Patience! Patience! What Patience?

As soon as the inning started, Joe Simpson exclaims, "Braves must be patient with Clippard on the mound". It was as if the first few batters of the inning heard his words from the broadcast booth. It would seem to me that if you were a player and you saw that being patient was working, you would do the same exact thing that was working for the previous batters. Dan Uggla did the exact opposite for some reason. Now, I understand that Clippard threw some good pitches but it looked like being patient would have at least gave Uggla a hitter's count that would have maybe gave him a better pitch to make contact on. Chris Johnson was the same way, but it's easier to forgive him when he is batting over .300 on the season. It seems as if Uggla has had this problem all season, The homerun balls are great and fun for everyone, but if the Braves cannot get patience from the bottom of the lineup, I think it's only a matter of time before the Braves are playing with the Phillies right there or ahead in the standings. Got to get more patient at the plate.
