appear ance had only two hits against Kile and two relievers none after the first pitch in the second inning but both led to runs Theyve been on our butts the whole said John Smoltz wholl be the starter when the best of5 series shifts to the Astrodome on Friday Its not going to be easy get ting to the league championship But others in the Braves clubhouse were supremely confident of beating the Astros now that the first victory is out of the way Maybe we have a psychological edge winning so many close ones against said Ryan Klesko whose secondinning homer provid ed the winning margin Theyve got to be shaking their I think its going added catcher Eddie Perez more busi nesslike than boasting Two hits were enough with Maddux on the mound especially in a day game He was 100 with a ERA
