Uggla will be up with 2 outs and a runner in scoring position again……
I have never been such a huge fish fan as I am tonight
August 4th, 20129:21 pm
Solano squeezes home Reyes….
That sounds… weird.
three years huh? we are watching history being made tonight
August 4th, 20129:22 pm
Who will step up and have serious impact….??? ‘Stros are brewing a strong mix tonight.
Another sore armed reject pitcher…
4 straight outs.
The A Bomb
August 4th, 20129:23 pm
Champagne being delivered to Astros clubhouse….
Make it 5.
August 4th, 20129:24 pm
quick and easy unfortunately not painless
Uh-oh – Heath Bell in…
This is now getting laughable instead of frustrating…
Pathetic effort tonight.
Its Not Over!
August 4th, 20129:25 pm
This is pathetic. The Nats are giving the Braves a gift and they can’t beat the lowly Astros.
Not looking good with the weak sisters due up in the 9th (after McCann).
Nats win and we lose, blog will be a mess all night
And 6 straight for the dregs of pitching hell….
One more shot.
Completely dominated by the pathetic AAAstros.
August 4th, 20129:26 pm
This game is no fun.
Conflicted as I sit here at a short A stadium cheering for the Astros affiliate here in Troy, NY tonight….. But have the Braves game up on my phone.
No contact when contact needed…..we still got a chance….being Cabravesfanworthy I am.
Mac Uggla and Janish Due. Thinking ahead… You have to pinch run for Mac if he gets on. You have to bring in Pasternicky..
Need to pinch hit for Janish if not a bunt situation. Have to use Reed Johnson to pinch hit.
If pitchers spot comes up and if Johnson isn’t used then you have option of Ross/Fransisco. Probably use Ross if Mac is pinch ran for if not then Fransisco is the guy to PH.
That is what Fredi should do
August 4th, 20129:27 pm
Maholm just had to make two terrible mistakes to Justin Maxwell.
fence post Fred
August 4th, 20129:28 pm
or, as a Nationals fan might say…
This is pathetic. The Braves are giving the Nats a gift and they can’t beat the lowly Marlins.
“No-one knows for whom the Bell tolls,” but we will by the end of this inning.
I saw what people mean about Freddie’s lack of range just then.
That was pitiful looking…
MikeinFL – that’s the perfect perspective.
It’s not in my nature to say the game is lost until the game is over.
August 4th, 20129:31 pm
Good d from JHey
3 back staring us in the face.
Oh well. Maybe tomorrow.
lol the Astros….
August 4th, 20129:32 pm
Durbin had to keep this a 1 run game
Nats are 5-6 against the Fish this year, so it’s not like they don’t know they’re having some trouble with that team
Take Durbin out! He’s not fooling anyone.
August 4th, 20129:33 pm
And Heath Bell gets 2 Ks and a Harper groundout to validate my trust in him…
I have to admit that when they show FG in the dugout scratching his head I believe he is thinking “What would Chipper do?”
The durbinator needs a DP,
If Durbin gets out of this we have a good chance to tie aganist Wilton pathetic Lopez
Excellent time for DP
August 4th, 20129:34 pm
That’s our Chad!!!
We’ll be watching ‘Lopez Tonight,’ by George we need a run.
I called that!!!!
Can he hit?
Braves have been turning a lot of those lately.
Pitcher’s Best Friend – now last chance at bat – need at least a tie here.
no hanging Chad there
7IP 3ER 8K. Solid outing by Maholm.
Where did our bats go tonight??? 4 hits against the Astros
August 4th, 20129:35 pm
a bottom of the 9th game tying homer would be great but I hope they know to at least keep those homer swings in check
Braves have led the league in DPs much of the season IIRC
August 4th, 2012
That was funny……
August 4th, 20129:36 pm
SH**t I THOUGHT WRIGHT WOULD NOT BE IN THE 9TH SH**t SH**t
And just 6 last night… offense is in a mini-slump. It happens…
Lets go Mac….
August 4th, 20129:37 pm
Mac shouldnt stand there should swing the bat
August 4th, 20129:38 pm
Yeah, that was great Mac.
Nope, going oppo doesn’t compute.
Now they take him out!
two fb’s and three sliders – one out.
ok so maybe the Astros bullpen is just bad on paper
August 4th, 20129:39 pm
Awful at bat by Mac. Watch two fastballs down the middle and K on a breaking pitch. Well done.
And just 6 last night… offense is in a mini-slump. It happens…
Against the Astros. Even worse.
August 4th, 20129:40 pm
we shoulda traded for Wright
Looking ahead . You have to pinch hit Janish if Uggla doesn’t hit a homerun.
Johnson should PH for Janish
and if Johsnon gets on then Fransisco should come in for pitcher
No, Mike. It doesn’t just happen. Hitting inconsistency defines us and has for yrs.
August 4th, 20129:41 pm
Home Run Cut – Strike 1
1-11 in save chances.
But watch this….
Chip is a funny guy sometimes
Okay phil. It’s just us. We stink.
August 4th, 20129:42 pm
I’ll take it
We have a baserunner!!!!!!!!!!!
Prefered Johnson over Fransisco here.
Fransisco will probably strike out
From now on, I’ll call him “0-2ggla”.
August 4th, 20129:43 pm
Lets go Juan!
I was thinking Johnson over Fransisco, too. I hope I am wrong
You’re right phil, it’s defined us forever. Every season, every playoff game, every natl. broadcast, etc.
August 4th, 20129:44 pm
…..Win Stros win, win Stros win…hey Maholm what a you say….Stros are going to win today…la, la, la hey, hey hey……it’s always going to happen when you throw that way.
Wow – just wow.
What a surprise.
Winning 2 out of 3 in this series is not a success.
I gotta blame this one on the bats. No reason for so many LOB
Losing against the Astros; the ultimate embarrassment.
The Astros’ THIRD win since July 1st!!
Way to go, Braves!!!
Fran Fran he’s the man….
Juan has clearly lost weight…..
Good for him. But way to hit into the easy DP….
Can’t wait to read the quotes tonite – especially from some of the ‘hitters’
August 4th, 20129:45 pm
Need to get as many on base as possible in that situation to up the pressure. Better to pinch hit with Johnson first and then use Francisco.
August 4th, 20129:46 pm
All three hitters fell behind 0-2 in the 9th and all three saw first pitch fastball right down the middle.
We talk baseball, other sports, music, movies, BBQ and whatever (except politics or religion)
