Know Your Foe #41: If Only The Rockies Had A Sherman, Or The Braves Visit Coors Field

New, 5 comments

Atlanta Braves (73-51, 1st NL East)

Last Series vs. Rockies: 2-1 series victory in Atlanta

Well, we all know the two things that happened back in April when the first part of this season series took place. One was spectacular: Ubaldo Jimenez's no-hitter. The other was spectacularly awful: a blown call on what should have been the game-ending double play to give the Rockies a road series victory.

Last Two Series Results: 2-1 series victory over Washington; 2-1 series victory over Cubbies

Tim Hudson allowed two runs in seven innings on the middle game of the series against the Nats. However, he didn't get the win as Jason Heyward drove in the winning run in the bottom of the ninth. The Nats got to Derek Lowe the next day, tagging him for four runs. Jair Jurrjens also took a no-decision when he started the next day and allowed three runs in seven innings. The team slaughtered the Cubs on Sunday 16-5.

Monday-Wednesday: 3-game series @ Coors Field
