The Twinkies have lost their 18th playoff game in a row! Hard feat to accomplish. You'd figure they would've won on accident in one of those games

Braves in playoffs so far.

6-0.

58 innings pitched.
Have allowed runs in 4 of those innings...........and 54 shutout innings.

1. Won 1-0 (13 innings)
2. Won 5-0
3. Won 9-5
4. Won 2-0
5. Won 7-0
6. Won 5-1

The three starters are Fried (2nd year), Anderson (rookie), Wright (rookie).

It's truly fascinating.

Looked like the Braves dominating pitching was going to continue.....leading 7-0 headed to the 7th. Ian Anderson continuing his shutout streak.

But these Dodgers are too tough, you just knew they would break through at some point.

Braves hold on for an 8-7 win, the last out coming with the tying run 90 feet away.

had friend post this about me on FB lol112381144_3790752974275416_5547949575673282568_n.jpg
It's been over 20 years since the Braves appeared in a World Series, our world has radically changed and been fundamentally altered in so many significant ways, much of it not for the better.

BTW, I am hoping for the Astros to win the whole thing out of spite. Would do two things:

1. Somebody besides the Red Sox and their insufferable fans would have come back from an 0-3 deficit to win a series.

2. Almost all of the sanctimonious caterwauling about the Astros cheating in 2017 would be muffled. Baseball has been filled with getting an edge, more than any other major sport except maybe horse racing, since 1876, and all of a sudden everbody's all high and mighty. ***** please.

Yeah, not that it absolves the Astros' shenanigans, but baseball teams and players have been doing not so kosher stuff for as long as the sport has been around. Pine tar on bats, scuffing baseballs, pitchers and catchers with crap on their gloves and caps, and a whole litany of other things. Sign stealing has been common practice for a long time. Hell, we stole signs when I played baseball in HS. Granted using technology is a bit different than stealing signs when you're a runner on base.

The Astros winning the WS after coming back from 0-3 would just be so 2020.

Looks like WS might be Ray's vs Braves. This is going to be equivalent of a ballroom dance where there are a bunch of dudes on the dance floor. The lady who appears after quite some time is rather homely and no one wishes to dance with her.

That's.....probably not actually a lady.

7-2 Astros B8, barring a meltdown by their bullpen we will have a game 7 tomorrow night. No one outside of this fan base saw it coming and I completely love it

Go 'Stros.

And it still amazes me that Saints fans are Braves fans. ATLANTA Braves. The advent of cable TV and self proclaiming themselves "America's Team" went a long way.
