Knock on wood
Could Spring Training be going any better for the Bravos?
Chipper smacked his sixth double and third homer Thursday against the Nats. His 11 RBI lead the team and his knee hasn’t been an issue.
“I have no pain in the knee whatsoever. I feel like I turned the corner about 2½ weeks ago,” Jones said after the 7-6 victory.
And, ho-hum, two more hits for Nate, now batting .367 with a .525 OBP. Jay Hey and Freddie also went deep.
The pitching has been equally stellar. Huddy tossed five scoreless frames tonight, and outside of one spotty performance by JJ, the starters have been consistently excellent.
Even Kenshin threw two shutout innings Thursday.
It wasn’t a great night for Jordan Schafer and Scott Proctor, however. Schafer was hitless in three AB’s (dropping his spring BA to .170) and committed two errors, while Proctor allowed five earned in two innings. Gwinnett, here they come.
