‘Something that suddenly enters the story and…solves everything’.
The twenty hit Braves
shall have no further need for saves
their winning margin so abundant
the bullpen now becomes redundant.
The idea that we might only have a three run lead going into the ninth in some strange game is patently absurd. We are a machine, a hitting machine. And we play great defense too. As of now, clearly, no one can touch us.We shall maintain this level of total superiority until the ASB and then extend Snit for a minimum 5 years. The Kemp statue shall be carved from a block of solid Carrera marble and placed in deep right field- at the top of a slope.
What finally has brought us to this Nirvana? Tonight’s game.
It started badly for the pitcher. Garcia got into all sorts of trouble in the first – lead off double, walks, hit batsman, the lot but a double play meant he exited only one run down.He then pitched well till he got to the fifth where another botched performance again only cost one. By this time we had 5 on the board, a number we would shortly more than double. So who did what?
We have to start with Kemp. 3 home runs, the first Brave since Tex 9 years ago. Such a relief to see him through his injury and back on the boil. A naysay, any one? Flowers, again, had multiple hits, 4 in his case. Nick and Freddie 3, Inciarte/Garcia/Dansby 2 each. The kid’s two included a so much needed homer down the line in left. Wisler finished it, looking decent.
So that was it, simple but profoundly symbolic. Again, never been done in the last 9 years, the twenty Braves hits. We’ll surely sweep tomorrow and go undefeated till the All Star Break. After we rest up I suggest a restart with a 6 game losing streak. Nothing fires us up like one of those. We also won’t need any saves for those, either.
