Braves 4, Reds 1
ATLANTA — Rookie right-hander David Hale pitched eight two-hit innings in a performance that still might not be enough to save his spot in the Braves rotation. Hale gave up Ryan Ludwick's RBI double in the first inning. He didn't allow another hit as he faced the minimum 21 batters over the next seven. Hale has a 2.31 ERA in four starts but could lose his rotation spot next week, when left-hander Mike Minor is expected to come off the disabled list.
