Atlanta Braves 5, San Francisco Giants 2: Game Notes

Notes on the San Francisco Giants 5-2 loss to the Atlanta Braves:

  • Giants catcher Buster Posey and Braves third baseman Chipper Jones both had scheduled days off today.
  • Posey did appear as a pinch-hitter in the ninth, but he sent a fly ball to center for the last out of the game.
  • Right after the FOX announcers mentioned Eli Whiteside was catching, he threw out Martin Prado, who was attempting to steal second, by a few feet.
  • According to a later “Sounds of the Game” segment, that prompted home plate umpire Jim Joyce to quip, “That was pretty quick, big boy.”
  • Tim Hudson threw 26 pitches in the second inning.
  • Tim Lincecum threw 27 pitches in the third inning.
  • Cody Ross got his first hit and run batted in of the season on a single in the second.
