The Atlanta Braves found their first trip to Marlins Park an enjoyable one, defeating their NL East foes by a score of 11-0. The club pounded out 16 hits and scored eight of their 11 runs with two outs, which has seemingly become a trend in recent weeks.
Tim Hudson was phenomenal against a hot Miami lineup, surrendering just five hits and three walks. He struck out there and needed just 108 pitches to complete his evening.
The other story of the game was Dan Uggla, who went 4-for-5 with two homers, five RBI and three runs scored. Uggla's second homer hit the enormous statue in center field, which was an estimated shot of 435 feet. Jason Heyward went 3-for-4 with a walk, giving him his first multi-hit game in nearly a month.
Young shortstop Andrelton Simmons has been impressive in the field since being called up, but his bat was yet to come around. That changed on Tuesday evening as the young prospect went 3-for-5 with a triple and three runs batted in.
Every starter in the Braves lineup had a hit other than Brian McCann.
Atlanta will look to claim a series victory on Wednesday night against Josh Johnson. Randall Delgado will take the mound for the Braves. The game is scheduled to start at 7:10 p.m. ET.
