So, what’s Kyle Davies’ deal? Is he still hurt, or does he just suck? It was 3-0 before he recorded an out last night, and it was 5-0 when he left in the fourth. Joey Devine came in and pitched well; as his ERA lowers and Davies’ gets higher, if the season were a week longer (thank God it’s not) they probably would have met at about 9. Davies allowed five hits and walked six while striking out only one; frankly, he was lucky to allow only five runs. Moylan came in and undid the good work he’d been doing by allowing single runs in the fifth and sixth.
McCann and Bobby were thrown out for arguing a walk call (Davies apparently had been issued a ball for breathing on his hands) and this time Pena, not Pratt, replaced McCann. The other Pena, L’il Tony, was actually the hitting star on the night, going 3-5 and raising his average all the way to .227. The Braves had ten hits but nobody else had more than one. Andruw had a couple of walks and hit a homer in the ninth.
