Braves open Spring Training schedule with a 3-2 loss to the LA Dogers

It's not the way you want to start spring training but then again it's only spring training. The Braves opened up their spring schedule today with a 3-2 loss to the Dodgers. But the loss wasn't that bad as all 3 runs the Dodgers scored were unearned thanks to 3 errrors, one each by Jorge Sosa, Wilson Betemit and Cesar Crespo. At the plate the Braves were led by Todd Pratt who was 1-2 double rbi. The Dodgers scored all 3 in the first two innings, 2 in first, 1 in second. The Braves answered with 1 in the top 2nd and another run in the top 8th but the 3 errors loomed to big to overcome.

The good news here is that the Braves only played 2 regulars on offense with Andruw getting one at bat and Langerhans getting 3 with one hit.

Same two teams will play again on Friday afternoon with Tomko starting for LA and John Thompson for Atlanta.
