Filling in for A.J. Pierzinski, Ryan Lavarnway picked up right where Pierzinski left off. In his first plate appearance of the day, the Braves catcher hit a solo home run that tied the game at 2. The Braves went on to lose the game in the bottom of the 9th with a walk off single.
Ryan Lavernway was a cheap option to get Coors exposure. If Pierzinski gets another day of rest tomorrow then Lavernway will be a great punt play for your line up.
