(or at least seen it on TV live)
ATLANTA (AP) — The Atlanta Braves did it again, pulling off another improbable comeback when Chipper Jones hit a three-run homer in the 11th inning to beat the Florida Marlins 6-4 on Wednesday night.
The Braves overcame a 5-0 deficit to win the opener of the series 11-8, then came back in both the ninth and 11th innings to pull out a 4-3 victory on Tuesday. They followed the exact same script for their fourth comeback win in five games — Jeff Francoeur hit a walk-off grand slam to beat Washington 8-5 over the weekend.
Atlanta (20-20) won for the eighth time in 10 games, got to .500 for the first time since April 23 and closed to 4Â½ games of the first-place New York Mets in the NL East.
(p.s. mets lost woohoo, actually did see the last inning of that game on tv.. nice save by Isi)
so Braves are 3-3 after six
They have scored 48 runs
They have allowed 47 runs
TEAM Batting Stats
11 Home Runs (3rd in MLB)
28 Walks (3rd in MLB)
63 Hits (1st in MLB)
So the offense is there.
the starting pitching is getting beat up
TEAM Pitching Stats
7.76 ERA (2nd worst in MLB)
1.88 WHIP (walks and hits per inning– 3rd worst in MLB)
Allowing 65 Hits (worst in MLB) & .401 OBA (4th worst)
47 Runs (worst in MLB)
44 Earned Runs (worst)
only 3 Home Runs actually, which is the 2nd lowest amount..
so once the pitching relaxes like it will, i have pretty good faith in a good run this year!
