Thank you FedEx, United Postal Service, UPS, or whoever delivered the Braves bats.Â Granted most of them got to Dodger Stadium in the 9th, but better late than never!Â Atlanta scored 8 runs in the 9th, and held off a Dodger surge that held the lead and preserved Brandon Beachy’s first win.Â I am hesitated to yell too loudly because the Braves have been able to have one hot game per series so far.Â The 10-1 victory did have a different feel maybe because the 9 spot had three hits in a row after going 0-56!

Derek Lowe, RHP
2-2, 1.82 ERAHaving posted a 1.46 ERA over his past nine regular-season starts, Lowe will attempt to extend his success while pitching on short rest. He has won three of his five regular-season starts on short rest.
Jon Garland, RHP
0-1, 11.25 ERA
Garland’s debut after returning from a strained oblique was a mess, with a pair of homers by Lance Berkman and a questionable balk that allowed a run to score. Now that he’s back, Garland needs to eat innings, which is what he was signed to do.
