Braves Win!

Walk off homer by Rafael Furcal in the bottom of the 11th evens the series at 1-1! Right on. It looked a little grim early on, with the possibility of going back to Houston 0-2 but now it is tied. I’m hoping this exciting win lights a fire under my boys, who have a tendency to be listless in the post-season. The celebration at the plate looked more like what you see at the end of a series, not in game 2. Anything that gets their blood pumping and playing like it matters to them is good with me.

    The only downside of Rafie homering is that makes Rafie want to homer more. Which is a bad thing. He is much better at slapping the ball and running the bases and it is what the Braves need him to do. That being said, umm.., WOOHOO!! Go Rafie!

    That’s what we call the “Andruw Dilemma.” You are right, he could have done what needed to be done with a deep single, but he wanted to be the hero. I’m just hoping that this sparks something in the team, something other than a lot of Furcal wild swings.
