Marlins 6, Braves 4

on .

Wilson Betemit lost a pop-up in the lights with 2 outs in the bottom of the 8th, opening the door for a 4 run Marlins rally. Jorge Sosa only pitched to one batter and got him out before a 3 hour and 10 minute rain delay knocked him out of the game. Chuck James pitched 3.2 scoreless innings, giving up 3 hits, walked 2, and struck out 2. Anthony Lerew gave up a 2 run homer in 2 innings of work. Jim Brower pitched a scoreless 7th. Macay McBride ended up being charged with 2 runs in 2/3 of an inning, but deserved better. If Betemit catches the ball, the inning is over with no runs scored. Instead, Kolb (3-8) immediately came in the game, walked a batter and allowed 2 straight hits to lose it, and gave up 2 runs himself. At least he has all but taken himself of the playoff roster. The Braves jumped out to a 3-0 lead, thanks to a Chuck James RBI single in his first ML at-bat and a Ryan Langerhans 2 run homer. After Lerew gave up a 2 run homer to Jeremy Hermida to make it 3-2, Adam LaRoche added a pinch-hit RBI single to make the lead 4-2 before the 8th inning. Offensive contributors: Ryan Langerhans was 1-3 with a 2 run homer, his 8th of the season, scored twice, and was HBP. Julio Franco was 1-2 and walked twice. Chuck James was 1-1 with his first career hit and RBI in his first career at-bat (the relief pitcher!). Chipper Jones walked twice. Both the Astros and Phillies won. If the Astros win tomorrow or if the Phillies lose, the Astros win the Wild Card. If the Astros lose and the Phillies win, there will be a 1 game playoff in Philadelphia on Monday. So, the Braves may not know who they'll play for a little while longer. Horacio Ramirez will go against Cy Young candidate Dontrelle Willis tomorrow afternoon in the regular season finale.
