Braves' A.J. Pierzynski homers, drives in two in victory
by Dave Peters | CBSSports.com

Braves catcher A.J. Pierzynski homered off of pitcher Tom Koehler in the seventh inning of a 2-0 win over the Marlins. Pierzynski's home run produced the only runs scored in the game on Wednesday. 

''To come in here and play against a team people are expecting big things out of, and to play the way we did, hopefully it carries over,'' Pierzynski said.

''For my first hit as a Brave to be a home run is pretty cool,'' Pierzynski said. ''But more important is the way we pitched tonight. Our guys were lights out from Shelby all the way to Grilli. That was the biggest thing. I'm so proud the way we pitched, not only tonight but the whole series. We did a really good job containing them, making big pitches in big situations.''

Braves to start Maybin, Gomes, Pierzynski Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez plans to start center fielder Cameron Maybin, left fielder Jonny Gomes and catcher A.J. Pierzynski Wednesday, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

The Marlins are opening the season with three righties on the mound, limiting Gonzalez's options in building his lineup. However, all three players are set to play Wednesday, and Maybin and Gomes could be back in the lineup Friday, with the team set to face lefty Jon Niese.
