The Braves just sucked tonight. The exceptions are the 1-2-3 hitters, and starter Jair Jurrjens, who was stuck with a loss despite pitching six strong innings, allowing two runs on four hits, striking out five. But the Braves were held to six hits — two each by KJ and Chipper, one by Escobar, and only one (by Diaz) by anyone in the bottom two-thirds of the order. They drew no walks, and had no extra-base hits.
Then the bullpen got involved. Resop and Ring got through the seventh, somehow, but Ring loaded the bases after getting the leadoff hitter in the eighth. Carlyle came in to get one batter, and did, and then Bobby for some ungodly reason brought in the horrifying Ohman. Two bases-loaded walks later, it was 4-0. And Ohman didn’t even get charged for a run! Great work, Will!
I’ve got to go throw things at the wall now.
