Arizona Slips Past Colorado In 10th – MLB Roundup
UNDATED (AP) — Atlanta Braves pitcher Aaron Harang entered Wednesday's major league action with the National League's best ERA. That distinction is gone after he was rocked for nine runs and 10 hits over 4 2/3 innings of the Braves' 9-3 loss in Miami.
Harang's ERA rose from 0.85 to 2.97 after allowing a three-run blast by Marcell Ozuna and a two-run shot by Christian Yelich (YEH'-lihch). They were the first home runs allowed by Harang this season.
Winning pitcher Nathan Eovaldi (eh-VAHL'-dee) allowed one run and three hits in seven innings to lower his ERA to 2.58.
