Florida Marlins vs. Atlanta Braves – Box Score – September 29, 2009 – ESPN

Ooh, that’s one for the Miserable Braves Loss Type-Index. It’s the old Rally to Tie the Game Only to Immediately Allow Them To Retake the Lead. Sucks, really. Good thing I didn’t have any hope!

Tim Hudson didn’t really have it tonight, allowing four runs in five innings of work. He was really lucky that was all it was; he allowed seven hits, including a homer, and also walked three. He’s been better than we could have expected coming off of ligament replacement surgery, but his ERA is over four now. But he got out of it without a loss.

The Braves trailed 4-1 entering the bottom of the sixth, after Kawakami got through the top of the inning. With one out, Diaz hit a three-run homer to tie the game. If momentum really meant anything in baseball, you’d think that sort of thing would have crippled the Marlins, but they came right off the mat. Kawakami gave up a leadoff double, then after a bunt and an intentional walk allowed a sac fly single to give the Marlins a 5-4 lead.

The Braves had their chances to get back in it. With two out in the seventh, McCann walked and ACHE singled him to third, but Yunel grounded out on the first pitch, to the pitcher. Infante singled with two out in the eighth, but McLouth struck out, and Prado singled leading off the ninth but Chipper grounded into a double play.
