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.
