Given a save chance with Jim Johnson needing the day off, Jose Ramirez gave up two runs in the ninth to blow a save Wednesday against the Pirates.

Both Johnson and Arodys Vizcaino had worked the last two days and four of the previous five days, so Ramirez got the call. An overturned call gave the Pirates an infield single to open the inning, and they got another single, a walk and a two-run single afterwards to tie the game. Ramirez probably won't get any additional save chances in the near future.

Josh Collmenter was blasted for seven runs in the 10th to take a loss Wednesday against the Pirates.

The Braves decided not to further tax their bullpen tonight, so Collmenter was left in to finish the inning after giving up three homers. He had a 2.00 ERA in nine innings during April, but he's given up 15 earned runs in eight innings since. He's probably in danger of being DFA'd.

Wilmer Flores went 2-for-4 with three RBI and a run scored in a loss to the Padres on Wednesday.

He stroked a base-loaded double to plate three runs in the third inning, then came around to score on a Curtis Granderson single. He also worked a walk in the ballgame. The 25-year-old Flores now has a .307 batting average with three home runs and 14 RBI in 91 plate appearances.

Jordy Mercer went 3-for-5 with a homer and a walk against the Braves on Wednesday.

Mercer hit the third of back-to-back-to-back homers off Josh Collmenter in the 10th, following David Freese and Jose Osuna. Mercer was hitting just .203/.317/.268 this season before arriving in Atlanta this week. He's gone 7-for-13 with two homers in three games since.

Rio Ruiz went 2-for-5 with a double and two runs scored Wednesday against the Pirates.

It'd be nice to see Ruiz stick around as the Braves' primary third baseman after Adonis Garcia is ready to return, but we're guessing that won't happen. The Braves will eventually give up on Garcia, but it seems unlikely that they're ready to do so right now.
May 25 - 12:17 AM

Robert Gsellman allowed three runs in six innings and did not get a decision against the Padres on Wednesday.

Yangervis Solarte did all the damage, driving in one run in the third inning and two more in the fifth. Gsellman surrendered six hits and one walk while fanning three batters in the quality start. The Mets skipped his last start but gave him another chance today. He 2-3 record remains unchanged to go with a 6.45 ERA in 10 games, including seven starts. He has 33 strikeouts and 15 walks in 44 2/3 innings.
May 25 - 12:11 AM

Tyler Chatwood allowed just one base hit and struck out eight batters in seven shutout innings to beat the Phillies 7-2 on Wednesday.

He carried a no-hitter into the fifth inning when catcher Andrew Knapp singled. Chatwood walked four batters and picked one of them off base. He threw 112 pitches and had to be pulled after seven innings. His record improves to 4-6 with a 4.50 ERA and 1.33 WHIP. He will face the Mariners and Padres in a two-start week coming up next.
May 25 - 12:04 AM

Anthony Rizzo went 3-for-3 with two homers and a walk as the Cubs edged the Giants 5-4 on Wednesday.

Rizzo has four homers in his last four games, taking his OPS from .757 to .846. He's still batting just .238, but that won't last for much longer, either.
