Indianapolis Falls To Richmond

Last updated on Monday, April 23, 2007

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - Yunel Escobar hit a two-run home run in the fifth that gave Richmond the lead for good as the Braves powered past the Indianapolis Indians 8-3.

Indianapolis starter Marty McLeary retired the first two batters in the fifth. Martin Prado singled and Escobar followed with his go-ahead homer.

An error would lead to four more unearned runs scoring in the Braves' six-run inning.

Richmond has taken two of the first three games in the four-game series which ends tonight at Victory Field.
