Not much to say about this game. Neither of the Braves starting pitchers showed up – as Williams Perez gave up four first inning runs and then, aided by the double Grybo, five more in the fifth. Ryan Howard did what he always does to the Braves, driving in four runs, and Domonic Brown homered, again, in leading the rout.
David Buchanan was the beneficiary of the Phillies offensive largesse (and don’t you know Shelby Miller is thinking ‘I haven’t seen nine runs scored for me since April and this dude gets nine in five innings.’) to notch his second win of the season.
Freddie Freeman did hit a two run shot to left in the top of the eighth, but the ball only travelled 367 feet, so it probably was only a homer in Philadelphia. Oh well, at least the Braves didn’t trade off any other players for more injured Cuban infielders.
