The Braves got some good news before the game as tests showed that Marcus Giles has a healthy heart and can keep playing. Giles missed the doubleheader against Philadelphia and was told at a Philadelphia hospital that he might have a heart defect.
Braves manager Bobby Cox picked up his 2,158th victory, moving him past Bucky Harris into fifth place on the all-time list. Sparky Anderson is fourth with 2,194.
James was pinch-hit for in the ninth and Macay McBride struck out all three batters he faced to complete the one-hitter.
