All that was missing was a Rick Camp homer

Tough to argue with that one:

Roy Halladay gave up eight runs.
The Braves bullpen allowed seven.
Durbin and Livan didn’t allow any.
Carlos Ruiz drove in 7 (two more than Albert Pujols has all year) and his team lost.
The Braves were 7-for-13 w/ RISP and almost lost.

But the future Hall of Famer wasn’t going to let that happen. Not tonight.

    That game reminded me of Game 6 of the ’99 NLCS.

  2. I can’t think of another game I was happier to be at. The Brooks Conrad grand slam game comes to mind, but this one was just special. Gonna remember this one for a long time. What a night in baseball.

    Don’t like seeing the bullpen so wobbly, but to keep coming back against the team that has owned us the last couple of years is sweet, as is roughing up Doc Halladay.

    I was studying last night and missed the whole $#%! thing! Dammit!

  5. What a game. I couldn’t watch much on TV due to other commitments but I kept checking the score and couldn’t believe what I was seeing. Unbelievable. And couldn’t have ended in better fashion.

    Office, I’ve been in 60-minute cage matches that didn’t have that much excitement in ‘em. Tip my hat to ol’ Chipper, but back in the day he would be waiting to get one thrown at his ear for that walk down to first
