Lone highlight for Atlanta was provided by Ender Inciarte, who hit his first home run as a Brave, Tyrell Jenkins will get his first Major League start today against the Phillies.
Oscar Pistorius has been sentenced to six years in prison for the murder of his Girlfriend, this is the second time he has been convicted of the same crime.
