Braves pitch­ing

The Covington News - - WORLD -

PHOENIX ( AP) — The mo­men­tum of Ari­zona’s three- game sweep in Colorado didn’t carry over at home against At­lanta for the Di­a­mond­backs.

A solid out­ing by starter Bran­don McCarthy didn’t help, ei­ther.

“He gave us a chance to win,” Ari­zona man­ager Kirk Gibson said. “We just couldn’t get enough runs.”

Julio Te­heran pitched seven solid in­nings and Craig Kim­brel got the fi­nal four outs to be­come the Braves’ ca­reer saves leader in a 5-2 vic­tory over the Di­a­mond­backs on Fri­day night.

Kim­brel earned his 16th save of the sea­son ( in 18 tries) and 155th of his ca­reer. That’s one more than John Smoltz.
