In the top of the first, Kris Medlen struck out Jon Jay to begin the game on three pitches. He then struck out Carlos Beltran with a belt-high changeup that was whiffed on. He hit Matt Holliday in the elbow with a pitch, but then forced Allen Craig to ground out weakly to shortstop Andrelton Simmons to end the inning.
In the top of the second, Heyward made an incredible home-run saving catch at the right field wall. Battling the sun in right field, J-Hey jumped at the wall and snagged the ball, keeping the score at 0-0. Medlen then got the next two batters to end the frame.
In the second, Lohse struck out Chipper Jones and Freddie Freeman. Dan Uggla drew a walk, which brought up David Ross. With a 1-2 count, Lohse began his motion, but Ross was granted timeout by home plate umpire at the final second. Lohse was unhappy. The next pitch was a changeup down the middle of the plate, which Ross sent over the left field wall for a two-run homer.
Braves lead 2-0 entering the third.
