ERV Boxscore for July 26, at Atlanta

Baseball sucks. It gives you all this information, all these clues, making you think you can understand why teams win or why they lose. And then you get a game like this. Yogi had it right, in baseball, nobody knows nothin'.

I had survived this miserable July reasonably well, on the theory that our lineup was so pathetically bad that to expect to win those games was foolhardy. No expectations. Tonight was different. Solid lineup, ace pitcher, ace closer, ace setup man -- and we blow another lead and lose like that. Going into the bottom of the ninth, I thought we had turned the corner, but instead we hit a brick wall.

This was game 100. We can't afford to lose this way anymore.

I'm assuming you gave Vidro 'credit' for both DPs?

The LDP seems like one of those fluky things. He probably should get the 'credit' for hitting into it, but it's hard to blame him for hitting the ball hard to the wrong spot.
