The Braves finished up a great weekend in Los Angeles this weekend, as they took three of four from the Dodgers winning Sunday by a score of 8-2.Â The Braves went up early with single runs in the second, third and fourth on a Diaz homer, a Prado RBI single and an Adam LaRoche double play groundout.Â Prado and Diaz added RBI singles in the ninth inning for insurance runs and added five runs in all in the frame.Â Javier Vazquez(10-7) went eight innings of one run ball while only allowing five total hits, two walks and fanning seven.Â Check out The Braves Baseball Blog for more.
Dodgers starter Eric Stults(4-3) had a solid start while going five innings allowing only three runs and five hits, but he was pulled after only 75 pitches.Â The game stayed close until Ramon Transoco gave up four runs while recording one out in the ninth and Mota allowed the final run that inning.Â Casey Blake had the only RBI for the Dodgers with a sacrifice fly and Matt Kemp grounded into a double play for the final run in the ninth on a bad offensive day for the Dodgers.
Johan Santana went into Sunday’s start likely realizing that to get a win, he had to do things himself on the mound and with the bat.Â Santana(13-8) pitched eight innings allowing five hits and only one run on his way to a 5-1 victory.Â Santana at the plate also went 2-3 with a run scored and an RBI as he helped himelf too.Â Re-Metted Anderson Hernandez had two hits in his first start back along with Francouer, Castillo and Murphy to lead the Mets in hits.Â Francisco Rodriguez worked the ninth inning and did not allow a run or earn a save, but this was good news for the Mets after two bad outtings.Â The Real Dirty Mets Blog will have more information on the win and the Mets.
The Padres could not manage to get the fourth game of the series, even with a solid performance by Tim Stauffer.Â Stauffer(1-4) went five innings and actually only allowed one run and was charged with the loss in this one, as the Mets tacked on late.Â Chase Headley had the only RBI on the night for the Padres as he singled home Kevin KouzmanoffÂ in the sixth inning.
The Nationals have now done what probably everyone that surrounds baseball thought was possible for them this year, win eight in a row and two series sweeps straight.Â The Nats behind J.D. Martin’s first win, beat the Diamondbacks 9-2 on Sunday afternoon.Â Martin(1-2) went five innings allowing only one run and on a solo home run as his only mistake.Â Elijah Dukes contributed another three RBI game and Adam Dunn hit yet another home run in the first inning to lead the Nats on their way to victory and Jorge Sosa picked up his second save in as many days.Â You have to wonder now if Jim Riggleman is looking more like a permanent solution at manager for the Nats.Â Check out Centerfieldgate for more.
Yusmeiro Petit(2-6) had a rough day on the mound as he only lasted four innings allowing nine hits and three earned runs, four in total in taking this loss.Â Trent Oeltjen and Mark Reynolds hit solo home runs to give all the run support they could to Petit on this day.
