Rematch Goes Braves' Way


W - Mariano Gomez (1-0)
L - Gary Majewski (0-1)

Despite Hanson being the first Braves starter to allow any runs this spring, the Braves teed off on Astros pitching, winning 9-4. Jason Heyward and Chipper Jones got the day off.

THE GOOD: The Braves had sixteen hits total. Brian McCann went 3-3 with a double, scored two runs and drove in three. Troy Glaus had a 3-3 day with a double. He scored two runs and drove in another. Brooks Conrad continued his big spring with a 2-4, one RBI day. Matt Young and Yunel Escobar drove in two runs apiece. The Braves staff only walked one batter.

THE BAD: Tommy Hanson allowed three runs (one earned), in his 2 1/3 innings of work. He allowed two doubles to Lance Berkman. Brent Clevlen had an 0-3 day at the plate.

UP NEXT: The Braves go to Lakeland to face the Tigers.
