DETROIT Kris Medlen and the Atlanta Braves jerseys were probably due for a rough stretch. It’s happening now for a team that looked like the class of the National League less than two weeks ago.
Medlen allowed a tiebreaking homer to cheap Omar Infante jersey in the fourth inning, and the Braves jerseys lost to the Detroit Tigers jerseys, 7 4, on Saturday.
“Hanging curveball to Peralta can’t give him one there and that pitch to Omar that was out over the plate,” Medlen said. “All the singles they got were just fastballs that were running back over the plate.”
cheap Rick Porcello jersey (1 2) bounced back from a nightmarish start last weekend for the Tigers jerseys. He allowed three runs in 61/3 innings. He didn’t make it through the first last Saturday at Los Angeles, when he gave up nine runs to the Angels jerseys.
Atlanta’s cheap Justin Upton jersey hit his major league leading 12th homer in the eighth, but Infante doubled home a run in the bottom half and scored to make it 7 4.
Jose Valverde pitched a perfect ninth for his second save.
“They got a couple of runs gave them a three run lead in the ninth,” Atlanta manager Fredi Gonzalez said. “It’s a different game than a one run lead.”
Medlen became a regular starter for the Braves jerseys during the last couple months of last season. He was terrific down the stretch in 2012, and it looked as if this year he’d picked up where he left off.
But Peralta opened the scoring with his two run shot in the second. Atlanta answered the following inning, when Porcello walked Dan Uggla with the bases loaded, allowed another run on Upton’s grounder and gave up an RBI single by cheap Freddie Freeman jersey.
The Tigers jerseys tied it in the bottom of the third. With men on first and third and one out, cheap Miguel Cabrera jersey hit a grounder up the middle. Shortstop cheap Andrelton Simmons jersey shoveled the ball to second, but Uggla wasn’t able to hold on. The play was scored a single, and a run came home.
Infante’s homer came on an 0 2 pitch after cheap Alex Avila jersey drew a two out walk to keep the fourth inning going.
“I stayed back and waited for a slider or changeup,” Infante said. “He threw a fastball and I made a good reaction.”
cheap Joaquin Benoit jersey allowed Upton’s homer in the eighth, but Detroit came back with a couple insurance runs. Infante’s one out double made it 6 4, and after he stole third, cheap Austin Jackson jersey walked. Cabrera’s two out single to center gave the Tigers jerseys a three run lead.
The Tigers jerseys were prepared to let Valverde leave as a free agent after he struggled at the end of last season, but they brought him back on a minor league deal and eventually called him up this week.
Medlen (1 3) and fellow starter Paul Maholm were breezing through the early part of the season for the Braves jerseys before coming to Detroit. Then Maholm was knocked around in a 10 0 loss to the Tigers jerseys on Friday, and Medlen allowed 10 hits in 5 1 3 innings the following afternoon.
NOTES: Cabrera extended his hitting streak to 11 games. . Atlanta had been 15 0 when hitting at least one homer, but that streak came to an end Saturday. .
