-- vs.

Game Time: 7:35pm on

We just can't seem to capture a sweep. For whatever reason we seem to be able to win just two out of three in series of late (Philadelphia not withstanding). Against the last place Giants you almost expect to sweep, but I guess I'd take 2-of-3 against the first place D'Backs if we can get it done.

Chuck James also picked a bad spot for his worst outing of the year. He really had his homerun ball working last night. Perhaps Chuck is going to have to start paying more attention to the batters he's facing.

If you were at the ballpark last night you didn't have the opportunity to boo Bar', but I think we got two days of solid booing in - good work Atlanta.
