    Fun game. Uggla’s homer truly awesome. You really can see me going crazy on the front row…white shirt kid next to me in a red shirt. Too tired to write in complete sentences go braves and good night.

    @51: Is that you above the O in GEICO?

    51 — That’s awesome! Isn’t it the best when you’re at the game and you can see the trajectory of the ball and know right away that it’s a homer? And when it’s coming right at you — that’s pretty cool too. I was at Beachy’s complete game in May and Freddie’s HR landed a row behind me and about 5 seats to my right.

    #52 Yep! That’s us! I cheer like such a girl. There was the funniest heckler behind us wearing out Quentin. He kept calling him Jonny Damon and would hollar 27 million. So funny.

    Leah, awesome!

    Leah, nice work. I think you and your son made up a tenth of the crowd last night. Yikes.

    Leah Says:

    @56 Very small crowd. Disturbingly so.

    Curt Says:

    2nd smallest of the season

    Is calling someone Johnny Damon an insult now?

    Walker Says:

    I just realized low activity on the comments section means we are winning. High activity means something isn’t right. I like how it is now.

    Curt Says:

    Can I gloat more about Medlen?

    Ham Says:

    I am really loving this team right now. Go Chipper! Epic night.

    Adam Says:

    Chipper homers twice (on his bobble head night), Heyward homers, Medlen looks dominant, and the Nationals have the night off so we’re guaranteed to make up ground if this lead holds. Pretty good night I’d say.

  14. 64
    Walker Says:

    You can’t take Medlen out the rotation. A 3rd straight amazing start clinches it. Tommy, you don’t have to go home but you got to get the hell out of the rotation. Either you or Minor.

    Really fun game to be at. Hammer won the tool race.

    Walker Says:

    Wow Wow and Wow. One of the most well played games all year. The only things that stand in this team’s way are the Nationals and a coin flip game.

    Bubdylan Says:

    Holy smokes. Raise your hand if you had Medlen down for a CGSO this year. That kid’s got moxie.

    Walker Says:

    20 games over .500. Whew. Its been a long hard road.More work to be done.

    “and miles to go before I sleep…” (for Curt)

    Steve Says:

    Was there tonight with all 3 of my kids (a first) so it was pretty special going in. But that game was something else. Post season wins aside, I can’t remember enjoying a game more. And there really is something soooooo goose bump inducing about a curtain call. And to demand two in the same night, from Chipper no less. It was a special night. And you layer Medlen’s performance and the defense over it all. Just unbelievable.

  23. 73
    Leah Says:

    So Steve, you had a good time then? Just to be clear. :)

  24. 74
    Steve Says:

    @73 – it was ok.

    As I see it, the three starting pitchers this weekend against the Dodgers (Hanson, Sheets and Minor) are the three that are truly battling for starting rotation spots in September. Huddy, Medlen and Maholm are in.

  25. 75
    Bubdylan Says:

    74, agreed, with the caveat (sp?) that Sheets’s position is his to lose.
