I have little to say, except CURSES UPON THIS TEAM, MAY EVERLASTING HELLFIRE BURN YOU FOR PUTTING ME THROUGH WATCHING YOUR INCOMPETENT ATTEMPTS TO PLAY BASEBALL!!!!!!!!
Anyway, Jorge Campillo gave up four hits and a walk in the first inning, leading to four runs. And then everybody could have gone home, because there is no way that the Braves were going to score five runs no longer how long they played. It’s not totally Campillo’s fault — you’re around the plate, you’re going to give up some hits, and sometimes they’ll be all together like that. The Cubs got another run in the fifth. Bennett and Ohman staunched the bleeding, but Gonzalez was super-wild in the ninth and was lifted with the bases loaded and one in, and Tavarez allowed a couple more to score.
Chipper was out of the lineup with a “stomach virus”. I dunno, watching this team gives me nausea. Anyway, the Braves had all of three hits, two by Escobar and one by Prado. They loaded the bases on walks in the third but Kotchman grounded out to end the threat. I hate this team.
