It was a classic Braves game from years past: good pitching, many scoring opportunities lost, but just managing to eke out a victory. Oh, and there was a “Prado,” too:
Prado: Martin Prado has mastered the ability to make horrible plays on defense without being charged with errors — routine ground balls he waves at, “tough” plays that he botches for no reason, the old reliable bad relay on the double play. This leads to the term “Prado”, which is both a noun and a verb: Prado, n. “an egregious misplay that is not scored an error for some reason.” Prado, v. “To commit a Prado”. … The preceding was written by Mac during Prado’s third season in the majors. He’s really gotten a lot better since then. (Added May 6, 2008, edited September 23, 2012.)
The good Williams Perez showed up again, leaving both bad ones behind. They went six innings and did some expert wriggling, managing to yield just two runs on seven hits and a walk. The Braves offense did Braves offense things: Ender Inciarte opened the game by getting thrown out at second trying to stretch a hit into a double. Immediately after that, the next two men got on via a single and a hit by pitch, and naturally they were stranded, too, as were the two men who got leadoff singles in the second. The team actually got 14 hits, but the decisive two runs came in the eighth inning on a line drive that Martin Prado failed to corral.
