Jorge, Jorge, Jorge – what to say? The first inning, Sosa looked sharp. Perhaps his best first inning of the season. Any frankly he didn’t pitch as bad as his previous four starts. He went a season high, 6 innings, gave up 6 hits, 3 for homers, 4 earned runs, struck out three and walked just one. Cox on the Braves pitching, ""Our bullpen really held together tonight and Sosa was good at times, He just made some mistakes with that breaking ball again and they hit it out. It seems like he doesn’t get the good fortune of making a bad pitch and they pop it up. It went out tonight."
Where have you been Mr. Giles? Coming in to last nights game, Gilly was batting a cool .195 and was only 1/12 with RISP, in game 2 Giles went 4/5 with 3 singles and a game winning RBI double in the 8th that allowed Andruw Jones to score and the Braves to eventually win the game 5-4. The Braves are headed to Philly to take on their division counterparts, and Giles will be taking a "more pretty" batting average of .230.
All 5 runs came with 2 outs in the inning, now the Braves are hitting .289 with 2 outs after going 6-14 on Tuesday Night.
Game 1 of a 2 game set with Philadelphia begins tonight at 7:05p ET, John Smoltz vs Brett Myers.
