Written by Matt Davis on May 10, 2012. Posted in Sports

The Atlanta Braves fell to the Chicago Cubs 1-0 in the series closer between the teams at Wrigley Field yesterday afternoon.  Braves starting pitcher Tim Hudson had what would have ordinarily been a great day at the ball park, giving up just one run and five hits in seven innings.  Unfortunately, the Braves’ offense was unable to back him up.  The Cubs took two out of three from the Braves in Chicago.  Good news, however, Braves fans – the Braves still have a four win – two loss record for their current road trip.  They’ll have a day off today and get back into action with a three game series in St. Louis against the Cardinals over the weekend.  Game one is set for tomorrow night at 8:15 pm at Busch Stadium and will be broadcast on the AM 1410 WLAQ, Rome’s original home for Atlanta Braves baseball.  Air time for the pre-game show is 7 pm from the Atlanta Braves radio network.
