oads ability to bowl cutters. He pushed
MILWAUKEE -- Dan Uggla would like to see the Atlanta Braves play with some swagger again. The Braves ran their scoreless streak to 24 innings Saturday with a second straight 2-0 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers. "Weve got to pick up our attitude, weve got to pick up our intensity," he said. "To get out of a stretch like this, youve got to hustle, make things happen." Atlanta has not scored since the third inning of its 4-3 loss to the New York Mets on Thursday. Atlanta has been shut out a majors leading 11 times this season. They got four hits Saturday after getting just two in the series opener a night earlier. Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said the Braves are not swinging the bat well. "Were getting on base, but when we do hit the ball hard, its at somebody or somebody makes a good play," he said. "I feel like, at any moment, some of the at-bats that youre seeing, at any moment youre going to turn that around." Tim Hudson (4-7) lost his sixth straight decision, despite giving up just two runs and seven hits in six innings. He allowed RBI singles to Juan Francisco, in the fourth, and Aramis Ramirez, in the fifth inning. The Braves have scored just 10 runs in Hudsons last nine starts. He has not won in nine starts, his worst winless stretch of his career since an eight-start stretch in 2002. Hudson said the Braves are just in tough stretch. "Its baseball, it happens. Theres no panic on our part," he said. "Guys understand thats how it is. You come across some pretty good pitching. A young kid today going out there and making his first start, excited about being out there. Youve got to tip your hat to the guy thats on the mound." Francisco Rodriguez earned his 300th save. Given another opportunity by the Brewers in May, Rodriguez has made it pay off. Rodriguez went 2-7 with a 4.38 ERA during the 2012 season and was released by the Brewers but they re-signed him in May and he has converted all six save chances this year. "A lot of people thought that I was done, that I had retired," he said. "People forgot that I was just 31 years old. In my career, just last year was a really bad year. I know what I am capable of doing." Rodriguez gave up one of the Braves four hits in becoming the 25th closer in major league history to reach the 300-save milestone. He was aided by a barehanded pickup and throw by shortstop Jean Segura to get leadoff hitter Jordan Shafer. Andrelton Simmons then singled, but Rodriguez got Jason Heyward to line out and Freddie Freeman struck out. After the strikeout, Rodriguez pumped his fist and pointed to the sky. "It feels great," Rodriguez said. "You have no idea how happy and excited I am. I have to continue working hard and hopefully play for many years to come." Donovan Hand, making his first big league start, allowed only two hits in 4 2-3 innings for Milwaukee. He struck out three and walked one in helping extend Atlantas scoreless streak to 24 innings. Burke Badenhop (1-3) entered after Hand walked Uggla and got Chris Johnson to groundout to end the fifth. Milwaukee has beaten Atlanta eight straight times at Miller Park, outscoring them 31-9.

Umeshs use of the creaseIn the first over of the day Umesh Yadav showed hes constantly evolving as a bowler. Hes not only clocking speeds in the high 140kph range consistently but also using the crease quite well. Usually he bowls from the middle of the box but in the first over today, he went to the corner of the crease and also came closer to the stumps. The idea behind using the crease is to create new angles and therefore sow the seeds of doubt.Are modern helmets ideal for keeping?The helmets used in cricket are manufactured to protect the batsman and are designed from a batsmans perspective. A batsman isnt required to look up or down but a wicketkeeper is, for in the wicketkeeping stance he is required to look up and on other occasions forced to look down as well. In terms of both comfort and visibility, the modern helmet isnt meant to be worn by the wicketkeeper. Time to manufacture a wicketkeepers helmet?Left-arm spin to Stokes?The pitch has held up really well thus far, and the business areas havent disintegrated one bit. The only area of concern was the footmarks on the far end but those too were only likely to bother the left-hander. Surprisingly, Ben Stokes numbers against left-arm spinners arent great - in the two Tests in Bangladesh, he was out to left-arm spin in all four innings - and therefore it might not have been a bad idea to start with Jadeja and target the rough outside his off stump. India chose to operate with fast bowlers instead and by the time Jadeja got into action, Stokes had already made a strong start to the day. No substitute for paceOnce a batsman gets set on Indian pitches, theres noot much a fast bowler can do to dislodge him, for theres no help from the surface.dddddddddddd Even if theres reverse-swing available, its not as lethal unless you have extra pace. To produce a wicket-taking ball, you need extra pace, and thats where Umesh was sensational. He beat a well-set Bairstow with extra pace, for that accentuated the reverse-swing. This Indian team is blessed to have two fast bowlers who bowl at over 140kph consistently and thats why they have been able to contribute in this home season.Broads leg-cuttersThe ball that dismissed KL Rahul highlighted Stuart Broads ability to bowl cutters. He pushed the ball inwards a little more while putting a little more pressure with the index finger to get away movement off the pitch. Anderson also did something similar to Vijay and then to dismiss Pujara. While Indian seamers have bowled quicker, Anderson and Broad have found more lateral movement off the pitch on this docile pitch. In fact, there are few like Anderson and Broad in the world.There was a time when almost every Indian fast bowler used to bowl cutters, since they honed their craft on matting surfaces. But as cricket moved to turf pitches, the reliance on cutters reduced dramatically and that reflects in the Indian fast bowlers of this era.The data clearly shows how much Englands fast bowlers emphasised the use of cutters. Ben Stokes, Anderson and Broad achieved average deviations off the pitch of 0.65°, 0.58° and 0.53°, while Shami managed just 0.11° and Umesh 0°.
