Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, sometimes it rains. – Crash Davis
The Phillies actually jumped out to an early lead when John Mayberry took Alex Wood deep in the second. However, that is the only negative take away from Wood’s start today. Wood went six gave up three hits and struck out eight. He may have had another inning in him, but Mother Nature wanted to watch a couple of episodes of Driven: The Overly Sappy Story of (Fill in a Brave/Former Brave Here.)
The Braves brought out the walking sticks today. Twice in the game the Phillies walked a batter with the bases loaded. They probably wish they had walked Tommy La Stella in the third with the bases loaded, because he ripped a two out bases clearing double. Chris “Progression” Johnson continued his hot hitting with a 2-4 day, including a two run homer.
The Braves take the series and will host the Fish starting tomorrow. It looks like El Oso Blanco will be back too. He was 2-6 over at Coolray today.
