Braves Go Down 4-0 in Final Sun Life Game to Vazquez and the Fish

The Braves couldn't figure out their old teammate as the Marlins flipped the script on the Braves tonight. After a big 4-0 win last night, the Braves lost by the same score tonight. Javy Vazquez was terrific for the Fish, and despite an above average start by D-Lowe, there was really no contest at Sun Life Stadium tonight.

Vazquez retired the first ten batters that he faced on the night before Prado was able to line a good pitch off of the plate into right field in the fourth. Atlanta mustered up a threat in the seventh behind a big Jason Heyward double off of the top of the left center field wall with McCann aboard, and again in the ninth behind two Leo Nunez walks, but never managed to send any runners across the plate.

Derek Lowe pitched just fine, but it wasn't going to cut it against tonight's opponent. A big double by Mike Stanton in the second inning drove in the Marlins first run. A Brett Hayes homer in the fifth, a sac fly in the sixth, and a LoMo homer in the eighth accounted for the Marlins' final three runs. None of which mattered.

The Braves will now have to do their best against the pesky Nationals beginning Friday, sending Huddy to the mound against Stephen Strasburg. The Mets still lead the Cardinals 4-3 as of right....NOW.
