Between Jeff Francoeur and Nick Markakis, Braves DHs hit .333 (4-for-12) with a double, two home runs (both Francoeur’s) and four RBIs. In 12 previous interleague games, Atlanta DHs batted .095 (2-for-21) with no homers and no RBIs.
“What a big job for us.” Francoeur said. “We won three of four here in Chicago against two good teams. It’s a good way to finish out the first half.”
