San Diego 11 Atlanta 6

ESPN.com – MLB – Recap

That’s no good. Wright went only 2/3 of an inning, giving up five runs, including two on bases-loaded walks. Tim Drew came in to give up the other six in 3 1/3; it was 9-0 before the Braves scored. Wright had had some control difficulties in recent starts, but nothing like this, and the Braves can’t afford for him to relapse.

The Braves got most of their runs in the last two innings off of the back of the Padres’ bullpen. The one run they scored off of Peavy was a solo homer by Chipper, who’s now homered in five straight… The Braves struck out 13 times. None of them were by Andruw, yet it is almost certainly entirely his fault.

The Marlins and Phillies both lost, so continue to trail by 8 and 8 1/2 respectively… The conclusion of the series is a night game again tonight, which once again there’s no way I’ll be able to stay up for. Then the Braves begin a now-rare four-game series in LA.

  1. The Magic number is what, 37? Also, if the season were to end today, the Braves would play the Dodgers, so this series should be watched closely. The Giants are on a run, and now both they and the Padres are in front of the Cubs for the Wild Card. Oh, and the Phillies miss the playoffs again.

  2. Watching that game was like having a nightmare. I kept falling asleep on the couch, and every time I woke up the Braves were further behind.

    I sure am glad to see Chipper’s HR swing back. Considering the time he’s missed, 21 HRs is pretty darn good. A quick look at the stats shows he’s hitting a HR every 16 ABs, which is what he did in 2000 when he had 36.
