Stockholm Syndrome Is Thinking That Three Runs Is An Offensive Outburst Game Thread

Last night, the Braves scored three runs in ten innings — and, sadly, that equalled their run total over their previous 18 innings. This team looks about as comfortable at the plate as William Bendix in The Babe Ruth Story. But a win’s a win. Maybe tomorrow we can score three runs in nine innings, or even two runs in a five-inning rainout.

Did you know that, from April 11 to April 14, the Braves scored a total of 32 runs over four games, with at least six runs in each game? It’s true! That’s equal to the number of runs that we’ve scored over our last 14 games, from April 23 to May 9. Not surprisingly, we won all four of those high-scoring games. We’re 6-8 over the last 14.

In the game thread, Ububba pointed out that we’re 1-0 with punk songs in the game threads. So here is one of the greatest rock and roll songs ever.

  1. Only scoring three runs in 10 innings against the Cubs is offensive, just not quite in the same way.

  2. 1. Heyward RF 2. JUpton LF 3. Freeman 1B 4. Gattis C 5. Johnson 3B 6. BUpton CF 7. Simmons SS 8. Santana P 9. Pastornicky 2B

    I’ll set the over/under on Upton strikeouts tonight at 6.

  3. Should be getting back to baseball in a couple minutes. Samardzija looks like he’s coming back out.

  4. Your typical inkstain rundown, that’s 9-6-3-4-6-3-6-7 if you’re scoring at home or even if you’re by yourself.

  5. We have two hitters worth a damn. Thanks for unintentionally attempting to kill one of them, Cubs.

  6. I think Caray secretly wishes he was still an announcer for the Chicago Cubs. He fawns over them year after year, every time the Braves play them.

    Good grief, the Braves just scored one run and have runners on second and third with one out, and I caught myself being amazed at the offense.

  8. I think it’s just that Pastornicky is the only person on our team who can bunt worth a crap. That actually wasn’t an easy pitch to bunt. Anybody else on our team would have fouled it off at best.

  9. And Oakland has scored 2 off Soriano in the ninth to tie the game! No outs and a man on first. I’m praying to Connie Mack for a couple more hits.

  10. So, Upton leaves and Schafer enters and all of sudden scoring actually seems possible without waiting on a home run.

    Yesterday, I mentioned Vandy’s freshman infielder Dansby Swanson. His line today against UF?

    2-4, 4 rbi, BB, 3-run homer in 1st inning.

    Get ‘er done, Wren.

  11. So tonight was the Cubs franchise’s 9,999th loss. The Braves have one chance tomorrow to be the team to give them the big #10,000.

  12. @53 – Swanson is a sophomore, FYI. He was hurt last year and was unable to play much. You’re right though, heck of a player and super-athletic. Can flash the leather, too.

  13. Greetings from Mallorca.
    I am responsible for the wins lately as I have been away from my wife for four days. You’re welcome. Unfortunately flying back home tonight.
