Bourn's delayed entrance a laughing matter
PHOENIX -- Braves center fielder Michael Bourn provided the comic relief Thursday when he delayed the game in the bottom of the fourth inning against the D-backs because he was in the bathroom.

"I didn't know what he was doing," Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "I didn't even notice. Our guys covered up by saying he had a belt malfunction."

Players in both dugouts chuckled during the delay. A day later, Bourn laughed off the incident.

"He came down the tunnel and said, 'Man, that was a quick three outs,'" Gonzalez said.
