Good pitching beat good hitting today. Julio Teheran and almost the entire Atlanta bullpen shut down Colorado’s vaunted hitters, and Chase d’Arnaud’s third single chased home the game’s only run with two outs in the bottom of the ninth.
Atlanta’s offense was stymied by Jon Gray through seven, and it looked like the game would go on forever until d’Arnaud ended it. Freddie Freeman and Frenchy struck out seven times in the game. Evidently the doctor excised not only Freddie’s mole but also his bat. Nevertheless our Braves salvaged the last game to avoid a Rockies’ sweep.
Game balls go to Julio and Chase, but let’s score some runs tomorrow.
