GAME OF THE DAY

Harris, Braves too much for Cardinals

July 22, 2007|From the Associated Press

ATLANTA — Willie Harris became the second player in Atlanta history with six hits in a game, going six for six with two triples and six runs batted in to help the Braves defeat the St. Louis Cardinals, 14-6, on Saturday night.

Felix Millan, in 1970, was the last Braves player with a six-hit game. Harris is the franchise's seventh player to reach the mark.

Harris was the offensive catalyst with a run-scoring single in the second inning, a two-run triple in the third and a bases-loaded triple in the fourth.

Chipper Jones hit his 16th homer and had four RBIs for Atlanta, which set a single-game franchise record with a crowd of 53,953 at Turner Field.

Pitcher Scott Olsen of the Florida Marlins was arrested early Saturday after police said he refused to pull over and got into a fight with officers in Aventura, Fla. He was booked on charges of driving under the influence, resisting an officer with violence and fleeing and eluding a police officer. He was released Saturday afternoon on $11,000 bond.
