The Braves got a dominant pitching performance from starter Kris Medlen and the rest of the Braves bullpen, including Billy Wagner, who recorded career save number-400. Braves McCann also recorded a career milestone with career homerun number-100. That run gave the Braves the lead. Brooks Conrad added an insurance run on a solo homerun in the eighth.
It was a great way to open up Braves Alumni Weekend, and an especially good way to erase the memory of the three-game losing streak. The team is back at it tomorrow afternoon.
