Those Pesky Braves

Sometimes a team can win even in defeat.

Last time we played the Braves, we lost by over ten runs and the game was called early due to the "mercy rule." Tonight, we gave 'em a ballgame, and lost by a much closer score (5-3), and therefore the Diamondbacks "won" in the sense that they improved against this very tough team. What more can you ask for? Third time should be a charm...

Jack caught all but the last inning and went 1-3 at the plate, with a run-scoring double off the Braves pitchter, his very good friend Zach. It was a tough AB (at bat) for me and Zach's mom, sitting next to each other on the bleachers at West Union field. :)

Next up: The Yankees, Thursday, at Sunset Park
