    Braves Game 4 of season, Pirates

    1st game of 3 in the cold and damp again. Braves have flipped starters, Folty will start this game with Dickey going on Sat. hoping the weather will be warmer.


    After the Mutts series, Kemp has 6 hits, 4 DBLs, 2 HR, Markakis leads the K parade 8, Swanson and Inciarte have 4 each, Swanson is 2-14, Inciarte is 1-13, Freddie is 3-13. Team has 6 BBs compared to 31 Ks, 21 total hits, w/RISP 3-20 with 11 Ks.

    Something has to change and change quickly.

    Oh, I've slipped the surly bonds of earth,
    And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings......

    And, while with silent lifting mind I've trod
    The high untresspassed sanctity of space,
    Put out my hand and touched the face of God.

    I will miss this game. 2 afternoon games is rough for me!

    Not the best weather so hopefully they play. Otherwise a doubleheader tomorrow?

    Someone HAS to get on base ahead of Kemp. I thought our offense would actually score runs for a change... ugh. I know, I know.. only 3 games.

    1st pitch temp is 37 degrees with some kind of rain/snow/mix falling.

    Inciarte -- singles to LF

    Swanson -- FO 7 in foul ground

    Freddie --- Ks swinging at high heat

    Kemp --- FO 8 mid track

    After 3 --- 1-0 Pirates in snow storm

    Frustration raised it's ugly head to spit in Folty's face in Bot 3rd. HBP ends up scoring and several AB ending pitches were called balls helping to load the bases. This Ump has an extremely tight zone for Folty.

    A dragged out game in cold, snowy weather. Folty threw 91 pitches before leaving game after 3.2IP. Gave up 6 hits, 2 ERs, 3 BBs, 1 K, 1 HBP. Ump had a tight zone which got tighter as Folty showed more frustration.

    Braves had 10 hits and made 2 errors. Braves had DBLs from Inciaret and Markakis, Pirates had 2 HRs(Freese and Cerelli) and a DBL(Harrson) for a game total of 5 XBH

    That was an extremely tight strike zone yesterday....But as you said, Folty couldn't keep his cool and it cost him. I think he will rebound in his next start though.

    After watching Folty for all of last year and so far this year, I would suggest some hypnotic treatment to control that frustration level that gets him in so much trouble.
