Braves Crush Astros, Allow Just Two Hits

The Braves utterly dominated the Astros both on the field and at the plate, winning 13-0.

Matt Diaz led the charge, going 3-4 with a double, homer, two runs and four RBIs. Starting at third base, Martin Prado went 2-4 and drove three runs and scored one. Jeff Francoeur, Casey Kotchman and Clint Sammons all scored two runs each.

Jo-Jo Reyes started for Atlanta and went four innings, allowing no hits and walking two batters. In his two innings, Jeff Bennett allowed the Astros their only two hits. Boone Logan, Manny Acosta and Todd Redmond all had scoreless innings. The staff allowed only five base-runners total all game.

The Braves continue the spring today against the Yankees while the World Baseball Classic picks up steam.

W - Jo-Jo Reyes (1-0)
L - Fernando Nieve (0-1)
HR - Matt Diaz (1)
