had a two-run triple in the top of the ninth for not really needed insurance. Every Braves starter — including Parr — had at least one hit, and all but Parr and Clint Sammons had two or more. Jeffy had three hits, three runs scored and three RBI… Chipper pinch-hit in the ninth, and flew out. He is at .364 and leads Pujols (who was 1-4) by eight points. If Chipper doesn’t start tomorrow, he should have this won.
