VIDEO: David Hale dominates the Reds

Apr 27, 2014, 9:35 AM EDT

Braves right-hander David Hale allowed a single to Brandon Phillips and an RBI double to Ryan Ludwick in the top of the first inning Saturday evening at Turner Field, but the Reds were held hitless the rest of the way in Atlanta’s eventual 4-1 victory. Watch a recap of the dominant outing:

Hale is expected to lose his rotation spot when Mike Minor (shoulder) returns from the disabled list this week, but Minor was lit up for five runs and 10 hits — including four homers — in what was supposed to be his final rehab start Friday at Double-A Mississippi. So maybe Hale and his 2.31 ERA will get one more turn.

    No words can truly comprehend on how amazing truly is David Hale right now on what he has done with the Braves this season, this guy certainly have a wonderful future ahead of him.

    This pitching staff has been amazing! Really hope they stay healthy! A sub 2 ERA is nuts!

      The 1906 Cubs had a team ERA of 1.76 for the entire season. I don’t think the Braves can approach that mark, but they are pitching their asses off right now.

        Agreed. I don’t think anyone seriously expects the entire staff to remain at this level all year, but it goes to show what organizational depth the Braves have that they can lose two key starters and still pitch well.
