Braves Prado puts icing on cake for Chipper, Braves

Quote:
Martin Prado has struggled to regain the offensive consistency that has eluded him since the conclusion of his 2010 All-Star season. But it appears the gritty veteran still has plenty of that determination that has made him such a popular figure around the Braves' clubhouse.

Prado gave his teammates something to celebrate on Tuesday night, when he concluded a seven-pitch, ninth-inning at-bat against Javy Guerra with a two-out RBI triple that proved decisive in a 4-3 win over the Dodgers.

"Martin Prado gave me my birthday present, that was the best one of the day," said Chipper Jones, who also aided this victory with a fifth-inning solo shot that made him just the fifth player in Major League history to hit a home run on his 40th birthday.

Once Craig Kimbrel snapped a two-game losing streak with three strikeouts in a scoreless ninth inning, the Braves were celebrating the contributions of many. Mike Minor had delivered six strong innings and Prado produced the key hit. But their efforts might have gone for naught had Tyler Pastornicky not produced a career-best three-hit performance after spending the previous three days attempting to get his mind and swing right.
