Matt Diaz got on base via a misplayed ball by Placido Polanco. Alex Gonzalez followed with a single and Brooks Conrad drove Diaz in with a base hit of his own. After Rick Ankiel struck out, Tim Hudson came through with yet another RBI single. Omar Infante lofted a triple down the right field line to drive in both Hudson and Conrad, pushing the score to 5-2.
This was probably the biggest half inning of the Braves season. Now all they need to do is limit the Phillies’ bats and try and tack on while they are back at the plate.
