Sheffield with Walk off Homer in Bottom of 9th for Braves Sweep

Down go the Cards...2-1 the final. Only 1 hit given up by Atlanta pitchers (8 innings by Moss and 1 by Smoltz who got the win). Day off tomorrow....

Oh, and he hit it one handed too.

Best part of this game was Joe Morgan's insistance that Marquis was out when you could clearly see his left foot slide over the bag, before he stumbled off to the side. Poor Miller kept trying to sneak in that he thought he was safe, but Morgan just wouldn't shut up. I'm surprised that play didn't lead into a story about how the Big Red Machine would never had let that happen.

They're not nearly as bad as they used to be, or as bad as Ligtenberg's are.

Wonder who has the worst mullet in Baseball? Randy Johnson used too...Curt was sporting a nice mullet for a while too...

i turned the game on late.. and moss had a 1 hitter through 8 innings, without allowing an earned run.. yet he was losing 1-0 thanks to the braves error..
definitly would have been a tough loss to take.. good think the braves rallied in the 8th and 9th.. although it sucks that they waited so late that he ended up with a no decision.
benes pitched a pretty good game too.. good thing pujols cant catch

I think Benes throwing 79-83 MPH consistently was totally throwing the Braves hitters off. But then Veres shows up throwing the same speed, and by then Sheffield was ready for it.

Nice way to ruin Andy's ass kicking outing. It figures good ol' Veres would give up a walk off homer. Ishringhausen wasn't even in town because his wife is giving birth.
