In notching his 169th career victory, John Smoltz threw 109 pitches, 77 for strikes. (David Kohl/AP)
Joe Randa slugged his ninth homer and Adam Dunn launched his 17th, but that was all the offense the bats would muster. Left-handed hurler Brandon Claussen allowed three runs -- two on long balls -- and struck out nine.
