The Braves really laid an egg last night due to poor defense. Chipper Jones, Dan Uggla and Andrelton Simmons all made key errors in this game leading to 4 unearned runs for the Cardinals. Kris Medlen was the losing pitcher last night, but he deserved better. He worked the first 6 1/3 innings for the Braves last night and he gave up 3 hits, 5 runs (2 earned), did not walk a batter and he whiffed 4 of them. Chad Durbin allowed an unearned run as the Braves made an error on the only batter he faced last night. Jonny Venters worked 2/3 of an inning allowing 1 hit and 0 runs. Eric O’Flaherty threw a scoreless inning in which he allowed 2 hits. Craig Kimbrel pitched a scoreless, hitless ninth inning while whiffing 1 batter. Offensively, the Braves just couldn’t string their hits together last night. Freddie Freeman (3 for 4 with a double) and David Ross (3 for 4 with 1 run scored, a homer and 2 RBIs) led the way for the Braves with the bats in this game. Jose Costanza (1 for 1 with a triple and a run scored), Jason Heyward (1 for 5 with a double) and Chipper Jones (1 for 5) also helped out a little offensively in this game. This was a sad way to see Chipper Jones’ outstanding career in the majors end.
