Nationals Finish off Braves

on .

Instead of watching the game yesterday, I was learning Torts in my bar exam class.† Instead of writing the recap last night, I was violently ill from some bad mexican food.† Yesterday wasn't my day, and apparently it wasn't the Braves day either. Who would have thought earlier this week that the Braves would drop 3 out of 4 to the Nationals?† Certainly not me.† Unfortunately, it happened.† Chuck James had yet another unimpressive start.† I'm left pondering where the James from the end of last season has gone.† He pitched 5 1/3rd innings and gave up 8 hits, 3 earned runs and two walks.† Then, much to my chagrin, Bobby Cox once again went to Chad Paronto.† He came in with a 3-2 lead and left the Braves losing 4-3 after facing only two batters.† The first was Nationals pitcher, Dmitri Young, who hit a single to tie the game at 3-3.† Next up was leadoff hitter, Felipe Lopez, who hit an RBI triple to give the Nats the 4-3 lead.† Even taking into consideration that Paronto came in with a runner on third, it was not a†good appearance. The offense was more than a little lacking, except for the bat of leadoff hitter Matt Diaz.† Diaz went 2 for 4 last night in the leadoff role as KJ was out of the lineup for the evening.† Renteria, Chipper and Thorman had the only other hits of the game.† Renteria and Francouer had the only walks of the game. I always like to end on a positive note, so here it is:†Yates and Moylan combined for 2 2/3rds hitless†innings.† Each gave up a walk and Moylan gave up a hit, but they otherwise looked good.† Final Score: Braves 3, Nats 4 Tonight's game in Boston has already been rained out.† A doubleheader is scheduled for tomorrow with games at 1:05 and 7:35.
