Ah, you can’t win them all. Tom Glavine wasn’t quite right today, Derek Lowe was superb, and the Braves lost 6-1. Still, they won the series, and will at worst have a 5 1/2 game lead heading into a three-game series with Detroit. Boy, Detroit! Great to see them come to town, huh?
Rafael Furcal was hit in the elbow (actually, it appeared to be the funny bone) with a pitch in the third inning and left in the fourth. He is day-to-day; an off-day tomorrow will help… Matt Franco played first base today after Julio Franco played yesterday. He drove in the Braves’ only run with a single in the third, and had another hit. He’s now at .364; we’ll see if Bobby sticks with him for now.
