It's enough that the Braves can't muster a single run, but to lose the game in the 9th inning and be buried by a pinch hit 3 run homer from career .165 hitter, Shane Victorino, is horrific.
The Braves came up with just 6 hits and only 1 extra base hit (a double by Furcal) today. On top of that, they couldn't even work out a walk!
Hudson pitched great for 8 innings, but he just wore down in the 9th. You can't blame Cox for sticking with Tim though. The bullpen just isn't reliable.
The Phillies leave Atlanta for Cincinnati behind the Braves by just 4 games, while Atlanta welcomes in Florida.
The Phillies have 3 games left with the Reds, Mets, and Nationals. The Braves must play the Marlins 6 times and the Rockies 3.
You still have to like the Braves chances up 4 games with 9 to play, but this race is still far from over.
