ESPN – Braves vs. Mets – Box Score – August 20, 2008

What a horrible ballclub. Jair Jurrjens didn’t have it tonight, and wasn’t helped by awful defense in a first inning in which he gave up five runs on four singles (one of the infield variety), two walks, and two errors. Only three of the runs were scored “earned”, but you know what I think about that.

The Braves actually cut into the lead, but I never thought that there was any chance of a comeback. I know this team too well. Blanco singled in Jeffy in the third. In the sixth, a run scored on a bases-loaded double play by McCann, who is slumping and maybe should also go on the shutdown list, or at least take more time off. Escobar came home on a wild pitch to make it 6-3.

I could write more but I don’t feel like it.
