Goodness! Got out unscathed again!
 
Thread starter #384
Every day between 3:55 and 4:55, my satellite goes out. Been meaning to re azimuth. this is killing me watching the game on ESPN live....
 
Whoa, too close for comfort. All we need is 1-run. Reckon we're past ready for a walk-off win if Braves bats can get going.

Nice start with lead-off single from Markakis.
 
I was trying to listen in-between taking calls from customers, boss, and co-workers. I turned it back on just in time to hear the FreddieMVP hit. Man - what a game - a classic.
 
Fine pitching on both sides, 13 shutout innings & 16-K's for Braves, 12 shutout innings & 21-K's for Reds. 11-hits for Reds bats. Braves bats get 1-hit by Albies in the 4th, 1-hit by Acuna in the 6th, 1-hit by d'Arnaud in the 12th, and finally 3-hits by Markakis, Riley, & Freeman in the 13th to deliver 1-run for the close win. Atlanta showing potential signs Braves could turn back into a playoff team soon.

fourth time since 1960 the Braves have thrown 13-plus scoreless innings in a game
gave Atlanta its first Game 1 win in a postseason series since it won the opener of its 2001 NL Division Series
Braves, who are attempting to avoid becoming the first MLB team to lose 11 consecutive playoff series
walk-off win also gave the Braves their first postseason walk-off RBI since Game 2 of the 2004 NL Division Series
most recent postseason walk-off win by any club against the Reds was in 1975
Bauer allowed two hits and recorded 12 strikeouts over 7 2/3 scoreless innings. He became the first pitcher to produce 12 strikeouts and not allow a walk or an earned run in a postseason game.

After Bauer's gem, the Braves lineup should get a little break with Castillo going for Cincy. Hopefully we can get the bats lit up against and get 6 innings from Anderson.

Not sure if anyone noticed, but the two players most Braves fans were miffed about AA not re-signing/trading the farm for (Donaldson/Clevinger)... didn't make either of their new teams post season rosters. The Twins went 2 and out and SD lost Game 1...

Bigg he's a cocky dude, doing the chop walking off the mound, was hoping for a line drive screamer back thru the box but it never happened. A clif note would be I would sure like to have the cocky punk as my #1 or 2 starter!

Bauer is definitely one cocky dude. But so far, he manages to back it up. A little brashness in the Braves clubhouse surely couldn't hurt!
