Ender Inciarte christens SunTrust Park with its first home run

20 April, 2017, 13:35 | Author: Alberta Rodriguez

He had no reason to worry.

Known more for his defense than offense, the 26-year-old center fielder already has four home runs through 11 regular-season games.

Bartolo Colon, who struggled at Miami in his second start after an impressive first outing back in NY against the Mets, will start for the Braves, who have won three straight and lead the four-game series with the Padres 2-0.

While Smyrna resident Annette Craddouk, an assistant principal at Ford Elementary School, said she could not get tickets to Friday's game, she said the Battery was better than just a consolation prize. "Like I tell everybody, the day it's my turn to pitch is the happiest day of the week for me". "I love it. It's insane". They got plenty of help from sloppy St. Louis, which at 3-8 is off to its worst start in 20 years and has the poorest record in the NL. "I love being around the guy".

With three homers in two games, Inciarte matched his power output for all of last season. "He could have easily gone seven or eight innings the way he was throwing the baseball".

"It's nice having him on our side", said Freddie Freeman.

Blanton (0-2) relieved starter Tanner Roark to open the eighth, hit Freddy Galvis with a pitch and gave up Hernandez's one-out homer.

"The thing was dancing around pretty good", Braves manager Brian Snitker said.

"This facility, SunTrust Park, is for you", Schuerholz said to much applause.

Next up for the Braves are these same Padres, at 1:35 PM.

The Pirates trailed 2-1 in the sixth when Freese hit a tying single and Cervelli had a two-run double. Ender Inciarte hit his fourth homer in the seventh. Dansby Swanson and Nick Markakis delivered RBI singles.

MINNEAPOLIS - Dylan Covey allowed one run while pitching into the sixth inning of his big league debut and Matt Davidson hit a solo home run in the seventh, lifting the White Sox to the road win.

Padres: RHP Kevin Quackenbush was optioned to Triple-A El Paso to clear a roster spot for Cahill. Will the Braves make a postseason appearance?

About the Braves' ace: R.A. Dickey originally was slated to start the home opener, or at least that was the plan when the rotation was set in mid-March.

"I thought traffic was going to be insane there's a hole in 85, you probably covered, but I took Uber and it was an easy ride", says Seth Gaurney. "I was just trying to match Bartolo out there".

"I kind of got angry". The Japanese right-hander was charged with three runs and five hits in 6 1/3 innings.

Moustakas homered in the first and the Royals added a run in the second when Paulo Orlando scored on a wild pitch by JC Ramirez (2-1). Inciarte, who led off for Atlanta in the bottom of the first inning, had the first hit, reaching on an infield single.

TORONTO - Home plate umpire Dale Scott sustained a concussion when he was hit in the face mask by a foul tip from Baltimore slugger Mark Trumbo, casting a shadow over the Orioles' victory. He has only two other hits in 33 at-bats.

Trevor Cahill will be making the start for the Padres on Sunday.
