I hate this team. I hate it, and I wish it would go away.
The Braves got a run in the first off of Tom Glavine, but as usual wasted an opportunity for more, leaving the bases loaded. The Mets tied it in the next inning, the offense went back into hibernation mode, and the Mets got a 3-1 lead with a two-run homer from Wright in the fifth. Since the Braves can’t come back from two runs down, and even if they did would only lose in extra innings, that was the ballgame. Smoltz got hung with a loss he didn’t deserve, but then so do lots of guys.
The Braves did get a run in the ninth. McCann doubled leading off, and KJ singled home Woodhead who ran for him. But Bobby sent up Stinky Pete Orr to pinch-bunt, and Stinky Pete predictably failed, and the next two guys grounded out anyway. They’re pathetic.
