ATLANTA — A night after a lengthy 11-inning affair, Joe Blanton pitched a three-hitter for his first shutout in five years and Shane Victorino hit a two-run homer. "I tried to use (Wednesday night) to my advantage a little bit with an early 12 o'clock start (Thursday)," said Blanton, who won in 2 hours, 2 minutes for his third career shutout. "I wanted to pound the zone a lot and hope that maybe they were coming out a touch lethargic. I don't know if that was the case."
