Lance Cormier is very bad.
Cormier allowed six runs in two innings. It wasn’t entirely his fault — Francoeur managed to turn a single into three runs by overrunning it, letting the ball go to the wall — but frankly Cormier sucks and if he had been allowed to continue would have allowed many more runs. The bullpen did pretty well, allowing four hits over the remaining seven innings.
Marcus hit a homer leading off the game, then singled in Prado and L’il Tony (who doubled!) in the second. But the Braves got shut down from there until the eighth, when Andruw doubled in Renteria. But after an infield single by Francoeur, the LOOGY got McCann and Prado, and that was that. The Braves actually outhit the Marlins, 11-10.
I really can’t think of anything interesting to say here. There probably isn’t anything.
