7th inning stretch time...

We can definitely still win this, no doubt. Hill has been superb, and is clearly still not at 100%, which means this performance gives us even greater cause for optimism. With the meat of the order coming up, taking a lead into the 8th would give Hill a great chance to pick up the W, and let Rauch and the bullpen see it out.

That was close!

Look for us to score somehow anyways.

The way this is going, at least we will probably have the top of the order in the 9th to win it.

Yunel Escobar is a really good defensive shortstop.

This blows. We had a golden opportunity to take the lead in this inning with 4-5-6 up.

Time for Kearns to earn his money perhaps?

Mackowiak will hit a game-winning jack in the 8th :lol:

Jurrjens still pitching well and at 94 mph after 80 pitches.

If Kearns walks, bring in Nieves.

Woeful.  Jurrjens can go another inning, too.

That kind of inning from your 'power' hitters is an absolute joke.

Man I hate playing Atlanta. All of their starters own us (Hudson, Smoltz, Glavine, Jurrjens).

If Hill can get through this inning, we are looking at the hot bat of Mackowiak and fat boy, then a pitcher...

How do we continue to let the bottom of the order beat us?

of course.  Our pitchers always get beat by the bottom of the order.

If Hill can get through this inning, we are looking at Mackowiak, Estrada and Willie Harris.

You can't let this bum Blanco beat you again.
