Houston 7, Atlanta 6 (18 innings)

At a certain point, you just have to admit it wasn’t to be. Kyle Farnsworth, magnificent in the regular season, couldn’t hold a 6-1 lead, and the Braves couldn’t score for nine innings of tied baseball, losing in one of the strangest games ever played. The Braves, for once, didn’t fall behind in the first. […]

Houston 7, Atlanta 3 – MLB – Box Score – Braves at Astros The games of this series have all followed pretty much the same script. The Astros jump out to a first-inning lead on a series of hits (Ensberg usually driving in the run). This time, they got two runs. Then the Braves come back to tie. […]

Atlanta 7, Houston 1 – MLB – Box Score – Astros at Braves John Smoltz saved the season. He gave the Braves another valiant effort, 93 pitches in seven innings of one-run, seven-hit, five-strikeout baseball. And he adopted Brian McCann as his personal catcher, getting the rookie into the lineup where he belongs, and where he hit a […]

Atlanta 4, Washington 0 – MLB – Box Score – Braves at Nationals The Braves bounced back with a convincing win. Jorge Sosa had his most successful start with the Braves, Andruw Jones tied the team home run record, and Jeff Francoeur continued to work miracles in right field. All the runs came in the fourth. With one […]

Washington 8, Atlanta 6 – MLB – Box Score – Braves at Nationals Hey, guess what! The Braves’ bullpen sucks! I know! Horacio Ramirez was partially at fault. He went only five innings, allowing three runs, two earned (the unearned run was his fault and LaRoche’s), because he needed a remarkable 108 pitches to get that far and […]

Atlanta 4, New York 3 (10 innings) – MLB – Box Score – Mets at Braves Ryan Langerhans might have earned the full-time left field job. Not only did he go 3-4 with a walk, but more importantly he drove in the game-tying run with a ninth inning double and the game-winning runs with a two-out, two-run single in the tenth. […]

Atlanta 3, New York 1 – MLB – Box Score – Mets at Braves Marcus Giles is amazing. Tonight, he scored from second on a swinging bunt out. The Braves and Mets had identical hit totals, seven apiece. The Mets had one walk, the Braves two, but that was matched with a HBP. Four of the Mets hits were […]

Atlanta 4, New York 2 – MLB – Box Score – Mets at Braves I like beating the Mets, and Steve Trachsel really annoys me so I really like beating him. Beating him when Willie Randolph left him in after 100 pitches in his second game back is great. The Mets took a lead in the top of the […]

Cincinnati 8, Atlanta 3 – MLB – Box Score – Reds at Braves Who is worse, Adam LaRoche or Dan Kolb? That’s a tough one, huh? Marcus was the offense today. He hit a solo homer in the first and another one in the sixth. Down 3-2 in the eighth, he hit a two-out triple that just missed […]

Atlanta 9, Cincinnati 3 – MLB – Box Score – Reds at Braves For once, the Braves’ bullpen pitched well and the Braves actually got some runs off the other team’s middle relief to pull out to an easy win. After falling down 1-0 while the country was getting to watch a college football game instead of the […]
