Stop the Presses: Francoeur Walks

on .

Unbelievable. Shocking. Amazing. You simply couldn't make it up. With two on, two out, and two down, Frenchy walked to the load the bases when normally he'd be swining for the fences on the first pitch. Anyway, the second story of the night was that the Braves lost a close game after another strong Smoltz start. Nothing really happened until the 8th -- Smoltz was on a two hitter at that point and the scores were still locked at 0-0. A couple of Nats batters body blocked the plate (HBP) and before you knew it there were a couple of base runners. Two hits later and the Braves were down 2-0. Chad Cordero, who is normally a top draw closer, has a 4.66 ERA in 27 games against the Braves. He almost added to that tonight. The ninth went: Renteria flew out, Chipper singled, Andruw walked, McCann got caught looking, Frenchy WALKED, and finally, with the bases loaded, Thorman struck out to end the game. It's frustrating that the Braves (again) wasted another strong Smoltz start but you'd have taken a 7-2 record at this point. We welcome the Fish tonight. It is Redman with his 7.94 ERA vs the D-Train. Hey, 7-3 from your first 10 games ain't too bad.
