Braves Win Against the Nationals

The Braves were able to pull off another win yesterday against the Nationals. We had Jair Jurrjens on the mound to start and he had a pretty decent outing going 4 innings giving up 2 runs on 3 hits and 2 walks. Not much to talk about the pitching as the bullpen didn’t allow a run and only gave up 3 hits and a walk.
On the offensive side, Jason Heyward got into the power action as he hit a solo home run in the 7th inning. Other noticeable good performances were Jordan Schafer (1-3 with a double, a run scored, and a stolen base), Omar Infante (2-3 with 2 runs scored), Brandon Jones (2-3 with 1 run scored, 2 RBIs, and a walk), and Freddie Freeman (2-3 with 2 RBIs).
Here are the Box Stats for the game.

Today the Braves will take on the Marlins with Star Prospect Tommy Hanson pitching.

Braves beat Panama; U.S. beat Yankees in Early Spring Training Exibitions

Braves beat the Panama national team 11-2 behind a strong start from Tommy Hanson. The top-10 prospect struck out 3 over 3 innings and allowed 2 hits and a walk. The only run that was scored was an unearned one because of a Kelly Johnson throwing error. The pitching looked like this

Because Chipper, McCann, and Blanco were playing for their countries, we had to adjust, and we did fine with that. We had many of are young players coming in the game once we had a comfortable lead. Our other star prospect Jason Heyward hit his first Spring Training homer in the 8th. Here are some of the batting stats
BATTING
2B: Norton, Sammons, Conrad, Jones, B
HR: Gorecki (8th inning off Campos, 0 on, 0 out), Heyward (8th inning off Campos, 1 on, 1 out).
TB: Infante; Gorecki 4; Johnson; Conrad 2; Norton 3; Francoeur; Heyward 4; Young; Jones, B 2; Ross; Sammons 2; Hernandez, D 2.
RBI: Francoeur (1), Infante (1), Johnson (1), Norton (1), Sammons (1), Gorecki (1), Heyward 2 (2).

We also had Concepcion Rodriguez and Yeliar Castro playing for Panama. They are in our farm. Rodriguez went 1-4 with a run and Castro pitched 2.1 innings allowing 1 run, 2 hits, and 2 walks. 
In the U.S.-New York game, we had McCann going 0-3 and Chipper going 1-2 with a walk and a run. The U.S. ended up winning that game by a close score of 6-5.
Gregor Blanco went 0-1 playing with Venezuela.

The Braves will have a tough challenge ahead of them tomorrow as they face the Yankees. It should be a great game.
