Mark Teixeira singled home Willie Harris with the winning run in the eleventh. Once again: Rah.
John Smoltz had a no-hitter to two out in the sixth, but gave up a two-run opposite-field homer that tied the score. He finished with eight innings pitched and eight strikeouts, and a no-decision. He must have lost ten wins over the last three years like this.
The Braves got one run in the first as KJ walked, went to third on a Renteria single, and scored on a sac fly by Chipper. Chipper hit a solo homer in the fourth to make it 2-0. But the Braves got only one other hit in regulation, another single by Chipper. In the tenth inning, the Brewers got a run on a solo homer off of Moylan to make it 3-2, but Thorman of all people hit a two-out solo homer to tie it and set up Teixeira’s increasingly pointless heroics.
Chipper is at .341, Renteria at .333. Holliday is at .337 and plays tonight.
