So I had only two arrows left in my luck-changing quiver. Not wanting to deploy Collins yet, I went with not watching the game and just following online while watching something else. (Not watching anything would be ridiculous.) And it worked. I did tune in once; Freddie Freeman hit into a bases-loaded double play. Sorry, Freddie.
The Braves jumped on top in the second (after leaving the bases loaded in the first) when Alex Gonzalez homered, followed by doubles from Jason Heyward and Michael Bourn and a Martin Prado single to bring in Bourn.
Randall Delgado got into a bases-loaded, one-out jam in the third, but Logan Morrison lined into a double play. Other than that, he was pretty stout; he allowed a couple of two-out walks in the fifth but that was it.
Freeman homered in the sixth to make it 4-0. AAG singled as part of loading the bases (they didn’t get any more runs, of course) and apparently hurt his calf running the bases, replaced by Jack Wilson. The Braves also had the bases loaded in the seventh, but Freeman hit into the double play.
