They just have to win two of three games in Fulton County Stadium to secure their second straight world championship. What an amazing time it is to be a … Continue reading “Braves 4, Yankees 0”
I don’t much feel like recapping today’s game for obvious reasons. Wisler pitched pretty well, but the offense couldn’t score if you spotted them a thousand bucks and dropped them off in Bangkok. Here’s an Auburn preview instead. “Farthest from your mind is the thought of falling back; in fact, it isn’t there at all. … Continue reading “Auburn Preview (by spike)”
All you need to know is that Jonny Gomes pitched the ninth, and pitched better than both of our starters.

When I first followed the A Braves, Hank had no gray hair. In ninety one we changed … Continue reading “Rocky Whoop Ass High: Appalachians 5, Rockies 3”

Of the six hits he allowed, three left the unfriendly confines. Matt also walked three and plunked one. The Braves did score.
