NL East roundup: Braves dominate, Marlins edged by Cubs

  • Sharebar

Braves 11, Nationals 1

Notes: The number that umps out at you for this game is the number of errors committed by the Nationals. Michael Morse had three of those errors, two on ground balls, and one on a throwing error. Four of the Braves’ runs were unearned, but the 2-7 hitters in the Atlanta lineup all had at least one RBI, including Freddie Freeman, who had three. Martin Prado was 2-5 with a home run and Tim Hudson pitched seven innings, allowing just a first inning run on the way to an Atlanta victory.

Cubs 2, Marlins 1

Notes: This game was a great pitching duel between Ryan Dempster and Ricky Nolasco, with Dempster eventually coming on top , improving to 7-6 on the season. The Marlins bats struggled, not managing a single run until the ninth inning, only managing four hits off of Ryan Dempster. An error by Omar Infante in the fourth ended up being the difference in this close game.
