Game 86 Recap: Braves 4, Rockies 1

A Frenchy-less game, and a Frenchy-less win. Derek Lowe found his ability to pitch again, putting in a strong effort and limiting the damage through 6 innings. If not for a one-hour rain delay, he may have had enough to go into the eighth inning.

Garret Anderson provided some runs in the first inning on an almost-homerun double to right field that plated two. The Rockies starter settled down after that, holding the Braves scoreless until the eighth, when Diory Hernandez (don't call his name very often) added a two-run double of his own off the Rockies pen.

Rafael Soriano picked up the save, but the real save of the night should go to Eric O'Flaherty. With runners on second and third and one out in the eighth inning, O'Flaherty came in to face the Rockies two toughest hitters, Todd Helton and Brad Hawpe, and struck them both out. That was a critical moment in the game and EOF came up big.
