You can’t spell “dangerous” without “Dan”. Continuing to suggest that he is the genuine article that the Braves traded for and not some sort of cheap knockoff, Dan Uggla hit a pinch two-run, two-out homer in the top of the ninth to give the Braves a 6-4 lead and the eventual win.
It was all homers, or almost all, last night. I suppose there are those who like such things, but I personally find it unelegant. The Reds got a solo homer to take the lead in the first. Jason Heyward and Brian McCann hit back-to-back solo homers in the sixth to make it 2-1. The only non-homer run scored in the sixth when Alex Gonzalez singled in McCann.
Unfortunately, Jair Jurrjens couldn’t hold the lead, allowing a two-run shot to tie followed by a solo homer to take the lead in the botton of the inning; Jurrjens allowed four hits on the night, but three were homers.
Martin Prado tied it in the seventh with, of course, a homer. AAG singled leading off the ninth, followed by a bunt because that’s what you want on a night where six homers have been hit. With two out, Uggla homered him in. Craig Kimbrel got the save with no difficulties.
