This wasn't one of the better weekend's for the Braves, as Atlanta lost two out of three and lost Brandon Beachy for at least a couple of weeks. Some notes:

Randall Delgado shined on Sunday, allowing two runs and three hits while striking out six and walking just one. Unfortunately, Atlanta couldn't score any runs to help him out.

Baltimore shut the Braves out on Saturday and Sunday, the first time Atlanta has been shutout in back-to-back games since 2009.

Much of the Braves success offensively has started with Michael Bourn and Martin Prado. The Orioles managed to shut them down this weekend, as the duo went 4-22 at the dish with two walks and four strikeouts.

Jason Hammel was impressive on Saturday, firing a complete game shutout while holding Atlanta hitless for 6.2 innings. His turnaround since getting out of Coors Field has been fun to watch.

Jason Heyward was the only Brave to record a hit in each of the three games. He broke up Hammel's no-no with a single to left in the seventh inning of game two.

Dan Uggla and Chipper both managed to go hitless during the series, although Chipper only played in two games of it. Atlanta can't afford for that to happen.

Andrelton Simmons had a rare error on Friday that cost the Braves a couple of runs, but the rest of his weekend was fantastic. He recorded three hits, including a home run on Friday to lead Atlanta to a win. On Sunday, he made a fantastic diving stop and throw to first on an Adam Jones grounder.

The Braves went 1-10 with runners in scoring positon during the three-game series.
