"That's their decision. But overall I felt good". Philadelphia logged nine hits with Howie Kendrick going 3-4 with a solo jack while Odubel Herrara driving in a pair. Neshek finished off the Braves for his first save of the season. A replacement for Colon in the starting rotation is expected to be announced in a couple of days, manager Brian Snitker said. Garcia had a no-decision at Philadelphia on April 21, allowing five hits and two runs over six innings.

Hector Neris gave up one-out singles to Matt Kemp and Matt Adams in the ninth.

Cesar Hernandez led off the sixth with a double to left off Jaime Garcia (2-4) and scored on Herrera's double to the right field corner for a 2-1 lead.

Kendrick had three hits, scored a run and stole a base.

Braves IF Sean Rodriguez took ground balls in the outfield before batting practice in his first return to baseball activities since offseason shoulder surgery.

No, I think I sound stupid because that's how all of it be sounding to me. "And we could've won". I just hope soon we can get back to talking about how the Warriors can beat Cleveland.

After a rough start to the season, 44-year-old right-hander Bartolo Colon was placed on the disabled list with a left oblique strain by the Atlanta Braves. "It doesn't have the same action he had a year ago and we've got to figure that out", he said.

Colon said Monday night he'd accept any role. Colon has been a pitcher that eats innings and keeps his team in games. The over is 9-3-1 in Atlanta last 13 on grass and the over is 6-2 in Atlanta last 8 Wednesday games while Atlanta are 6-13 in their last 19 home games. He has 19 doubles.

Garcia (2-4) pitched 7 2/3 innings, the third time in four starts that he's pitched at least seven innings.

Colon, 44, has had a disastrous start to his first season in Atlanta, pitching to a 7.78 ERA with 6.1 K/9, 2.6 BB/9 and a 44.3 percent ground-ball rate through his first 12 starts/59 innings as a fearless.

Neshek has had an incredible season for the Phils, allowing runs in just one of his 24 appearances.
