Man, that has to suck for the Marlins. This is the sort of game we lose.
The Braves took a 3-0 lead in the first, but Jair Jurrjens, who really needs to be shut down, had nothing at all. He gave up a two-run homer to Commando Cody in the second, and left after giving up four runs in the third. It stayed 6-3 for awhile, then Sammons singled in Francoeur (who had a good game, two hits and a walk) to cut the lead to two. Unfortunately, Tavarez came in and gave up a two-run homer.
In the eighth, the Braves loaded the bases with none out, but Sammons and McCann (pinch-hitting) couldn’t get anyone in. Blanco and Escobar, however, drew walks to make it 8-6. Ohman (who really, really, should have been traded) gave up a run in the top of the ninth, making it 9-6.
Then the bottom of the inning. Infante singled, and Marvelous Martin doubled him in. Francoeur came through with a single to cut it to 9-8. KJ singled, and went to second on the throw to get the winning run to scoring position. Sammons popped up. Mark Kotsay hasn’t been traded yet, and pinch-hit, getting intentionally walked. Blanco grounded out, but beat the relay to tie the game and extend the inning. Escobar (who had previously walked three times) had his first hit, singling in the winning run. Weird. Ohman got the decision.
