These are the leads that the Braves blew in the game tonight, the last in eleventh inning.
These are the pitchers who appeared for the Braves tonight. Sosa took the loss, but as usual, it was Reitsma’s fault; he’s the one who gave up the game-tying homer to Cliff Floyd in the eleventh.
Davies was “effectively wild” for six innings, walking four and pitching behind in the count at other times, but allowed just two runs. But he tired, and McBride and Ray couldn’t hold the lead.
James left the game with an apparent injury in the ninth, which really threw things out of whack. Moylan was great (three strikeouts) but then Reitsma blew the lead. Out of pitchers, Sosa had to come in, and as usual threw a shutout inning then gave up a double to lose it.
Marcus had three hits; Chipper, Andruw, Jordan, and McCann all had two. Betemit hit a pinch-hit homer that would have won it if Reitsma were a real closer. Renteria kept his hit streak going. Reitsma is probably Satan.
