You can’t win them all. This particularly holds true when you allow five runs in about a minute.
The Braves took a 1-0 lead in the first, with Michael Bourn (who had a super day, 3-3 with a walk and two runs scored) doubled, went to third on a Martin Prado grounder, and scoring on a Freddie Freeman sac fly.
Randall Delgado retired the first five men he faced, then allowed five straight to reach and the D-Backs control of the game. First it was a single, then a double to make it second and third. For some reason, Fredi ordered an intentional walk of the weak-hitting John McDonald, which backfired when Delgado walked the opposing pitcher, Ian Kennedy. And then Braves-killer Gerardo Parra hit a grand slam and suddenly it was 5-1.
The Braves whittled it to 5-3, with Prado doubling home Bourn in the third and Freeman singling in Deldago in the fifth. But they couldn’t get closer, and Cristhian Martinez allowed a run in the seventh. Juan Francisco hit a homer in the ninth, but that was all they got… The Braves outhit the D-Backs 10-7. That’ll happen.
