The Braves pitchers took a bit of a beating as the Astros smacked six extra base hits in an 8-3 win.
Darin Erstad and Carlos Lee hit doubles off of Braves starter Derek Lowe and Michael Bourn hit a triple. Jason Smith doubled off of Mike Gonzalez and Kris Medlen gave up a double to Geoff Blum and a two-run homer to Lee.
Chipper Jones provided the only runs for the Braves when he launched a three-run homer off of former Brave Russ Ortiz. Garret Anderson had Atlanta's other extra-base hit: a triple off of Ortiz.
W - Russ Ortiz (2-1)
L - Derek Lowe (2-1)
