That was huge. The Braves trailed 4-0 after two (homers off Wright by Thome and Lieberthal) and it was that way heading to the bottom of the fifth, when Andruw (quiescent through the series) stepped up with a single off of Millwood.

Wise tried either to bunt him over or bunt for a hit; whichever it was, the Phillies committed two errors on the play, and by the end Andruw had scored and Wise was at second. But after a walk Chipper (pinch-hitting again) and Furcal popped up, and it looked like another missed opportunity. Then Nick Green (trying to reassert his folk-hero status) singled Wise in, and Drew hit a three-run opposite field job. Andruw singled in another run to make it 6-4, and the bullpen crew of Alfonseca (who was good), Gryboski (who was bad), Reitsma (who bailed out Gryboski but got into a little trouble) and Smoltz (awesome) finished it.

The Mets held off the Marlins and everything is now as it was four days ago. The Braves have a day off before traveling to Detroit. As always, you can throw out the record books when the Braves and Tigers get together. Thank God and Bud for interleague play allowing us such storied matchups with our natural rivals.
