The Braves put a five-spot up in the fifth inning and it held up as the Braves won 5-4. The game was called in the bottom of the ninth due to rain.
Yunel Escobar drove in three runs for the Braves on two hits, including a double and scored a run. Joe Borchard drove in another run with a double and he leads the majors with . Honestly, he could bat his way onto the bench, but I don't know what kind of pitches he's hitting. There has to be a reason that he didn't do so well before with the White Sox and Florida.
Zach Schreiber had two innings of scoreless relief for the Braves. Tom Glavine started and allowed two runs in the third inning and had to be taken out.
Dontrelle Willis pitched three scoreless innnings in his start. Shortstop Ramon Santiago had and center fielder Brent Clevlen had three singles each for Detroit.
