So much for a soft platoon. Chris Johnson is knocking the cover off the ball but, with a right-hander on the mound, Alberto Callaspo gets the start at third. Not sure I’d lump all the lefty bats together, either, but what the hell, the Brave are 4-0.
E.Y. Jr 8, Peterson 4, Markakis 9, Freeman 3, K Johnson 7, Callaspo 5, Bcourt 2, Simmons 6, Teheran 1
Meanwhile, the Braves marketing department has doubled down on the corn pone. That’s right, the fake fiddler with the faux beard is still appearing on the Jumbotron during the 7th inning stretch.
Hey Vern, make it stop!
