The Braves fell behind 1-0 in the first without giving up a hit. In the second, Derek Lowe hit a one-out two-run double to make it 2-1. They couldn’t get any more runs, and blew several other chances to get more.
The Reds got more; three runs on three doubles and two singles in the sixth. Lowe didn’t even get out of the inning. Down 4-2, it was time for a visit from the Proctologist. He and the List combined for seven runs in the top of the eighth, which at least kept the pressure off.
