The first 20,000 fans at this evening's Braves/Padres game were rewarded with a Chipper Jones bobblehead doll; everyone else had to settle for fireworks. Jones, the honoree, provided the pyrotechnics by going "double-yicketty"
The aged one homered in his first two-at bats of the evening-the first multi-homer game he's had since 2009. The second home run of the evening was number 466 of his career and hit number 2700.
Oh, yeah- one other thing. Kris Medlen was in da house as well-throwing his first career complete game (a shutout). It was the fifteenth consecutive game that the Braves have won with Medlen on the mound as the starter, tying the franchise record set by John Smoltz during his 1996 Cy Young campaign.
If Atlanta should decide to go back to a 5-man rotation come September, who does Fredi put in the pen?
