This game is a rematch of Game 2 of the NL Wild Card series, which the Braves won 5-0, though Luis Castillo allowed just a lone run. A repeat result would be just fine, though this Cincinnati attack isn’t nearly as soporific as that one was... and the Atlanta offense is considerably worse as well. Anyway, we’ll see what happens.
The Braves remain with nearly-moribund postseason aspirations, and we keep waiting for a long stretch of victories. Maybe a win today is part of an eventual long winning streak, or other span of great baseball. We’ll see.
