In the Rear View

Braves 7, Marlins 4

Last night's Braves game was awesome.

Since we got there early, we took in batting practice and watched people scramble over empty seats for home run balls.

By the third inning, we'd seen a few stolen bases (Hanley Ramirez took second and third), a broken bat single which fueled a 5-run rally, a catch at the wall in center, an incredible play at the plate, and a Chipper Jones home run, on his birthday no less.

There was the run manufacturing you expect in an NL game, with plenty of high-powered offense, probably because the two starters were C. James and B. Badenhop, who (at the time of this post) have a 7.62 and 8.36 ERA, respectively.

On a different statistical note, there were just over 19,000 in attendance at Turner Field, which has a capacity of over 50,000, so there was plenty of room for everyone. Something I'm not used to living in Boston, where people camp outside and/or trade their first-born for decent seats.
