Ouch! Braves score 7 in the 8th

"I'm throwing the ball, and it's not going where I want it to go," Marte said.


This scares me.  The worst possible thing for a pitcher is trying to direct or aim pitches.  If Marte gets into that rut, I hope Andrews has a magic potion.


In what was turning out to be a good close ball game, Damaso Marte turned into a laugher.  For the second straight game, the Pittsburgh Pirates bullpen imploded allowing 7 runs in the 8th to cap off a 10-2 loss.


On the bright side, Nady was the offensive catalyst setting a nice trend early in the season.


Gorzelanny had a good, but unspectacular night.  The best news from the start was no reported pain after the game, he had some issues late last season and early this spring with his pitching arm.


Another note of notice.  Doumit got the nod behind the plate again.  Hmm, now that is interesting.
