Braves Win 10th Game In a Row

The Braves are continuing to impress after a 9-2 win against the Marlins today. It was another great pitching performance from both the bullpen and the starter, Tommy Hanson. Tommy went 4.2 innings giving up 5 hits, 2 runs, and 2 walks. He also struck 2. Our bullpen pitched 4.1 giving up and only gave up 1 walk and no hits while striking out 4. Josh Johnson was the starter for the Marlins and he had pitched a great game as well, but saw the bullpen blow it. He went 3 innings and gave up 3 hits, 1 walk, and 1 run.
Freeman, Francoeur, Infante, and Schafer all had 2-hit games. Obviously Francoeur was the best news since he had been pretty hot lately and has improved his average to .280. Today he went 2-3 with 2 RBIs and 2 runs scored. I think he is starting to find his grove again. The new stance is working.

    I have no idea who looked good in the games these past two days because I’ve been on the road and both DOB and Mark decided not to make the trip to Jupiter. It’s nice to see Frenchy get 2 hits 2 days in a row. I’m pumped about Kawakami too, I don’t think he’s even thrown his cutter in a game yet.
