Just As We Expected...Braves 3, Mets 1

Well we got the pitchers duel we expected. Smoltz gets the better of Pedro going 7 strong innings, allowing just 1 run on 7 hits.

And guess what! The bullpen pitched 2 scoreless innings!! Even Reitsma got an inning in without allowing a run!

My new favorite player, Kyle "The Wild Thing" Farnsworth notched the save with a scorelss 9th striking out Ramon Castro and Victor Diaz.

And surprise, surprise, Andruw drives in 2 of the 3 Braves runs.

Elsewhere in the NL East, the Marlins won and the Phillies lost. The Braves now have a 6 1/2 game lead over Florida and a 7 game lead over Philadelphia.

Tomorrow we go for the sweep before a much needed off day on Thursday.
