Perhaps the actual ballgame was overshadowed by the big news of the evening but if you tuned in (as I did) you didn’t miss much. But what you did miss was more of the same.
Jorge Campillo pitched another great game. Giving up only 2 ER of which one was a deep to center Cadbury Creme Egg c/o of Albert Pujols. Jorge pitched seven rather good innings. Recording 5 K’s and giving up a lone walk, Campillo kept us in it.
That is, until the ninth inning came along. Then, thanks to a Corky Miller’s throwing error, the door flung open and the rest is history…along with the Braves season. Make that four in a row.
Some quick numbers for you on this one:
Frenchy knocked in his 46 RBI, but is still hanging around the dismal .230 mark. KJ got a double and Norton and Blanco both brought in runs but that’s your offense for the night. Chipper and McCann are still MIA and with Tex now gone, what can you expect offensively? I’m just going to watch Kotchman, Jurrjens, and Campillo with excitement until this thing is over.
There’s another baseball game on tonight and there may be more moves made before Friday morning’s deadline. Ohman is most likely on the move but I’ll be keeping an ear out and updates over at the Launching Pad
Thanks, Braves fans and keep choppin’ (even when it’s ugly out there).
