Oh What a Night!

Now this is what baseball is all about! The Braves finally fight back and give us some hope by scoring 4 times in the 8th inning to come back and defeat the Florida Marlins, 4-3.

At the same time, over in Cincinnati, the Phillies mounted a comeback of their own scoring 5 times in the 9th inning to nip the Reds, 11-10.

Is this game great or what??!!!!

With 8 games to go, Atlanta's magic number is now 5. A Braves win tomorrow would officially eliminate Florida. Atlanta sends John Thomson out to face the Marlins' Brian Moehler.

Kudos to the Braves bullpen and rookies who really pulled together tonight to show what they're made of. Boyer, Langerhans, McCann, Francoeur...good job boys!
