ATLANTA — Pitching coach Bob McClure walked to the mound on Tuesday night in what appeared to be simply a tactic to stall the game and allow the relievers time to warm up.
Zach Eflin was in trouble and seemed to be at the end of his line after allowing the first three batters to reach and a run to score in the seventh inning of a 5-2 win over the Braves at SunTrust Park.
He stood on the right side last season but moved to the left this year in hopes of being able to throw more sinkers to lefthanded batters.
Williams then scored on a single by Eflin after the Braves elected to walk Cameron Rupp and face the pitcher with two outs.
The Braves played without Shortstop Johan Camargo, who suffered a hyperextended right knee when he jogged onto the field to start the game.
