Last night in his major league debut Kris Medlen lasted only 3 innings giving up 5 runs. It wasn’t a good game for the Braves as they failed to score a single run. I don’t have much to say…other than get em next time Medlen. Braves face Roy Halladay and the first place Toronto Blue Jays tonight at 7:30 pm at Turner Field. Go BRaves!!! Ohhh BTW Kenishin Kawakami is pitching tonight for the Braves!

The Braves bats once again failed to show up to support another great pitching performance. Failing to score only 1 run in the 5-1 lose tonight the offense once again looked terrible.
Braves starter Derek Lowe went 8 innings giving up 2 runs, 3 hits and striking out 3 while only walking 1. This is a reoccuring theme for the Braves as the lack of offense has ruined starts from Javier Vazquez, Jair Jurrjens, and now D. Lowe. The lone Braves run was driven in on an error plating Chipper Jones.
The Braves had its from catcher Brian McCann, Garret Anderson, Derek Lowe, Yunel Escobar, and Chipper Jones…As for Jeff Francouer and Casey Kotchman stranded a combined 5 men LOB. For the Rockies Jason Marquis pitched just a little bit better than Low. Marquis went 8 innings giving up only 1 run on 5 hits, while walking 3 and striking out 3. And for their offense they got RBI’s from Dexter Fowler, Chris Iannetta, Todd Helton, and Ryan Spillborghs.
This is the 2nd conseecutive game where the bats have failed the pitching staff, and for sure not the first time it has happened this year. The Braves and Rockies square up again tomorrow at 7:00 PM, where they’ll send Jair Jurrjens to the mound to face Jason Hammel. Hopefully they can get the bats going this time against a struggling Hammel.
