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.
