Game 4: Braves v Pirates 5/19/16

We lost by 6 runs, so I'm going to stick to my two paragraph rule. Folty sucked and was gone after 3 innings having given up 5 runs, 4 earned, 7 hits, and a dinger. The bullpen gave up 3 runs in 6 innings, which HILARIOUSLY ENOUGH IS A QUALITY START! Except it didn't happen for the starters, it happened for the pen, so that's not going to count. Also Flowers had a passed ball and Folty threw a wild pitch, one of which cost us a run. I'm still amazed we can't figure out how to get the ball from the pitcher to the catcher with supreme certainty on a daily basis. It vexes me. I'm terribly vexed.

What else? Uh, we scored 2 runs on 7 hits and went 1-12 with RISP. One for twelve? That's awful. I mean at some point you can fall ass-backwards into a few of those hits and maybe get some runs, but we were down 5-0 by the 3rd so I'm not sure it really mattered one way or the other. At least we didn't commit any errors because Eric Aybar choked on a chicken bone and had to go to the hospital. I'm not sure what ticks me off more about that: the fact he eats with all the grace of a Labrador, or that he was actually in the lineup before his wing fiasco. Either way, his new nickname is Boner. Good job, Boner.

Braves lose 8-2.
