Folty was awesome, Nelson threw a lot more pitches but matched our boy goose egg for goose egg until the bottom of the sixth, when we managed to plate two.
Cameron Maybin singled to start our sixth. Freddie walked for the second time, and Neck also worked Nelson for a walk. AJP’s liner turned into a force at second; but instead of turning the play on Freeman at second, the Brewers tried to double up AJP at first. AJP beat the throw, and Freddie, who had been dead meat, moved to third. Andrelton ripped a single to left to score Freddie with what would be the winning run.
Folty started the eighth and would have completed it had Maybin not misplayed a wind-blown fly ball, allowing the Brewers run to score. Luis Avilan relieved Folty and struck out Gerardo Parra to end the eighth.
Jason Grilli dominated the ninth, striking out the side but providing a little drama with a two out walk.
Folty went 7-2/3, struck out seven, walked one, plunked one and was charged with a tainted earned run. The end result: your Atlanta Braves have a winning record far deeper into the season than most of us dreamed possible.
Go west, young men, and conquer.
