Atlanta Braves Lose To Colorado Rockies: One Run In 18 Innings Are Your Braves
The Atlanta Braves continue to be the most inconsistent team in baseball, losing to the Colorado Rockies at home again, 5-1. Derek Lowe pitched well once again, but the Braves couldn’t get the offense going.
Jason Marquis just pitched a better game in front of a pitifully low turnout at Turner Field for the 18-19 Braves.
The Braves are now 6-11 at Turner Field, this time in front of 15,364, the smallest paid crowd since the stadium opened in 1997. Disgusting.
Marquis is coming off two games in which he allowed 16 runs–yes 16 runs–to opposing teams. Lowe, on the other hand, was trying to become the National Leagues six-win pitcher.
The Braves gave now lost 3 of 4 games thanks to a struggling offense and a very scary bullpen that can go from lights out pitching to closing hell.
On one other note, Tom Glavine is scheduled to start rehab this weekend.
