Game 36 Recap: Diamondbacks 12, Braves 0

Of all the players to get fooled on the fake-to-third-throw-to-first trick, Chipper Jones is not the one any of would have expected. But hey, Ricky Henderson got fooled by it once too. It was all downhill after that first inning double play, where Chipper and Yunel Escobar were eliminated by a move that Bobby Cox believes is a balk.

Arizona's starter Max Scherzer dominated the Braves' lineup, throwing six scoreless innings to record his first Major League win. Ken Kawakami really didn't pitch that poorly, but he wasn't spectacular either, allowing 3 runs in 5 innings while striking out 4.  The Braves' bullpen allowed things to get really out of hand, as James Parr contined to unimpress, allowing 2 runs, Jeff Bennett walked 4 and allowed 1 run, and Buddy Carlyle opened the floodgates, allowing 6 runs in the 9th.
