Over the last few years, the Braves seem to have a lot of these Sundays where they don’t show up. This was one of them. John Smoltz wasn’t right, and this time wasn’t able to pitch through it, giving up four runs in just four innings. It was so bad that he gave up a homer to Carlos Delgado’s corpse.
Meanwhile, the Braves couldn’t get anything going. Finally in the sixth they got three runs, with Teixeira (heating up with Chipper on the shelf) in the middle of it with a double. But Ohman came in and couldn’t pitch around his horribleness, allowing a run in the bottom of the inning and another, on another homer by the corpse, in the seventh, to put it away. Resop actually was unscathed in the eighth, but who cares?
I could write more, but I’m in a hurry and I don’t see why I should put in any more effort than the team.
