Braves RP Jim Johnson gives up two costly runs in Friday's loss
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Braves reliever Jim Johnson had a rough eighth inning in Friday's loss to the Giants. Johnson, who came into the game with the Giants up 2-1, proceeded to give up two more runs, as the Giants won 4-2.

Though he wasn't given a loss or a blown save, Johnson's poor performance could have prevented the Braves from a comeback. Had the Giants not scored in the eighth, Freddie Freeman's ninth-inning home run would have tied the game up at two. 

In that eighth inning, Johnson gave up two hits and two runs. He walked two and hit a batter, as his ERA rose to 3.09. The outing put an end to his nine-game scoreless streak.

Braves 1B Freddie Freeman hits solo home run on Friday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman hit his first home run in nearly a month in Friday's 4-2 loss to the Giants. Freeman came up in the top of the ninth with his team down by three. He proceeded to take closer Santiago Casilla deep for a solo home run, his sixth of the season. But it wasn't enough as the Giants were able to hold on for the victory.

The home run was Freeman's only hit of the game, and he has now collected just eight hits in 36 at-bats over his last 10 games.

Braves SP Mike Foltynewicz gets tough-luck loss on Friday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Braves starter Mike Foltynewicz went 6 2/3 strong innings in the 4-2 loss to the Giants on Friday. The young right-hander allowed two runs on five hits, walked one and struck out eight. The only runs he gave up came on a two-run home run from Buster Posey in the first inning.

Strangely, Foltynewicz actually struck out three batters in his final inning, but two of them reached on wild pitches. Luis Avilan was called upon to get the final out of the seventh. 

Nevertheless, it was still an impressive outing for the 24-year-old. Foltynewicz will take a 3-2 record and 3.96 ERA into his next start, scheduled for Wednesday in Arizona.

Braves CF Cameron Maybin has promising matchup Friday
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Braves center fielder Cameron Maybin is finally slowing down at the plate after a nine-game hitting streak. But maybe the sight of Giants right-hander Tim Hudson on the mound Friday night will get him going again.

Maybin is 10-for-25 lifetime against Hudson with one home run and six RBI. He is 3-for-14 in his last four games.

Braves SP Shelby Miller allows one run in Thursday's loss
by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com

Despite only surrendering one run during Thursday's game against the Giants, Braves pitcher Shelby Miller received a loss for his effort.

Miller (5-2) tossed seven solid innings and allowed one run on five hits during the 7-0 loss. He did not walk a batter and struck out one, which tied his season low. His lone mistake was giving up a home run to Brandon Belt in the sixth inning. It was the first home run hit off Miller since April 30.

"Tough hit to give up at that point of the ballgame. I can't do that right there," Miller said. "I'm taking the blame on that loss."

The quality start was his eighth in a row. Miller has allowed a total of four runs in his last five starts. His next expected start is scheduled for Tuesday at Arizona.
