Hey, look! It’s another one-run loss! That’s five of them already. This is not normal.
The Braves took a 1-0 lead in the first again, Chipper singling in KJ, only to go right back into hibernation mode. Jair Jurrjens gave the lead back on back-to-back two-out hits in the bottom of the inning, and allowed two runs on three hits in the fourth. He allowed one more run in the fifth. He really didn’t pitch too badly, considering the ballpark, and gave the team seven innings.
Kotsay hit a two-out two-run homer in the sixth to cut it to 4-3. However, after Diaz followed with a single, the Braves didn’t get another hit. They were limited to six in all, but walked five times.
I am actually literally sick with the flu, so the Braves aren’t responsible for my nausea. But they’re certainly not helping. Oh, and Jordan Schafer was suspended for fifty games for using HGH, which is against the rules even though it doesn’t actually work.
