The Braves offense still can’t do anything much except for swing and miss. McCann and Melky both quickly struck out (Melky on three pitches) before Conrad finally broke up the string of six straight outs with a single to center. Alex Gonzalez proved that he’s just not the person you want up with runners on base, as he chase three balls high and out of the zone. He made contact with the third one, but it was an easy out for Pat Burrell in left field.
Basically, easy outs has become the theme of the evening for Atlanta hitters.
