Robles initiates a beautiful 8-3 DP in the fifth.

Down 2-1 though.

I got off a call, went to Baseball-Reference to check the game time, and ...

Did Abrams get a double or did they call that an error?

What the hell?  There must be a late afternoon ribbon cutting for the new Gravy Barn in the Croker Concourse.

Traffic is the usual excuse for Atlanta start times.

Putting the stadium out in the middle of exurban sprawl seems to be the right solution to traffic woes  :clown:

I have to wonder if there's been a guy whose 1st call up was after turning 30 and after 8/1 who has hit 10 HRs.
