Braves beat the heat, and Nationals’ Strasburg

The Braves know one way to get Stephen Strasburg now. Draw him into town on the hottest day on record in Atlanta history and ambush him.

The Nationals ace lasted only three innings in the triple-digit heat Saturday afternoon, leaving the game pale and dizzy. By then the Braves had worked ahead of him with a three-run inning on their way to a 7-5 win.

The Braves won for the first time three games against Strasburg this season, and they’ll take it any way they can get it. Trying to hold steady until the All-Star break, they won for the first time in the past eight starts with either Mike Minor or Randall Delgado pitching, and only the second time in seven meetings with the Nationals this season.

“They’ve got great pitching, a great lineup, but so do we,” said Dan Uggla, who put the Braves ahead of Strasburg 3-2 with an RBI double in the third inning. “And it’s time we turned the corner with what’s been going on against them.”

The Braves scored a season-high seven runs on Nationals pitching to move back within 3 ½ games of their N.L. East lead. They used it all to hold off a late run after the Nats rallied from 7-2 down with three runs in the sixth and seventh.

But the Braves set the tone early with back-to-back walks by Michael Bourn and Martin Prado in the first and third innings, driving Strasburg’s pitch count up. He had 24 pitches after the first inning, 43 after the second, and 67 when he came out of the game after drawing a walk while batting in the fourth inning.

At the 4:08 p.m. first pitch Saturday, the temperature was announced at 104 degrees, but a gauge indicated on the field it was pushing 120. Strasburg received three bags of IV fluid after he left the game.

“After the second inning he wasn’t even speaking to (pitching coach Steve) McCatty and he was white in the face,” Nationals manager Davey Johnson told reporters. “(After the third) he went in the runway and was breathing pretty heavy. It was pretty scary, and he wasn’t talking too good.”

When Johnson went to tell home plate umpire Marvin Hudson that Chien-Ming Wang was coming into the game, Hudson told him Strasburg had appeared dizzy at the plate.

Strasburg is a native of San Diego and not as used to the heat. Minor, who grew up in Chapel Hill, Tenn., kept cool by drinking a sport beverage after every inning and resting in the air-conditioned tunnel.

The Braves felt good about him pitching into the sixth inning, much less holding down a 7-2 lead along the way.

“He competed his butt off today and gave everything he had,” Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said. “Today 80 something pitches might equal about 140, the way the weather was. I thought for his psyche and his confidence, we took a step forward with him today.”

One thing the Braves haven’t got from Minor lately is damage control like he worked in the third inning, when he got a double-play ball to end a bases-loaded threat, and a shutdown inning in the fourth, after his offense hadn’t given him his first lead of the day 3-2.

“It’s just an up and down year right now for me,” said Minor, now 4-6 with a 6.20 ERA. “I’m just trying to do my best every time I go out there and try to give the team a chance to win.”

Minor left Kris Medlen work to do after a walk and a double in the seventh and both of his runners scored, leaving him four runs in five-plus innings. Medlen allowed a run of his own and left a runner for Chad Durbin, who loaded the bases on two walks before getting his groundout. Eric O’Flaherty and Craig Kimbrel made it seven in a row retired from there.

“You can’t give up a pitch in the middle of the plate,” Durbin said. “So you’re throwing to the corners and trusting it’s going to work out at some point.”

Bourn and Prado reached base seven times between them, and the Braves got run-scoring doubles from Bourn, Uggla, Jason Heyward and Juan Francisco. Andrelton Simmons went 3-for-4 for his eighth multi-hit game in his past 16 games.

Does Gonzalez ever learn? Christ, that’s the second time in two days where we have had a runner(s) on second (and first) with no outs and Gonzalez completely ignores the situation, as well as who’s out there on the mound. Bottom First, and we’re down by a run. Strasburg is pitching, but he walks Bourn and Prado. Okay, so we’ve got a man on second and first with NO OUTS and we’re down by a run. For God sake, Fredi, BUNT those runners over! At this point of the game, you can only assume that it’s going to be a low scoring game. I know Heyward has been hot lately, but c’mon, you HAVE to get those runners over. But nope, Gonzalez let’s Heyward swing away and he strikes out, only to have Freeman smoke a ball deep to the warning track… but oh yeah, those runners are still on first and second! Bourn tags and advances to third and Prado remains on first, but now there’s two out. And of course, Uggla back in the 5 spot (because surely that one day of rest will set him straight), looks at a third called-strike to end the inning with two left on base. I’m sick of this s–t! Wren needs to either give Gonzalez a reality check and inform him that this isn’t little league, or he needs to let Gonzalez go and find someone that can breath life into this club and get things done on and off the field. Gonzalez “The Traditionalist” and this young team just don’t mix, I’m sorry. We’re lucky the heat got to Strasburg, because if it hadn’t… in all likelihood, this game would have had a completely different ending.

Bunting should be done sparingly. Last night in the 9th inning would have been a good spot for one. At that point you’re just trying to avoid losing, so playing for one run makes sense, especially given Hinske’s major struggles of late.

But you never want to take the bat out of your best hitters’ hands, particularly when they have a chance to do damage with multiple runners on base.

So?

M4, I had mixed feelings on not bunting in the 1st inning today, I can see the point of letting him hit away… but not bunting in the 9th inning last night was atrocious…a simply inexcusable, atrocious error by Gonzalez that could very well have cost them the game. A look at the standings shows how important every game is this year (as if last year wasn’t a good enough lesson in that). I didn’t read last night’s game stories but if Dave O’ and others aren’t blasting that lack of a bunt attempt, then they are going way too soft on the manager.

if hinske did his job and hit it to the right side, which is what he does, then Freeman gets over. I wouldn’t have minded the bunt, and yes, i would have preferred it, but you have to place some blame on the players. It’s hard to manage when they can’t get it done

Concerning not bunting in the 9th last night with a runner on 2B and no outs, and one run behind, here is the question DOB asked FG after the game, “The way your bench is composed, is there much you can do besides have Hinske swing away?” What kind of ridiculous softball question is that? Talk about a leading question to make it easy for him! Why not just come straight forward and say “why didn’t you bunt in that situation with Hudson (3-27 on SACs) or Jurrgens(3-11 on SACs), especially since Hinske has done nothing so far(0-160 in SAC situations).? Those post game conferences have gotten to be a joke after a major screw up by FG.

“But you never want to take the bat out of your best hitters’ hands, particularly when they have a chance to do damage with multiple runners on base.”

I’m pretty sure most of you would be singing a different tune if Strasburg had absolutely dominated us the rest of the game. With the kind of offense the Braves have, and the kind of pitcher Strasburg is, that could have been the only chance for us to score some runs. I know we like to think our hitters can get things done when there’s RISP, but the fact is, they’re really not very reliable in those situations. I’ll go ahead and leave it alone, though.

Kudos to Minor. The kid deserves credit for not folding when many here were impatient.

He out pitched Strasburg today in the toughest conditions of the year. He out pitched Sabathia in Atlanta. He’s 4-6 and getting better. His June ERA is below 3.6 I’ll take his stuff and effort in this his first full year in the rotation.

Impatient? Minor isn’t a rookie, he’s pitched enough in the majors to know what is expected of him. I haven’t seen any improvement from him in terms of consistency… if anything, he’s only getting worse, as is Delgado. Minor only got the “W” today because of Strasburg’s struggles with the heat and because his guys backed him up with good defense.

I stand corrected on Strausburg. That much physical evidence indicates at least heat exhaustion and possibly the onset of heat stroke. So, it was totally right to take him out of the game and give him an IV. The amazing thing is to hear about all that and yet see the kid protest his removal so stridently. The kid’s got one heck of a competitive spirit in him!

Why some pundits have a fascination with giving up an out by bunting completely denies thevfact that over the long haul it is a losing proposition. There is just a ton of data proving this case.i don’t know if fredi is an empiricist or not, but he is doing the right thing.

Minor pitched well, Medlen concerned me though. Not sure if it’s lack of reps or bad mechanics but definitely getting too much of the plate today. Our middle relief (Medlen/Durbin) is a little Jekyll and Hyde – we never know what we’re going to get. Good to see Venters starting to round into form.

Paul, there are times when you do bunt runners over. Being at home and down a run in the eighth inning with runners at first and second with no outs is precisely when you do it. Having the last at bat means you are going for the tie. Getting a base hit is a bonus to score the tying run. Also, if the visiting team walks the bases loaded, that gives you another way to score the tying run.

Getting a runner at third with less than two outs is a mathematically superior move. Getting him to second base with one out is mathematically less superior. Scoring that tying run via a balk, passed ball, wild pitch, squeeze bunt, sac fly, or sac grounder are valid considerations.

“Minor only got the “W” today because of Strasburg’s struggles with the heat and because his guys backed him up with good defense.”

That comment is almost as bad as, “We only won today because they lost” or “We won because they scored less runs than us”. Might be true but pointing out a side dish of the obvious with your blatant attempts to show your stupidity in a three course meal are less than satisfying. I would politely ask for a refund for time wasted reading your comments good sir.

Fredi commits many dim-witted blunders, mostly with bullpen management, but not bunting his NL Player of the Week in the 3 hole with 1st and 2nd no outs in the first inning is certainly not one of them. If anything, fredi has been criticized for being too conservative and favouring bunting to ill effect in those situations in the past.

Bunting there is an egregious error in any case, but especially with Minor on the mound, who will likely need at least 5 runs of support to get a win the way he has been throwing it.

There is oh so much to criticize fredi about, but if he had bunted in that spot frank wren should have phoned down to the dugout right then and sent him on his way. This just goes to show you that no matter what you do, you are always ticking someone off somewhere.

m4 not sound move at all

First you are assuming that Minor is going to match Strasburg with a low scoring performance as well. Recent games would show otherwise although he did pitch good today. So taking a strategy of scoring very few runs to support Minor not sound from that standpoint.

Second Heyward is our hottest hitter and FG has done right thing getting him to 3 hole. Bunt could derail big inning. Also the righty vs lefty works in our favor.

Third you don’t even know if the bunt will be successful. Heyward is never asked to bunt and BP bunting different than game bunting.

Fourth Nats would want to pitch to not very hot Uggla. They would have pitched around FF and gone after Uggla which could very easily have left you with needing a 2 out hit to score.

Good try on strategy but Fredi got this one right. No manager in MLB bunts there.

M4,

I’m with you on the bunt. Just for kicks, for a few games last season, I kept up with how often the Braves failed to score in an inning when they had a bunt opportunity. Turns out they failed to score almost 70% of the time when they swung away in such an inning. Not real scientific, but it shows the value of a bunt.

I’m old school. Bunt the runner(s) over and all you need is a ground ball or flyout to score the run.

I believe this team can get over the top if they trade for Zack Greinke. He is the ace our staff needs. 9-2 record; .230 ERA; 117 WHIP. Only 28 years old and coming into his prime. We must be able to sign him for 5 years at 20 million a year (Chipper and Lowe are costing us 24 million this year). Then we have a rotation that is very good this year and for years to come: Greinke, Hudson, Hanson, JJ, and Minor or Delgado. Next year we probably lose JJ or Hudson, but add back Beachy. Milwalkee needs a SS and pitching, so I would offer them Pastornicky+ either Minor, Delgado, or Tehran+ another lower grade pitching prospect( someone like Spuill). The key to the deal is signing Greinke to the extension. I think this is very possible, because I dont think Greinke wants to play somewhere like N.Y.

@lpt nation – the braves were said to be looking for a “mat latos” sort of return for jurrjens which shows that they still considered him to have value. the main reason for trading him though would be to free up salary room, which makes sense. if so, the braves could’ve picked up an oswalt,etc and gotten the benefits of a trade as well. Anyways, its all just speculation. You are talking about trades that never happened because both parties never agreed to them. Why question Wren’s credibility on trades that he never made? And anyways, a GM is suppose to look at all possibilities.

And for clarity…Wren inquired on Adam Jones but the orioles wanted prado, jurrjens, and two other premium guys. Obviously, Wren declined

I really hope that the Sheets signing is not the pitcher that the Braves are counting on to help them this season. The dude is not even close to being the pitcher he was with the Brewers, and he never will be again. He is 33 years old with a lot of miles and surgeries on that right arm, if this is the only pitching deal the Braves make, the entire front office should be fired as soon as the Braves final game comes to a end, if not sooner.

nothing wrong with signing ben sheets. andy pettitte (before his recent ankle injury) came out of retirement and helped the yankees a great deal. Last season, lance berkman bounced back and helped the cards, in 2009, aubrey huff returned to form and helped the giants win. Nothing wrong with seeing if the guy can still be dominant. The braves don’t lose anything by signing him.

BravesfaninWis

Now on the other hand, if the Braves make a big trade for say Matt Garza or someone like that, and their plan is to get rid of 2 of the 3 of Minor, Jurrgens, or Delgado, and replace 2 of those spots with Garza and Sheets, well then that could potentially be a low cost/high reward deal.

If our staff looked like this

Hudson
Hanson
Garza
Jurrgens
Sheets

we might be ok. Key word there is “might” I am sure that Garza would be light years better in our rotation then either Minor or Delgado, and a healthy Sheets could easily take over the production that Minor or Delgado have given us (not hard at all). So that would statistically make us a better pitching staff.
