Braves' late heroics dashed by Phillies in 11 innings

Later crew chief Jerry Layne strongly implied that he sympathized with Snitker - and that the Phillies bore the responsibility for the delay - but that he felt that he had to protect the pitcher.

Kapler will get the benefit of the doubt on this stuff if, as the season wears on, his bullpen does, in fact, stay fresh and does contribute to a successful Phillies season.

Dubbed a potential cornerstone player in the vein of Chase Utley, if his major league debut is of any indication, it's going to be fun to watch number four continue to develop, regardless of the team's record. "But I can also tell you that we'll be creative and we'll be flexible and we'll find ways to put together a bullpen that's going to be protective".

I take full responsibility.

With their final game in Atlanta set for March 31st, the Phillies will have a chance to steal the series from the Braves, before taking the show on the road to NY, to face off against the Mets on April second.

Snitker said his complaint was a carryover from the eighth, when Dansby Swanson was called out by first-base umpire Greg Gibson on a similar play.

All of the relievers used in Thursday's game were called on again Friday night.

Julio Teheran started on opening day for the fifth straight year, the most for any Braves pitcher since the team moved to Atlanta in 1966. He was charged with seven runs, four earned, and nine hits in 2 2/3 innings. He turned to outfielder Pedro Floriman to pitch the last inning.

Due to the health concerns of both the actors, the film got postponed which gave the actress more time to shop for her wedding. In fact, Padukone has also started shopping with her mother and sister for her bridal dress and jewellery, the report suggests.

Braves: C Kurt Suzuki suffered what he said was "really bad" bruising but no broken bone when he was hit by a pitch on the side of his right hand on Friday night.

The other half of Atlanta's projected catching platoon, Tyler Flowers, was placed on the 10-day disabled list before the game after suffering a strained left oblique on Thursday night.

Wyatt's mom said they are hoping to take Wyatt to several Braves games this season. Perez, 27, was designated for assignment by the Angels on Tuesday after hitting.265 in 17 spring games.

Right-hander Josh Ravin, who appeared in a combined 33 games the last three seasons with the Dodgers, was recalled by the Braves and pitched the ninth, giving up only a walk. Left-hander Rex Brothers was optioned to Triple-A Gwinnett. When asked, in general, about his bullpen usage, he said that he's embarked on a usage of the bullpen designed "to keep them safe and strong".

Phillies: RHP Ben Lively will face New York's Matt Harvey when Philadelphia opens a series at the Mets on Monday night.

The Phillies were trailing an inning later. McCarthy is 0-1 with a 2.70 ERA in three career starts against the Phillies.

In Game 1 of this series on opening day, the Braves secured a rousing 8-5 walk-off win.
