Final score: Atlanta 5, Pittsburgh 4. If youre reading the log after the conclusion of the game, youre going to want to start from the bottom and scroll to the top. Ill provide a recap later tonight.
3:54: Prado grounds to a drawn-in Walker at third, and Neil hurries an off-line throw to the plate. For what it's worth, Freddy wouldn't have made the play either. Scott Rolen might've.
3:53: Romulo's down to about 90-93 mph on the gun. I haven't seen 94 in awhile.
3:52: Hernandez looked awkward as can be in right field on a liner to his left. Runners on second and third now, no outs.
3:51: Now ESPN says we might go 11 if the Braves don't win it here.
3:50: Ball four to Willie Harris.
3:49: One more look at Romulo, as he stays on to pitch the last half inning.
BOTTOM OF THE TENTH
3:47: Rajai chops one back to the mound and still makes the play close at first. If he weren't just a track star, I'd love to see him on the 25-man roster. Playing for the tie now.
