Runner on 3rd, less than 2 outs and we don't score.

Braves' defense played to concede a run. All Nate has to do is make contact . . .
And now here come the Braves with 2 on, no out.
That swooshing sound was the momentum leaving PNC.

WOW! Braves load the bases with no one out and Maholm gets out of it without giving up a run! Great job!

Andy LaRoche fundamental baseball: Pushes ball to right side and sacrifices Moss home.

1-0 Pirates!

Moss with another triple and one oout. This time Andy gets the grounder to score him. Two young kids. That's what I'm looking for.

Atta boy Andy. Nothing wrong with that AB at all. Nice work. Nate, take notes.

I guess Cox didn't read the other thread, has his leadoff bunt over runner with noo outs.

You think Cox understands the value of a run in this game given Maholm and Jurrjens on the mound?

Assuming that's not rhetorical, yes, I'd say Cox thinks runs will be at a premium this game.

Nate McLouth is terrible on defense. Get on with your life.

It was rhetorical.

Well, considering no runs were scored, do you think Cox is rethinking his decision to bunt?

Question for the Board: anyone else post while driving 85 on the interstate and listening to the game on the radio? It is making my 300 mile drive go very quickly.
