The people who say that a strikeout is just like any other out must really love this Atlanta Braves team. At one point last night I tweeted that the Braves were on pace to score 9 runs in the game but strike out 22.5 times in the contest. They did not quite score 9 runs and fell just short of those strikeouts totals. They were close to both however.
Homer Bailey will be licking his chops at the potential of striking out a high number of Braves tonight but must figure out a way to keep them in the ballpark if he wants to be successful and generate a Reds win. Meanwhile the Braves are petitioning the league to allow B.J. Upton to use a tee tonight to hit off of.
I need a win tonight to keep my chances of winning a friendly wager alive. I am sure most of you could care less about that aspect and just want the Reds to win. I’m with ya! Go Reds!
