ESPN – Braves vs. Marlins – Box Score – September 02, 2008

Yeah, like the Falcons and Dolphins could combine for 30 points.

Terrible, terrible ballgame featuring one team that has given up and one team that is rapidly free-falling. I am not going to summarize the whole thing because that is way too much effort to put into this ballclub. Simply put, the Braves took a 1-0 lead in the first, but Charlie Morton gave up three runs in the bottom of the inning. They rallied again to make it 6-3 in the third and 10-3 in the fourth, but Morton and Carlyle immediately gave most of that back, making it 10-9.

The Marlins then got four more to take a 13-10 lead in the fifth, only to see the Braves answer in the sixth to make it 14-13. It stayed that way for awhile but Bobby brought in George Julius to pitch the eighth and he was lucky to keep it tied at 14. They got two in the ninth to make it 16-14 and Gonzalez got the save this time.

The Braves had 21 hits. Only one was by Jeffy, but it was a three-run homer. Infante and KJ had four hits each, and slugging first baseman Martin Prado had three. Tavarez had a good outing, getting out of a bases-loaded one-out situation he inherited from the completely bushed Ohman.
