Dbacks 10, Braves 9

on .

Reitsma blew the save and lost the game in the 9th. The Braves scored 5 runs in the top of the 1st inning, highlighted by a LaRoche grand slam. They didn't score again until the 7th. Thomson didn't have it, giving up 6 runs on 8 hits, 3 walks, and only struck out 1 in 5.2 innings. McBride pitched the 7th and gave up a run. Remlinger pitched a scoreless 8th. Reitsma gave up 2 runs in the 9th. Bobby looked pissed and it's very possible Reitsma just lost the closer's position. After Arizona came back from a 5-0 deficit to take an 8-6 lead, the Braves scored 2 runs in the 8th to tie it on a Chipper 2 RBI single. Then in the 9th McCann hit a leadoff double, Francoeur got him to 3rd, and LaRoche knocked pinch-runner Orr in to give the Braves a 9-8 lead. Then Reitsma did his thing. His ERA is 6.50. He has only struck out 8 in 18 innings. He sucks. Offensive contributors: Adam LaRoche was 3-5 with his 6th homer, had 5 RBIs, and scored. Chipper Jones was 3-4, walked, had 2 RBIs and scored. John Thomson was 2-2. Brian McCann was 1-3, doubled, walked twice, had an RBI and scored twice. Ryan Langerhans was 2-5 and scored. Edgar Renteria was 1-3, walked twice, and scored twice. Matt Diaz had a pinch-hit double and scored. Francoeur's hitting streak was snapped. The Mets won, the Phillies lost. 4.5 games back. Arizona will probably win tomorrow, as spot starter Travis Smith goes against ace Brandon Webb.
