Nothing going on with the Braves bats The Atlanta Braves lost their ninth straight at Miller Park, as they were shut out 2-0 by the Brewers on Saturday.  Coupled with Friday night’s shutout against Milwaukee, this was the first time in over a year the Braves were shut out in back-to-back games. The Braves once again failed to get any run support for their starting pitcher.  Tim Hudson was good on the mound, but got nothing to work with.  Hudson pitched 7 innings, 2 ER, 4 BB (1 intentional), and 4 K’s.  His line does not do justice to how much pitching he had to do in pressure situations.  In his 6 innings, the Brewers had runners on in each inning except for the 1st. Former Brave, Juan Francisco, singled to left center, knocking in Aramis Ramirez.  That run got the scoring started and gave the Brewers a 1-0 lead in the 4th. In the 5th inning, Ramirez knocked home a run of his own, as he singled to left center field.  Norichika Aoki, the Brewers lead off man, came into score and increased the Brewers lead to 2-0. That was the only runs that would be scored on Saturday. Nothing going on with the Braves bats The Braves continued to struggle offensively.  After registering only 2 hits on Friday, they were only able to manage 4 hits on Saturday afternoon. Andrelton Simmons and B.J Upton were the only Braves players to record hits during the game.  Simmons was 2-4, while Upton was 2-3. After Simmons singled off the wall in the 9th, the Braves were able to bring the tying run to the plate with 1 out.  Jason Heyward lined out, and then Freddie Freeman struck out to end the game. The Braves have not scored since the 3rd inning of Thursday’s game against the Mets.  That is 24 straight innings without the Braves scoring a single run. I would not be surprised if we see Fredi Gonzalez change things up tomorrow afternoon to see if they can get something going offensively. The Nationals got beat 7-1 at the hands of the Rockies, so the Braves still have a 5-game lead in the division.  The lead is just going to continue to evaporate if they do not start scoring some runs.
