If not batting against Barry Zito, one of the most inconsistent pitchers in the league, wasnt enough, the Atlanta Braves just killed themselves by making 2 errors in the top of the 8th inning.
Peter Moyland with runners on second and first, no outs and Juan Uribe trying to move the runners up by bunting the ball, couldnt handle the trow to first base and Nate Schierholtz scored on the trow from second base. From there on it all went downhill fro the Braves, with another error by the new Brave Ryan Church, the Braves found themselves loosing a very winnable game.
After todays loss, the Braves now need to concentrate not loosing anymore “easy” games because if they do they will just take themselves out of playoff contention.
The most important player that needs to get in the “hot zone” is Chipper Jones. Right now there are 4 to 5 player that one could say that are in that zone but if Chipper doesnt add himself to that group, the road to the playoffs will be a very long long trip.
OHHH!!! AND BTW, GREAT PERFORMANCE BY MARK BUEHRLE WITH HIS PERFECT GAME!!!
