Yesterday was, apparently, Tuesday, and not Monday, which means I was supposed to recap the game. The Braves were, apparently, playing the Giants, and not the Marlins, which means they were supposed to lose the game. The Braves held up their end of the bargain, but I, alas, failed to live up to mine.
The game was quite the pitchers’ duel until the 8th inning, with Jake Peavy throwing a one-hitter against the Braves and Matt Wisler countering with a three-hitter of his own. Through seven innings, the only runner to cross the plate was Peavy, who made it home in the 6th on a Denard Span triple.
Wisler came out to start the 8th, but a walk and a double to the first two batters ended his night. Three pitchers and runs later, the inning finally came to a close. The last inning and a half were a mere formality, as was, quite frankly, the bottom of every inning before that. To compete in a sporting event, a team has to show up. Last night it seemed as though the Braves showed up just long enough to vote “present”, then skipped out before the vote was done, leaving Wisler to find out the result on his own.
