– MLB – Recap – Dodgers at Braves

The excitement never ends, huh? The Braves scored two in the ninth to beat “A. Lopez”, which briefly I thought must be Albie but turns out to be Aquilino. The runs scored on a botched double-play turned error. The Braves totalled only six hits on the day, nobody with more than one. Jordan was 0-2, Langerhans 0-1 in a pinch-hitting role. Andruw and Mondesi both had hits.

As for the pitchers, the Dodgers got single runs off of someone named Childers, probably Matt, and off of someone named Almonte, probably Hector. Two innings, four strikeouts, two walks, and a hit off of Adam Bernero, whom I’m sort of keeping an eye on under the theory that there must be some reason he keeps getting chances and it’s sure not that he’s had any success. Thomson (two shutout innings, a walk, a hit, a strikeout) and Reitsma (one inning, a hit) were the only real pitchers in evidence. Braves fans booed JD Drew, which is unfair but not entirely unexpected.
