Another one-run game, but this time we had the correct result. The Braves should have had a lot more than four runs — Mark Buehrle was all over the place (partly due to Laz Diaz behind the plate, calling a predictably unpredictable strike zone), giving up five hits, four walks, and a hit batsman in five innings, but the Braves only scratched three runs off him, leaving the bases loaded in both the third and the fourth.
Hudson had one of his oh-no-oh-okay games, giving up three runs in the first two innings but then retiring the last 16 men he faced, coming out after needing just 80 pitches to get through 7 innings. O’Flaherty and Kimbrel shut the door effectively. Uggla was 0-3 but he only struck out once, which almost looks like progress if you squint.
