Astros 3, Braves 1

ESPN – Braves vs. Astros – Box Score – September 28, 2008 Just to add to the disgust, the Braves finished this lost season by losing a game… largely on the strength of a home run by Brad Ausmus. Will no one rid us of this middling catcher? Ausmus hit a two-run homer in the […]

Braves 11, Astros 5

ESPN – Braves vs. Astros – Box Score – September 27, 2008 Josh Anderson had hit one homer entering tonight’s game; he hit two, one leading off the game and a two-run homer in the second, tonight. The Braves jumped off to a 9-0 lead, Francoeur with a couple of doubles in the middle of […]

Astros 5, Braves 4

ESPN – Braves vs. Astros – Box Score – September 26, 2008 In the annals of “pathetic ways to lose”, a walkoff homer by Darin Erstad is definitely up there. Not that it matters. Campillo did not pitch well, and went only three innings, allowing four runs. But Carlyle & Company did their job in […]

Braves 10, Phillies 4

ESPN – Braves vs. Phillies – Box Score – September 24, 2008 Well, that was unexpected. The Braves took a 2-0 lead in the first, and led 3-1 entering the bottom of the third, but Jo-Jo the Dogfaced Pitcher couldn’t stand prosperity. Bobby yanked him in the fourth after solo shots by Utley and Howard […]

Braves 3, Phillies 2

ESPN – Braves vs. Phillies – Box Score – September 23, 2008 Uh… We won? But we never beat the Phillies. Hampton went tonight, and since he’s a deep-cover Mets operative, maybe he’s not with the program. Anyway, he went six and allowed just two runs on six hits and three walks (striking out four). […]

Phillies 6, Braves 2

ESPN – Braves vs. Phillies – Box Score – September 22, 2008 Really, they’re trying. Lots! Jurrjens gave up a couple of early runs, then settled down, as has been his wont of late. The Braves couldn’t get him a lead, but did manage to get him off the hook. Well, KJ did — he […]

Braves 7, Mets 6

ESPN – Mets vs. Braves – Box Score – September 21, 2008 Stop me if you’ve heard this one: HA-HA!!! In each of the first two innings, the Mets scored two runs while the Braves scored one, and it stayed 4-2 for some time. Klinger Parr has gone from a 0.00 ERA to useless in […]

Braves 4, Mets 2

ESPN – Mets vs. Braves – Box Score – September 20, 2008 That’s more like it. The Braves took a 3-0 lead in the first, and actually held on. When the Mets cut it to 3-2, the Braves actually got out of Hibernation Mode long enough to get an insurance run. Weird. With Chipper still […]

Mets 9, Braves 5

ESPN – Mets vs. Braves – Box Score – September 19, 2008 Well, that’s pretty standard. The Braves came back from 5-3 down to tie it, only to lose when they immediately gave up four runs. In their defense, they’re a bad team and you can’t expect them to win. Jo-Jo had nothing, and was […]

Phillies 4, Braves 3

ESPN – Phillies vs. Braves – Box Score – September 18, 2008 So, the Phillies won nine of nine games in Atlanta this season. That’s not good. I’d be more upset, of course, if I hadn’t given up two months ago. The Phillies scored two runs in the first inning. The Braves got one back […]
