ESPN.com – MLB – Box Score – Nationals at Braves E: A LaRoche (2, ground ball) For a while there — when it looked like a shutout was in order — I was kind of hoping that the Braves could give up one more run, so they could lose 9-0, the official score of a … Continue reading “Natspos 8, Braves 1”
ESPN.com – MLB – Box Score – Nationals at Braves Wow. Walk off, grand slam homer by Francoeur with two out. Braves rally in a game that they never should have had to. After Sosa blew a 2-0 lead with single runs in the third and fourth, he got the lead back in the fifth … Continue reading “Braves 8 , Natspos 5”
ESPN.com – MLB – Box Score – Nationals at Braves Pretty easy going — it got a little tight in the middle innings but Smoltz was in control the whole way.
