– MLB – Recap

So much for the Marlins. John Thomson had another fine start, going seven innings, allowing one run (in the first), striking out four and allowing four hits and two walks. He’s now 14-8 with a 3.73 ERA.

Horacio Ramirez pitched the eighth. He wasn’t especially effective, allowing a run on two hits and a walk, but it was his first major league action in months. Colon pitched the ninth, allowing another run.

The Braves got five of their six runs in the third. Perez and Betemit walked, but Thomson bunted into a double play. But then five straight Braves reached. Thomas (leading off for the second straight game) singled in a run, Green singled, and Marrero walked to load the bases. Chipper singled in two, then Julio doubled in two more. Julio had another big game, 3-4 with two doubles.

Bobby now has 1998 career wins. He’ll go for 2000 against, suitably, the Mets. Tomorrow’s game will be on TBS, but unfortunately Trachsel is pitching.
