Personally, I’m disgusted.
Tim Hudson pitched well for three and two-thirds innings, but gave up a two-out, three-run homer to Delgado in the fourth. In the fifth, he allowed a solo homer to Reyes. He only allowed six hits and didn’t walk anyone; it’s basically the opposite of the Braves’ normal outing on offense.
Ah, the offense. Such as it was. They didn’t do diddly for the first five, getting two hits (one erased on a caught stealing) and one walk. Pete Orr, of all people, led off the sixth with a pinch-hit, and after KJ and Diaz walked to load the bases, the Braves had the 3-4-5 spots up and a great opportunity to get back into it. They only got one run out of the situation, and that on a wild pitch.
Ascanio allowed three runs in the ninth, but it hardly mattered. As a rule, you rarely win when you’re four-hit.
