braves 10, pirates 2

In which the Braves win their first game, they are now 1-2. On the bright side, three Braves hit home runs: Matt Diaz, Yunel Escobar (of Cuba---baseball is a very multi-cultural enterprise) and Mark Teixeira (new to the team this year, and destined to be a Braves standout). On the other hand, it took seven pitchers to pull off the win (it was a 3-2 game until the bottom of the eighth). It may be a long year in the starting pitching and long and middle relief areas. Can the Braves get into the playoffs? Who knows?

But, hope springs eternal. Go Braves! link
