Braves Vs. Diamondbacks: Fredi Gonzalez Is A Fan Of Big Leads

The Atlanta Braves kept kept their streak alive on Saturday hanging on for a 3-2 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks. Atlanta has enjoyed an offensive explosion of late which has led to a string of lopsided victories. Following Satuday's game manager Fredi Gonzalez was asked if he was happy to see a more conventional low scoring one-run ball game.

"No, not really. I like those seven-run leads. Better for the stomach that way. But those two guys at the end of the game were nails, and it was nice to see Tommy get us to those guys. That's another quality start. Guys have been going deep in ballgames [lately]."

Atlanta's offensive explosion of late has overshadowed its pitching which hasn't always been the case in the past. However, Atlanta got a solid performance out of Tommy Hanson on Saturday and then Jonny Venters and Craig Kimbrel who finished the game with six straight strikeouts.
