Braves Flying High
The Atlanta Braves made history today.
For the first time in almost 50 years, they completed a four-game sweep of the Philadelphia Phillies, in Philadelphia.
The game was down to the wire, but Aaron Harang was able to gut out a win, with Craig Kimbrel coming in for the close.
Catcher Gerald Laird led the Braves with two hits while B.J. Upton provided two RBI with a triple in the top of the second inning.
Harang went seven innings, giving up 11 hits and two runs. The Phillies Marlon Byrd scored both with two solo home run shots.
In the 9th, Craig Kimbrel came in for the close. It was dicey. The Phillies got runners on the corners, but Kimbrel coaxed a pop-fly out from the last batter.
The Braves return home and host the New York Mets in a three game series.
