Even defeats encouraging
The Braves fell to the Fish today, 4-3, but the loss was tagged on Jose Ortegano, who has no shot of making the big club. Julio Teheran and Randall Delgado tossed scoreless frames, combining for three K’s.
More good news: Nate McLouth’s homer off Marlins closer Leo Nunez gives him more hits than he had all of last spring. Nate’s 1.436 OPS easily leads the Grapefruit League, though he barely leads teammate Freddie Freeman in BA: .467 to .458. F2 had three hits today.
