– MLB – Recap – Giants at Braves – 10/03/2002

Braves 7, Giants 3 (Thanks, Ed), series tied at one. A couple months after I did, the AP has announced Kevin Millwood back. He only went six innings (Bobby said after the game that he was just so fired up he was worn out), giving up only a pair of solo homers. Mike Remlinger allowed a couple of baserunners in the seventh, but got out of it with a strikeout. Darren Holmes allowed a baserunner but got two outs in the eighth. John Smoltz finished it, allowing a solo homer to Barry Bonds.

The Braves got their runs mostly from the bottom of the order. Chipper drove in Julio Franco for the first run of the game, but the rest of it runs were scored by the bottom of the lineup. Mark DeRosa was 2-3 with a double and a triple before Bobby pulled him for Lockhart [roll eyes], Vinny had a homer and a walk, Javy a homer and a single, and both scored in front of DeRosa’s triple. Mark scored the last run of the game on a passed ball; he also came home on a Furcal single.

The geniuses at MLB have decided that the appropriate time for the Braves-Giants Game Four on Saturday would be 3 PM CT. Opposite the Georgia/Alabama game. Really nice work guys.
