There’s really nothing you can do. Brandon Webb is really good right now, probably in the process of locking up his second straight Cy Young, and a valiant effort by Lance Cormier, who had allowed just one run heading into the eighth, went for naught. The Braves managed only three baserunners — a double by KJ in the fourth, a single from Francoeur in the fifth, and a walk by Teixeira in the seventh. They only struck out six times, but didn’t make solid contact at all. Even the hits were little squirrely things.
Cormier allowed a solo homer in the third, and that was essentially the ballgame. On his 104th pitch, in the eighth inning, he allowed a two-run homer to kill any lagging hope. He was good, and it’s still a quality start. Yates gave up a homer in the ninth, but it really didn’t matter any.
That’s your recap. There’s really nothing else to say. Let’s get them tomorrow.
