Worst day ever? Got to be close. Blown out, and both Chipper and Escobar left the game with what are supposed to be minor injuries. It started well enough, with Jorge Campillo keeping the Mariners off the board (albeit with a lot of help from his defense, including Infante taking away a home run, which almost makes up for him playing left field to begin with). The Braves got a run in the fourth to take the lead, only for Francoeur to do what he does and ground into a bases-loaded, one out double play. Nothing much went right after that.
The Mariners tied it in the sixth. Campillo came out to start the seventh, but got only one out and wound up charged with three runs, two of them Grybos by Bennett. Ohman came out for the eighth and got the first two, but then fell apart; the Mariners had five runs, all off of Ohman. KJ drove in Escobar in the bottom of the inning, and Escobar apparently hurt his leg on the play. He is day to day. KJ was only playing because Chipper reinjured his quad; he says it’s the worst it’s been and he’ll miss at least two days. Nobody but Infante played well, which I guess is a good sign because he’s going to play a lot in the upcoming games.
