Penny's arm can't follow bat
Braves 8, Dodgers 6
Brad Penny threw 101 pitches despite only going four innings on Thursday. (Mark J. Terrill/AP)
 Penny's two-run single
Brad Penny had a double and a single and drove in three, but he didn't have the same success on the mound. The All-Star right-hander struggled through four innings, allowing six runs on nine hits in a no-decision. Eric Stults yielded a Chipper Jones homer in the seventh and took the loss.
