Sheets leads Braves to seventh straight win




From his backyard in Monroe, La. to pitching in a third-deck setting, as Ben Sheets described Turner Field, the former four-time All-Star for the Milwaukee Brewers never flinched.

After two elbow surgeries and two years out of the sport, Sheets returned to the major leagues Sunday with six shutout innings against the Mets to lift his new Braves team to a season-high seventh straight win, 6-1. The Braves used a three-game sweep of the Mets to pull within three games of the first-place Nationals.

“It was pretty incredible,” Sheets said afterward. “Honestly in my mind, two years ago I was done, which was fine. I gave myself ‘coach of the year’ award in youth ball. Somebody asked me ‘Who gives that?’ I said ‘I give it to myself.’”

One of those youth players – his 8-year-old son Seaver – has been encouraging Sheets since March, when he began building his arm back up by pitching to Seaver’s “throwback” machine. When asked about his dad’s effort Sunday, Seaver said it was “good.”

Just good?

“Great,” he said, smiling.

Seaver’s reaction was more enthusiastic later in the clubhouse, when he and his brother Miller, 5, rushed into their father’s arms. For the first time since the middle of 2008, Sheets’ elbow wasn’t bothering him after a game.

“I feel like myself,” said Sheets, who out-dueled Johan Santana for his first win since July 10, 2010 with the Athletics. “That’s one thing I can say I never felt like in Oakland.”

Sheets said he couldn’t help but feel some nerves as he took the ball in the first inning, after Chipper Jones flipped it to him and said “just like riding a bike.”

That’s pretty much how it looked.

Sheets threw a 91 mph strike to Ruben Tejada to start his day, setting up his first strikeout, and finished it with a 91 mph fastball past David Wright for his fifth strikeout. He allowed only two hits in between, walked one, and threw 57 of 88 pitches for strikes.

Sheets faced one jam in those six innings but looked like a man who relished the chance to show he could escape one. After getting Wright to fly out to strand a pair of runners in scoring position in the third inning, Sheets clapped his right hand into his glove as he walked off the mound.

“That was a big moment, a big pitch,” Sheets said. “That pitch could really turn things around.”

It was the first of 10 consecutive Mets set down by Sheets.

The Braves offense, meanwhile, took a while to get rolling against Santana, who was scoreless through four, but once they started they rolled up six runs in the fifth inning. Matt Diaz just needed a little time to get loose. Santana’s recurring nightmare doubled to center to start the inning rally and move to .514 (19-for-37) for his career against the Mets left-hander.

“I feel a lot of pressure against him,” said Diaz, who also made a pair of great catches in left field in the ninth. “Fredi (Gonzalez) plays the matchups, so you feel like you better go out and do the job, especially if you are sitting someone with the power of [Dan] Uggla. There was a lot of pressure there, but it’s a lot of fun too.”

Santana failed to get a strike call on a borderline pitch to Michael Bourn, with runners first and second, and Bourn then drove in a run with a double.

Mets pitching coach Dan Warthen got ejected for arguing with homeplate umpire C.B. Bucknor during a visit to the mound, but the damage was done. Martin Prado drove in a run on sacrifice fly and Jason Heyward, Chipper Jones and Freddie Freeman followed with hits. Freeman broke it open with a three-run home run, his 12th of the season.

“We might have caught some breaks on some pitch calls but so did they at some point,” Diaz said. “We took advantage when we did.”

Sheets, who hadn’t pitched since July 19, 2010, showed that his fastball was back to 90-92 mph, and touched 93 mph a few times to Wright. He also mixed in the curveball he was known for on days like when he struck out 18 Braves in 2004.

“We are ecstatic,” Jones said. “We get contributions like that from him, I see us winning a lot of games here in the second half.”

I turtned to the game and saw Ben Sheets pitching Didn’t know or realize that he was with the Braves at this point in time, but he pitched a whale of a game. And Paul Janiesh at SS. Also didn’t know about the Braves gettting him. Now I would like to know who they traded in order to get Janish.

@ Kendall Jones,

I believe it was Todd Redmond, one of their minor league pitchers who’s made a few stops at the MLB level, who was traded for Janish.

Regarding Sheets, it looks like mutual relief and vindication for him and the Braves. Great job in his first game back helping his new team keep forward momentum in the NL East race!

Welcome to the ATL Mr. Sheets. Fine job. Maybe I was wrong about this signing.

7 game winning streak. That’s pretty good too………BUT……….before we get too impressed with ourselves, I did some checking. Since May 20, the day before the 8 game losing streak, we are 23W and 23L. We need to pick it up considerably from here on out.

K. Jones…..

I you ever want to be informed on your own…….you can go to the Atlanta Braves website (you can Google it if you do not have it on favorites) and check…..TRANSACTIONS…..it will give you the information you need. But the player traded was the minor league pitcher the Braves called up for a day or two recently and then sent him back to G-Braves (Richmond)…..he is out of options after this year and was not coming back to A-Braves this year….Janish was gone after this year in the Reds system as well. Janish will provide a great glove and no bat until Simmons gets back….hopefully this year.

“a shot in the arm”…..is probably not a reference Ben Sheets would use these day…..but I agree. Delgado has a lot of potential…..but it needs to be refined by someone in the minors. I have a feeling it is going to be refined on another team……like the Cubs…..after a trade for Dempster.

Ben Sheets looks like another reclamation project that turns out to be gold, like so many previous examples under Bobby Cox. One of the great things about the Braves organization is the restorative waters found in the special Dasani bottles made just for Leo Mazzone.

Glad I didn’t ask you then, Tampa Gator. That Chipper is a helluva guy isn’t he ? Let’s see he lost his first wife because he knocked up a Hooter’s waitress. I wonder who boinked this time for the mother of 3 youngest children to file for divorce. He is the self appointed leader of this team, but yet he’s averaged playing less than 120 games a year , the last 7 years.

……man….if Sheets pitches anything close to this for the rest of the year…..every other team in baseball is going to be kicking themselves. But I guess he really wanted to pitch for the Braves anyway. He obviously saw the need for an effective starting pitcher. I think his knowledge is going to help some of the younger pitches on the staff as well. I just hope he stays healthy and continues to improve…..Go Braves.

Wow. I thought, and hoped, Sheets would be effective, but he far exceeded my expectations. If he’s durable, he is a huge addition and may make all the difference in the Braves’ year. Janish should have quieted some of his skeptics, too. He made two very nice, tough plays in the field. He didn’t get a hit, but he did score a run after walking. Not a great offensive threat, but he will make some contributions, and he certainly looked as though he belonged on that field.

Go Braves!

Welcome Back Ben Sheets. Nicely done. Good to see Matt Diaz wearing out Santana too. Medlen gives up the only run today, he still concerns me a bit but – it was enough to give Kimbrel the day off, which he probably needed and wanted. Surprised at Varvaro’s performance a little, he looked strong for 2 outs before he started out-thinking himself.

All in all a good day for Braves pitching. You gotta love what 1 – 7 did at the plate today…

Why are we so quick assume that Chipper’s personal situation is caused by some failing on his part?As a guy who found out that my ex-wife was doing extra curricular activities with her personal trainer from the gym, i dont give women the benefit of the doubt any longer. She may have wanted Chipper to quit a couple of years ago, and when he stayed in the game, maybe she retaliated in some way. Smoltz is about as saintly as it gets, and he got divorced. I’m guessing it was because he stayed on the road too long as well. Women rarely communicate with “I’m not happy with you, and I am thinking about meeting a guy from the gym for drinks, just to send you a message”.

Congratulations on the sweep Braves fans. Now you got your payback for that series in New York to start the season. Who would have figured that an old, run down Ben Sheets would have pitched like that. I admit he pitched great against the magnificent Johan Santana.
But have you sent a thank you card to the umpires yet? Spread the word to the rest of MLB. Don’t go to Atlanta if you are looking for a fair game. The umps ripped off the Mets in the 5th inning on Sat., and then today, the umps called the game to the Braves favor again in the 5th. Johan had Janish struck out but the plate ump gives him a walk. Then he has Bourn struck out twice, but the ump kept calling strikes balls and Bourn ends up getting a big hit. Then they throw out out pitching coach! This is after they kicked out our manager on Sat.! Then, even after all that, that crooked eyed ump kept squeezing Johan and more runs scored!
The Mets should file an official protest!!

Burgess, come on. There is no way you can make blanket statements like this and expect to be taken seriously. Women are not angels any more than men are. If you are married, trust but verify, my friend – just like Ronald Reagan vs the Russians. Your wife probably has you fooled because you don’t seem very sharp.
