Going into the Tommy La Stella Jersey bottom of the eighth inning, the Braves had a one-run lead and Jim Johnson was given the ball. By the time the eighth inning was over, the Mariners had scored five runs in that frame alone and were on their way to an eventual 9-6 victory. Things started well Munenori Kawasaki Womens Jersey enough for Atlanta in this one. The Braves recorded three straight hits to start the game, with the third hit being an RBI from Freddie Freeman that put the Braves on the board. Nick Markakis hit a sacrifice fly later on in the inning to make it 2-0. Any hopes of R.A. Dickey Mark Grace Jersey completely shutting down the Mariners came to a close by the time the top of the second inning rolled around. Kyle Seager got things going by hitting a blooper that just eluded the reach of any Braves player. Eventually Kosuke Fukudome Youth Jersey Guillermo Heredia hit a sacrifice fly to put Seattle on the board, and then Erasmo Ramirez picked tonight of all nights to get his first career hit and RBI in the same swing. Ramirez’s RBI tied the game up at two, but it wouldn’t stay tied for long as the Braves would manufacture a run in the bottom half of the second inning to go ahead again.
