Hampton Out With Groin Strain, Braves Lose To Tigers

The Tigers posted a win on the Braves 9-6 once more and history repeats itself as Mike Hampton is out, once again, with a groin strain. Mike had to leave in the second inning of his second start. This may lead the Braves to sign Kyle Lohse, who is reportedly seeking a one-year contract worth $4-$10 million, if Hampton is out for any significant amount of time.

Ivan Rodriguez, who was batting leadoff, and Brandon Inge hit home runs for the Tigers. Rodriguez and Freddy Guzman drove in two runs each for the Tigers; Ivan also had two doubles. Chipper Jones drove in two runs for the Braves and Matt DeSalvo pitched two scoreless innings for the Braves.

Chipper Jones returned to action and went 2-2 and drove in two runs.

W - Virgil Vasquez (2-0)
L - Will Ohman (0-1)
HR - Ivan Rodriguez (2)
Brandon Inge (1)

Three Stars
C Ivan Rodrigez - 3-3, 2 2B, HR, 3 R, 2 RBI
CF Freddy Guzman - 2-4, 2B, R, 2 RBI
3B Chipper Jones - 2-2, R, BB, 2 RBI
