Two in a Row
Another nice win by the Braves tonight. This game seemed to be heading in the wrong direction after the Mets scored 3 runs in the 4th inning spurred by an apparent missed call by the 3rd base ump on Jose Reyes' leadoff triple. However Reyes helped the Braves out in the 8th by booting a routine grounder that allowed the tying run score. Chipper hit a long bomb in the 8th and Hinske hit one out in the 9th to give the Braves the lead. Venters and Kimbrel once again showed their nasty stuff and held the fort down for the win.
