News
Braves right-hander Shelby Miller continued to fly under the radar as one of the hottest pitchers in baseball Saturday night.

Miller managed his fourth straight strong start and third consecutive victory by going his typical six innings and giving up two runs on three hits in Philadelphia. He walked two and struck out three.

All was not peachy in the fourth inning when Miller yielded a two-run homer to Ryan Howard that broke a scoreless tie. But his teammates scored three in the seventh to give him the win.

Miller, whose ERA rose to 2.03, will try for his fourth win in a row Thursday against Cincinnati.

Grilli needed just 13 pitches to dispose of Philadelphia's hitters in the inning, including a strikeout of Ryan Howard. Grilli now boasts a 1.29 ERA with 11 strikeouts in seven innings of work.

For the first time this season, right fielder Nick Markakis will bat leadoff for the Braves on Saturday in Philadelphia.

Markakis has hit leadoff in past seasons while with the Orioles.

News
Braves outfielder Jonny Gomes was in the starting lineup Thursday against the Mets for the fourth time in five games. Although, his history against Mets starting pitcher Bartolo Colon probably had something to do with it.

Gomes, who is better against left-handed pitchers, is batting .381 (8 for 21) with one double, one triple, three home runs and three RBI in his career against Colon.

For the season, however, Gomes is batting .158 (3 for 19) against right-handers, as opposed to .500 (3 for 6) against lefties.

Braves infielder Alberto Callaspo hit a solo home run in a pinch-hit appearance Sunday in his team's 5-4 loss to the Phillies.

On the same day that manager Fredi Gonzalez indicated that Jace Peterson would serve as the team's primary second baseman, Callaspo, who has also seen plenty of time at third base, swatted a pinch-hit home run off Phillies closer Jonathan Papelbon. It was the first homer of the year for Callaspo, who has hit .261/.314/.348 with four RBI in 46 at-bats.

Wood yielded five hits and a walk in the outing.

"Woody was good," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "He mixed his pitches well. His secondary pitch, he threw for strikes. Really, everybody gave us a good opportunity out of that bullpen to get that win."

Wood's next start is set for Wednesday against the Nationals.

News
Braves pitcher Trevor Cahill took the loss Sunday, giving up four earned runs on five hits and three walks in six innings while striking out two in his team's 5-4 defeat against the Phillies.

Cahill (0-3) put himself in an early hole, serving up a three-run home run in the bottom of the first inning to fall behind 3-2. The Braves were able to tie the game in the third inning, but the starter surrendered an RBI triple, putting his team behind for good.

"Any time you lose a ballgame, it's tough," said Cahill to MLB.com. "But it was nice to go out there and at least go six innings and not feel like you're a burden on the bullpen. The best part about it was I was able to get up six times. One pitch hurt me in the first inning, but I was able to kind of bounce back after that."

Cahill has posted an 8.03 ERA and 5:7 K:BB ratio in 12 1/3 innings over three starts. His next start is scheduled for Friday against the Reds at home.

Braves starting pitcher Julio Teheran couldn't go five innings during a 6-3 loss to the Mets on Thursday. The right-hander allowed four runs on three hits and five walks, while striking out five in 4 1/3 innings.

Teheran (2-1) ran into early trouble Thursday. He walked the bases loaded with one out in the bottom of the first inning before Daniel Murphy cleared the bases with a double. 

The Braves rallied to tie the game at three before New York took the lead for good in the fifth inning. Teheran allowed a leadoff single to Curtis Granderson in the fifth and was removed after striking out Juan Lagares. Reliever Ian Thomas then loaded the bases with two walks before Sugar Ray Marimon walked home the go-ahead run, which was credited to Teheran.

Teheran has allowed nine earned runs in his last two starts (0-1) after allowing two earned runs in his first two starts (2-0). He will be back on the mound Tuesday against the Nationals.

News
Braves catcher Christian Bethancourt knows manager Fredi Gonzalez has tough decisions to make. One of those decisions has been slotting veteran A.J. Pierzynski in the starting lineup more often this season than originally expected. Bethancourt is rolling with the punches and still thinks he can earn a starting role, according to MLB.com.

"You've got to respect the manager's decision," Bethancourt said. "He puts whoever he wants in the lineup. So, I've just got to be ready and wait for my opportunity. If he says I have to earn it, I will do my best to earn it. I have no problem with that."

Gonzalez has an idea of what he wants to do with Bethancourt.

"We want to give [Bethancourt] an opportunity, but the other guy, you put him in there every single time, and he just keeps hitting," Gonzalez said.

Bethancourt is hitting just .147 with two RBI in 34 at-bats this season.

News
Veteran A.J. Pierzynski is not supposed to be the starting catcher for the Braves. But maybe he is. Sort of.

The ambiguity is coming from Pierzynski himself, who seems to be wresting the job away from Christian Bethancourt. The former not only played Wednesday night, but also in an afternoon game Thursday.

Pierzynski has simply outperformed Bethancourt at the plate. His three-hit game Wednesday raised his average to .391 with three home runs, five RBI and an .826 slugging percentage. He's on a six-game hitting streak and is one start on the year behind Bethancourt, who was the declared starter before the season began.

"He's swinging it," Fredi Gonzalez told the Atlanta Journal Constitution. "...He's not your normal prototypical catcher-backup guy that'll only catch 20, 30 games a year."

News
Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez indicated Sunday that he's returning to his initial plan to use infielder Jace Peterson as his primary second baseman, MLB.com reports.

Peterson has shared time at second base with Alberto Callaspo, who has also made eight starts at third base, and Phil Gosselin, leading to Peterson seeing just 11 of a possible 17 starts at the position. He's seen action all over the starting lineup, batting first or second in four of the team's first five games but spending most of his time batting seventh or eighth as of late.

Peterson has hit just .171/.239/.220 in 41 at-bats. He's starting at second base and batting sixth in Sunday's matchup with the Phillies, in which the Braves are underdogs (+100).
