The Pirates unloaded off JV and David Carpenter, but Julio Teheran and Sean Gilmartin pitched two scoreless innings each. The two top contenders for the fifth spot in the rotation each struck out two and allowed only one baserunner apiece.
Jay Hey hit his first homer and B.J. and Schafer had two hit games. Otherwise, the bats remained flaccid and the Braves drop to 0-3.
