Wednesday night quick hits

It's been strange watching the Braves lately. Their pitching, which was once their greatest strength, has become a glaring weakness. That being said, lets dive in to the Wednesday night recap...

Starting in Atlanta, Braves starter Jeff Bennett fell to 0-4 on the year, lasting just 2 innings against the visiting Cubs. If were slots, Bennett would be rich; he allowed 7 runs - all 7 earned - on 7 hits. Braves management is probably not as amused as I am . . . Phillies starter Cole Hammels had a dominating performance against the Marlins; he struck out 13 over 8 innings of work, but watched it go to waste when Tom Gordon walked 2 and surrendered 2 hits in the 9th before giving up a walk-off grand slam to Dan Uggla . . . Reds starter Johnny Cueto, who has been a model of inconsistency so far, struggled against the Reds. He walked 8 over 5 innings pitched, also allowing 6 runs on 5 hits . . . B.J Ryan picked up his third loss of the season for Toronto to the Mariners, walking 2 and allowing a hit and a run in two-thirds of an inning.
