8 men left on base. It’s not a whole lot but 6 of those 8 were stranded as a part of a bases loaded situation.
Two times the Braves loaded the bases last night but only 2 runs came across. To be fair though, at least neither Norton nor McCann struck out with all those ducks on the pond. Both sets of loaded LOB’s came as a result of hard hit balls. But had those runs come across, giving up 8 runs to the Nationals is still an embarrassing fact.
Jurrjens had a rare 5 run outing but RIng didn’t help with his 3 spot in 1/3 of an inning.
Nobody really looked good in this game. Chipper and Greg Norton were responsible for the pair of Braves runs so Chipper is still hanging around just under the .375 mark. Lillibridge ended his mini-streak and Frenchy got a hit!
Well folks, I have to keep this one brief because I’m heading out the door to today’s rubber match with the Nats so I will hopefully have a winning post tonight.
