So the Braves can win the close ones, too. Tommy Hanson had his best outing of the year, going seven innings, striking out seven, and allowing just two runs. Meanwhile, the bullpen was impervious.
All the runs came early. The Braves should have gotten more than one run in the first, scoring on a bases-loaded walk by Chipper (hitting sixth) But that was all they got. Hanson allowed a single and a double in the first, then a groundout to tie it.
Martin Prado hit a single to score Jack Wilson in the second, then the D-Backs tied it with a homer in the bottom of the inning. Dan Uggla countered with a homer of his own in the third, and that was it for the scoring.
