Tommy Hanson suffered from bad defense and bad luck. He also suffered from the lack of a pitch that can get him out of trouble. Hanson threw almost exclusively fastball/slider, and he received four whiffs on the slider, but he also left several up and over the plate. He lacked fastball command, missing a large chunk of his heaters up and arm side. The result was five line drives allowed and a .444 BABIP with just one infield hit.
The Braves offense suffered from leftyitis again, managing one sac fly run off Eric Stults over six innings.
