Kris Medlen did not get the win on Saturday night but the Braves starter held the Dodgers to one unearned run over seven innings of work in a 3-1 win.
Cory Gearrin took over for Medlen in the eighth and earned the win after the Braces scored three in the bottom of the inning.
Evan Gattis hit a two run home run off of Kenley Jansen in the eighth inning to give...
Today we wore the gray away unis of the Atlanta Black Crackers, and I love these as much as the white ones we wore a couple of years ago. Here are a few pictures...
What a perfect uniform.

Taking three cuts following the Braves' 7-4 loss to the Tigers at Comerica Park on Saturday.
1. Has Medlen come back down to earth?
Kris Medlen got off to an impressively odd start, scoring his first out before pitching a strike.
He walked Austin Jackson on four pitches before picking him off. Medlen now has 12 pickoffs since the start of last season, a figure only bested...
Kris Medlen allowed only an unearned run in seven innings Tuesday night, and the Atlanta Braves earned their fifth consecutive victory by beating the punchless Miami Marlins 3-2.
The Braves improved to 7-1, their best start since 2007. The Marlins fell to 1-7 with their fourth consecutive defeat, and they're off to their worst start since the 1998 team began the season 1-11...

Here are three things we learned from Atlanta's 3-2 victory over Miami on Tuesday, before a subdued crowd at Marlins Park:
1. Just wait until Kris Medlen recaptures that late-season mojo of last year
From a distance, Medlen's cumulative numbers after two starts (1-1, 1.50 ERA) look superb. But he has yet to find a true groove with strikeout-to-walk ratio (45) or WHIP ...
The Atlanta Braves continued their torrid start winning their fifth straight game on Tuesday behind a strong outing from starter Kris Medlen.
In seven innings of work Medlen allowed one run on three hits and a walk as the Braves defeated the Marlins 3-2.
The Braves jumped out to an early 2-0 lead when catcher Evan Gattis hit his second career home run in the first inning...
The Braves had planned for Kris Medlin to work five innings on Wednesday but opted to remove the right hander after he was hit with a second comebacker in his start against the Marlins.
Medlen held the Marlins scoreless while allowing just two hits. He struck out three while lowering his ERA to 2.63 this spring.
After being removed from the game, Medlen opted to hang around the dugout...
LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. Kris Medlen stepped off the elevator onto the mezzanine level of Champions Stadium, where a few of his Braves teammates were waiting in line to be shuffled around for photo day.
A rack of jerseys and a table of hats were waiting as the teams public relations staff helped each player find their size; the Braves around Medlen were each pulling on their jerseys...
Braves starting pitcher Kris Medlen had a good day on Tuesday. That was the day that the 26-year-old right-hander was named the National League's pitcher of the month, but that wasn't all. It was also the day that Medlen found out that his unborn child was going to be a boy, which he had apparently been rooting for. The way that he broke the news to his Twitter followers...
I have to admit. I wasn't impressed with Kris Medlen the first time I saw him pitch.
To be fair, it was his big league debut, so he deserved to be little nervous.
So on May 21, 2009, Medlen walked to the Turner Field mound for the first time.
The Colorado Rockies were in the opposing dugout and Medlen had been called on to replace starter Jo-Jo Reyes.
