New York Mets vs. Atlanta Braves – Box Score – September 18, 2011 – ESPN.

The Braves were able to strand even more runners than the Mets, and the Mets won the game long after both starters were gone.

After a couple of uneventful innings, the Braves took the lead in the third when Chipper Jones doubled home Michael Bourn. But Brandon Beachy then had a catastrophe inning in which he walked the bases loaded, then walked the pitcher to tie it, then gave up a three-run double to make it 4-1. And then the Braves tied it up in the bottom of the fourth. Alex Gonzalez homered leading off, Jason Heyward walked, Beachy bunted, Bourn drove Heyward in, Prado singled, Chipper loaded the bases on a walk, and Dan Uggla drove in the tying run with the bases loaded on a groundout. After Brian McCann was walked intentionally, the Braves left the bases loaded. They left fifteen men on for the game.

The Braves took the lead in the bottom of the seventh; AAG doubled with one out and came home on a Freddie Freeman single. But Jonny Venters lost the strike zone — it’s hard to blame him, the thing was hiding all day — and eventually loaded the bases and walked in a run before the Mets got the lead on a single; the last out came on a play at the plate.

The Braves got two walks in the eighth, but couldn’t get a hit. Craig Kimbrel allowed a two-out solo homer to make it 7-5, and the Braves, after getting the first two on in the ninth, again couldn’t get a run. Against Manny Acosta. I feel sick.
