Braves win; Ramirez pitches pain-free

The Braves beat the Astros 4-3 in ten innings yesterday. Andy Marte scored the winning run on a Bill McCarthy single. The box score is here.

Of much more interest is the fact that Horacio Ramirez threw a 13-pitch inning without any signs of discomfort in his left shoulder. Continued pain-fee pitching should allow him to return to the five spot in the rotation, where he posted a 2.28 ERA in nine starts during the 2004 season.
