Idle Arizona Surges to Largest Lead of Season

Walk off.

BRAVES 5, GIANTS 4

The Braves went into the ninth inning down 4-2 to the Giants last night, but Brian Wilson gave up three runs on three singles and two walks. Freddie Freeman drove in the final two runs, and now the Diamondbacks are 2.5 games ahead of the Giants.

@Saxy - do you not go to as many games now so you can stay home and collect badges? Maybe that's what is driving down MLB attendance...

Steve Sax said...

@FB: Well, there was 0.0% chance of making tonight's game at Miller Park.

But no, I'm not forgoing the chance to go to the Stadium, just for badges.

But these badges are pretty addicting.

You'd think the sky was falling by the cries and lamentations of the women - errr - giants fans around me.

I might actually watch that stupid-ass "The Franchise" show if it meant being able to see inside of the Gnats collapse.

152 badges as of last night, Sax. Didn't get to set badge traps for today's day game, though.

@FB: Got your email, thanks

Will do
