Last night was a good one to be a Braves fan. We needed it.
Shelby Miller was sublime. Matt Wisler righted himself at Gwinnett, tossing 5-1/3 innings of 1-run ball, striking out 7 and walking one. And teammate Jose Peraza remained red-hot, upping his BA to .320 with two steals.
Back to the present: CD has given me permission to mock him for complaining 9 days ago about KJ’s playing time. Since then KJ, with a .578 slugging percentage in 2015, has homered four times. Perhaps he was motivated by CD’s slight.
He’s in the line-up tonight, as is Alberto Callaspo, the Latin Keith Lockhart.
Markakis 9, Simmons 6, Freeman 3, KJohnson 7, Callaspo 5, Bethancourt 2, Peterson 4, Maybin 8, Foltynewicz 1
