Anyone else hear that fan scream, “You fucking piece of shit” at Bruce Hooper last night?
The home plate umpire immediately ejected the guy, as he probably should have. And had I been sitting nearby with my son, I would not have enjoyed the outburst. But watching at home, I admit I thought it was kinda funny. I was surprised to see the lout was a clean-cut, sober-looking young fellow.
In any case, that was about the most interesting moment at Turner Field, at least for Braves fans. Tonight, sadly, promises to be little better, unless Wood throws a no-hitter. Hell, the Braves might still lose. As superb as he’s been, that’s a bit much to wish for.
Trying to scratch out a run or two tonight: Gosselin 4, Simmons 6, Freeman 3, JUpton 7, Heyward 9, Bethancourt 2, Johnson 5, BUpton8, Wood 1.
