Really, there's not too much to say about this game. It kind of sucked (from a Braves persepecitve) on all levels. Tommy Hanson may have struck out a bunch of guys, but he was prone to some run-scoring innings with the help of the lights at Turner Field and Nate McLouth. But we can't just blame McLouth.
He had two leadoff doubles and came around to score on one of them, of course, we could have used one of those doubles when he struck out looking in the second inning with the bases loaded. Basically the Braves couldn't convert anything all night. And when we did finally get to the Arizona bullpen they threw the new guy at us which actually worked. Of course by that point our bullpen had botched the game so bad that it was out of reach.
What you need to know is that Jesse Chavez was so bad that he gave up as many runs in one inning as Tommy Hanson gave up in seven innings. Maybe we should trade Jesse to Arizona.
No really, Rodrigo Lopez was in command all night and kept the Braves hitters in check. And Tommy Hanson didn't have his best game. He was pitching for a DerekLoweWin, but that wasn't in the cards tonight.
Let's try and go get 'em tomorrow. That's about all you can say about this game. Yeah, I started drinking in the fifth inning.
