• Braves shake up lineup, to bat P Harang 8th

    Pitcher Aaron Harang was batting eighth for Monday night's game against the St. Louis Cardinals. Aaron Harang was pitching like Clayton Kershaw, and we all know that wasn't sustainable. Thus he sat Dan Uggla for the third time in less than a week, moved Justin Upton to second spot and caught everybody's attention by batting Aaron Harang eighth and second baseman Ramiro Pena ninth. The team has been shut out five times and scored only one run in seven games. If not for dominant starting the Braves have won three games 1-0 there would be even louder grumbling about the state of the team. Atlanta scored only 10 runs in its last six games, and the lack of clutch hitting was galling in a weekend sweep by the San Francisco Giants.
