Pitcher wins, pitcher losses. Brandon Beachy gets a loss after going six and a third innings and allowing two runs — one of them inherited — on three hits. He did walk four, the last of which came around to score.
It didn’t seem likely that the Braves would ever score against Stephen Strasburg, who allowed just four hits in seven innings. Jose Constanza doubled in the third but couldn’t score on Michael Bourn‘s single, and after that they didn’t do much.
In the fifth, Beachy allowed a leadoff homer by Jesus Flores to make it 1-0. After getting the first man in the seventh, he walked the second, and Fredi went to Chad Durbin, of course, who walked the only man he faced. Jonny Venters threw a wild pitch that hit Brian McCann, who had to leave the game, then gave up a hit to make it 2-0. The Braves had a couple of two-out hits against a reliever in the eighth but failed to score, and went 1-2-3 in the ninth.
