Smoltz is Smoltz

John Smoltz pitched a complete game shutout to bring a little order to the Braves starting rotation. It was the first win by a Braves starting pitcher this year. And he was definitely the Smoltz of old in the 2-0 win, which the Braves needed to gain a game on the Mets who lost last night.
Now I know it is early, but my stepfather sees no problem with telling me everyday how far ahead the Mets are, so it is not to earl y to worry about it.
Adam LaRoche collected two hits, including a solo homer, and Jeff Francoeur added a run-scoring single.
LaRoche has carried his weight all season and Francoeur has broken out of his slump in a major way this week. Which I knew he would.
The Braves face off with the Padres today at 1:05. John Thomson and his 2.08 ERA get the start.
