Game 94 Recap: Giants 1, Braves 8

Whatever we're doing, let's keep doing it. Baseball Musing had a great headline about the outing by the Giants' starter, Ryan Sadowski, that read, "Sad Night for Sadowski." How true. The Braves seem to be doing everything right the last few days. Tonight, 6 of the Braves 8 runs came with two outs -- 4 by Brian McCann, who chased Sadowski with a 3-run jack to straight-away center field in the fourth inning.

Derek Lowe kept his run of good starts going with a quality start in which he had his sinker working -- 11 groundouts to 3 flyouts. He wasn't lights out, but he pitched a very Derek Lowe-esque game by managing the trouble and holding the opposition to mostly singles.

The bullpen got some good work in and finished out the win for Atlanta. I could go on, but it was just a good overall game. Hitting from everywhere in the order, and once we got even a 4-run lead I felt we had the game won with the way the Giants offense is. After it was 8-to-1 it was a cakewalk. Let's hope we can keep the momentum rolling against one of the best pitchers in baseball tomorrow.
