Again the Braves grabbed victory in the bottom of the ninth inning, but this time, it was just moments before the Cardinals wrapped up their victory over the Marlins and retook first place in the NLC. There’s a certain justice to that. With four errors and the shittiest parade of late-inning pitching we’ve seen all season, it would have been hard to feel good about holding on to that title after such a performance.
But what now? Come back and get ’em tomorrow? Or (heart) broken for the season? If it depends on Dusty Baker’s fundamentals, motivation, or leadership…well, it was a hell of a run while it lasted, eh?
