Last night the Atlanta Braves took on the Miami Marlins and crushed them 11-0 in the first game of three in the series. The Braves scored four runs in both the top of the seventh and ninth inning.
Two main players to be attributed in the win would have to be 32-year-old second baseman, Dan Uggla and right-handed pitcher, Tim Hudson 3-2, 4.60 ERA.
The former Marlin, Uggla had gone 4-for-5 with a double, two home runs and five RBIs. The second home run came at the top of the ninth making this Ugglas 200th career homer.
“This is where I started my career and to get my 200th homer here is awesome. Here, or Atlanta, it would have been great either way,” Uggla said.
Main man of the night was Tim Hudson. Hudson pitched a “complete-game, five-hit shut out.” He walked three and struck out three.
Last night Hudson had his 25th career complete game and 13th career shutout. The win made his career record against the Marlins to 12-4.
Congratulations Atlanta! Keep up the good work.
The Braves will take on the Marlins in the second game of the series in Marlins Park at 7:10 PM ET.
