Atlanta beat Houston with Lowe Strong on the Mound

The Braves stay hot in the Spring by beating the Astros 7-4.
Derek Lowe had an INCREDIBLE start as he went 4 innings and never allowed a ball to leave the infield. He struck out 6 and didn’t walk any. Through those 4 innings, nobody got on base. Great start by Derek. We allowed 4 runs the whole game (only 1 was actually earned. They scored 3 unearned runs because of 2 errors). Soriano had his first Spring appearance and he went 1 inning allowing 1 hit and struck out one.
Very good pitching performance again this game. We still haven’t allowed a home run yet this spring.
We had 13 hits this game and 5 walks. Kelly Johnson was the only player to have 2 hits and Omar Infante had a 2 run triple. Here are the box stats provided by Mlb.com

No Braves players that saw any action yesterday in the Classic that I know of, but here are Scott Diamonds stats from Monday:
Scott Diamond: 3 innings allowing 3 hits, 1 run, 1 walk, and struck out one.

Who would have though the Dutch could beat and knock out Dominican Republic in Group Stage. That is just unreal.

The Braves face the Phillies today at 1:05 ET with JoJo Reyes on the mound.
