Game Time: 7:10pm on

That wasn't the Mark Redman we expected to see, but the result was certainly expected. The Braves once again couldn't make anything happen against solid pitching. We can cream bad pitching and mistakes, but we can't do anything against good pitchers. Somehow we have to find a way to manufacture runs instead of sitting back and either swinging for the fences or striking out.

Huddy gets us going for a three game series in New York against the Mets. We have our top three starters going, so I for one am hoping for good things from this weekend. It would also be nice to get this 10-day road trip off to a good start.
