Game Recap 9/27/11

Written by Jeremy Reed on .

Phillies 7, Braves 1

There’s not much to say about this one that hasn’t already been written.  It feels like Bull Durham, except that the Braves started well and then forgot how to play baseball.  The Braves are depending upon the Astros, and that’s probably all that needs to be said.

The team desperately needed a vintage performance from Derek Lowe tonight, but Chase Utley dashed those dreams with a first inning home run.  It didn’t get better either.  The Phillies added two in the third and one in the fourth, and Lowe’s night was finished after a leadoff single in the fifth.  Homers from Pence and Rollins would make it 7-0 at the end of seven.  Game, set, and match.

The Braves’ offense was again MIA, AWOL, or whatever you want to call it.  The only run came on a ninth inning Prado home run.  Base runners = runs.  People have to get on to score, but the Braves managed five base runners in nine innings.  It’s hard to know whether to laugh or cry.

This probably sums it up the best:

Here’s hoping the Astros can do it again.
