Braves Squander Lead-Off Hit In Third

Bottom of the third (Cards 0, Braves 2):

Bourn leads off the third with a single just to the left of the second base bag. Prado takes an awkward swing at an outside change, striking out. It looked like he might have been thinking about bunting Bourn over early in the at-bat. Heyward swings at the first pitch and pops up weakly to left field. Chipper gets jammed on a pitch and grounds out to second for the final out. Braves needed to do a better job of moving Bourn over that inning, and they squander a lead-off single.
