This was one of the oddest games I have ever seen. It was like watching three games all in one.
At one point the Braves didn’t have a base runner for seven innings. Then with the score tied at one, the Braves blow it open with six runs in the 14th. I know, this is a strange team.
At one point we would go 12-1 and lose a few in a row. Now we have taken getting streaky to a new level. We go six-seven innings with no base runners, then score six.
I guess it helps when you play a AAA team. They actually remind me of the Cleveland Indians from Major League, except with less talent and heart.
It is a little too early to say “must win game,” but this was as close as you can get to one in July. These are the type of games you look back on if you lose and miss the playoffs by one game.
On top of it all, the Nats lost. The lead is back up to five.
