Ex-Cav Gosselin Hits First MLB Homer

Former Virginia infielder Phil Gosselin's two-run homer in the bottom of the sixth inning helped the Atlanta Braves coast to a 7-2 win over the Oakland Athletics Friday night.

Gosselin was one of four Braves to hit home runs against Oakland Friday night. It was the first homer of the former Cavalier's big league career, and came on the same night as his first career start at shortstop.

Gosselin had a pair of hits for the Braves, raising his season average to .286 in 13 games in the majors. Gosselin -- a Triple-A all-star selection this season -- has been with the Braves since having his contract purchased from Gwinnett on July 13.
