    might need to cut out the standings from the paper tomorrow. Could be the last time we are in 1st for a while.

    Good thing is we have Tim Hudson on the mound today.

    So, those people last winter questioning the Braves resigning Hudson and trading Vasquez... how's that one working out?

    :p

    I was about to ask who our pitcher was today.

    Last I checked it was Lowe. Though that was before the series actually started, and occasionally (if rarely) the order does change...

    Yep, Lowe's still listed as the starter. Matched up against Kyle Kendrick.

    2-1, nice. Great outing for Lowe!

    Next up: a 4 game series at the Dodgers... wonder if Tunick's going to any of those games.

    9 straight wins... and a 3 game lead in the East :)

    Worried about seeing Saito exit late with an injury... hopefully it won't be serious. Didn't look bad, but sometimes its really tough to tell.

    That was really unfortunate yesterday. Kawakami is now 0-8. :(

    :mad:

    Such a waste, RISP in both the 9th and 10th. On the bright side, I was really impressed with Johnny Venters, especially for a rookie.

    Couple losses in a row... but the Phillies have also lost their last two, so the Braves haven't lost any ground in the division.

    'Course, there's still a ton of baseball left to be played :p

    according to the power rankings we've moved up to 3rd place.

    It states:
    You have to go back to Milwaukee to find a streak like the one the Braves compiled last week -- a nine-game winning streak in which the opponent scored three runs or fewer each time. Atlanta was 20-6 (7-0-2 in nine series) since losing two of three in Philadelphia in early May.

    Epic fail tonight, McLouth and Heyward collide and let by an inside-the-park home run. And Kawakami once again with no win, even though he gave up no runs and only 4 hits.

    I was really impressed with Kris Medlen the night before, though, it's not often that a pitcher contributes so much to the offense or is willing to go all out like he did with that slide into home. One of the reasons why I like the NL better than the AL.
