Mets 7, Braves 6 (14 innings)

on .

The Braves are finding more and more painful ways to lose games. This game was not well-played, but the Braves should have won until they self-destructed. With a 6-2 Braves lead in the bottom of the 7th, this happened: Mets 7th Adam A. LaRoche at first Kyle Davies pitching: Jose B. Reyes: Reyes singled to center. Paul Lo Duca: Strike looking, Lo Duca ground-rule doubled to left, Reyes to third. Macay McBride relieved Kyle Davies. Carlos Beltran: Ball, Beltran safe at first on 2nd baseman Giles' fielding error, Reyes scored, Lo Duca to third. Carlos Delgado: Delgado singled to right, Lo Duca scored, Beltran to second. Kenny Ray relieved Macay McBride. David Wright: Strike looking, Wright flied out to deep right, Beltran to third. Cliff Floyd: Floyd singled to right, Beltran scored, Delgado to second. Xavier Nady: Ball, Ball, Delgado to third, Floyd to second on passed ball, Intentional ball, Nady intentionally walked. Kaz Matsui: Ball, Foul, Ball, Matsui singled to center, Delgado scored, Floyd to third, Nady to second Julio Franco hit for Pedro Feliciano. Julio Franco: Franco grounded into double play shortstop to second to first, Matsui out at second. End of Inning (4 Runs, 5 Hits, 1 Error) The score stayed the same, and Remlinger got out of another miraculous jam in the 9th. The game went to extras, and then this happened: Braves 11th Wilson Betemit hit for Peter Moylan Billy Wagner pitching: Wilson Betemit: Strike looking, Foul, Foul, Ball, Ball, Betemit homered to center. Marcus Giles: Ball, Giles singled to left center. Edgar Renteria: Pickoff attempt to first, Ball, Strike looking, Strike looking, Renteria struck out looking. Chipper Jones: Foul, Ball, Giles stole second, Strike looking, Jones grounded out to second, Giles to third. Andruw Jones: Ball, Ball, Ball, Jones intentionally walked. Jeff Francoeur: Ball, Ball, Strike looking, Francoeur flied out to center. End of Inning (1 Run, 2 Hits, 0 Errors) Mets 11th Chris Reitsma pitching: Cliff Floyd: Ball, Floyd homered to right. Xavier Nady: Nady lined out to second. Kaz Matsui: Ball, Foul, Foul, Matsui lined out to pitcher Endy Chavez hit for Billy Wagner. Endy Chavez: Ball, Chavez fouled out to third. End of Inning (1 Run, 1 Hit, 0 Errors) Reitsma blew his 2nd save. In the bottom of the 14th, Beltran drew a one out walk off of Sosa (0-5), in to pitch because the Braves were out of relievers. He went to 2nd on a passed ball, then Wright knocked him in for the game-winner. Tonight, the Braves gave up 16 hits, 13 walks, and struck out 5. I felt sick for most of the game, as did most other Braves fans probably did. Davies pitched 6 plus innings before running out of gas in the 7th. You can see what happened above when that happened. He allowed 9 hits, 4 walks, and struck out 2. McBride pitched to 2 batters and allowed a hit and Renteria booted a grounder. Ray allowed 2 hits and a walk before getting a double play to get out of it. Villarreal started the 8th and allowed a leadoff triple and a walk, getting one out. Remlinger somehow got out of it with no damage. Peter Moylan somehow was the best pitcher tonight for the Braves, going 1.2 innings allowing no hits, a walk, and struck out 3. Reitsma pitched 2 innings and gave up a run. Sosa pitched the last 1.2 innings and gave up the losing run. Offensive contributors: Marcus Giles was 3-7, doubled twice, and scored twice. Brian Jordan, getting a start at 1st, was 2-4, doubled, and scored twice. Wilson Betemit hit a pinch-hit homer. Chipper Jones was 2-6, walked, had an RBI, and scored. Andruw Jones was 2-6, walked, and had an RBI. Brian McCann was 2-6, had 2 RBIs, and scored. Jeff Francoeur was 2-7 with an RBI. Edgar Renteria was 1-5, walked, and extended his hitting streak to 21 games. I don't want to talk about the standings right now. Tim Hudson faces Victor Zambrano tomorrow, and we'll probably see what else can possibly go wrong.
