Chen Sparkles As O's Take Series In Atlanta

Again, my apologies. My post is a day late and probably a Buck short...but here goes nothing.

That pretty much sums up Atlanta's offense for the second straight game...NOTHING. Wei-Yin Chen pitched seven scoreless innings and the Birds blanked the Braves for the second straight game, winning 2-0.

Chen (7-2) wasn't quite as dominant as Hammel was on Saturday, but the two hurlers now lead the O's with identical records. Chen allowed just six hits and a walk while striking out two on Sunday afternoon, and Jim Johnson pitched a 1-2-3 ninth for his 20th save of the season.

The Birds mustered just four hits but managed to score on a sac fly and a balk.Nothing like playing small-ball in a National League park...

The Birds have now won four straight series but still trail New York by a game and a half in the standings. The Yankees, winners of nine straight, now take on Atlanta and the O's travel to New York to face the Mets. Jake Arrieta takes the mound on Monday night...
