Oh, what’s the point?
Chuck James didn’t have his best stuff and allowed five runs in 4 1/3. (It would have been a good outing for Cormier.) It was walks, mostly, six of them, and homers, two of those. Kevin Barry came in and let the Natspos pile on. George Lombard actually drew a pinch-walk and scored a run, which may have been Robinson’s way of taunting us.
Meanwhile, the Braves were stymied again by some guy off the street. “Beltran Perez”, which sounds like NYMETS’ porn name, allowed one hit in six innings, a single by the returning Chipper in the first. Didn’t walk anyone either. The Braves got a couple of runs late off the back of the pen but it hardly matters.
Sorry for the inadequate recap, but frankly I can’t summon the energy for outrage anymore.
