– MLB – Box Score – Mets at Braves

This is unbelievably depressing. The Braves have now lost five games in a row, mostly with good pitching. Tonight, John Thomson made one mistake, allowing an opposite-field homer to Paul Lo Duca in the sixth, and finally got a decision because the Braves couldn’t score at all.

We can complain about Bobby loading the lineup with righthanders after watching that fail against Glavine for a decade, but Brian Jordan had two of the team’s five hits, and the other two against Glavine were by Renteria and another of the platoon guys, Diaz. The Braves’ only real scoring chance was erased when the other platoon guy, Pratt, had a soft liner taken down by Floyd in left.

Remlinger had a nice outing, coming in with two on and nobody out in the eighth and striking out two, then getting a pop fly to Chipper. See, that’s how you do it, Reitsma.

This horribly depressing sequence continues tomorrow. Can we put it all together, please?
