The Atlanta Braves kicked off the 2009 MLB season with a strong victory over the defending World Champions, the Philedelphia Phillies.
The new Braves pitcher, Derek Lowe, pitched 8 shutout innings, giving up only 2 singles. Brian McCann, Jeff Franceour, and rookie Jordan Schafer all homered. Schafer homered in his first MLB at-bat!
What a great night it was!
