Braves INSIDE Scoop

icon_atl.gif "Last years' players strike is really gonna affect all the teams, and hopefully, it will make us an even stronger team" says Bobby Cox, on last years player strike.

The strike was due to a strange occurance of legendary players in the game. Rumor says that Kevin Costner, maker of the Field Of Dreams, has to do with this.

"its yet another brand new season, a new year... and we, are ready" Andrew jones comments..

The player strike let the Braves get another attempt at the 14th straight year.

We, will see.

Kolb came in the 9th and sealed it off with a 1-2-3 ninth.

Kolb Doing The Usual


Above: Conine hitting the game winner Below: Kolb blowing the save

It seems that Dan Kolb has done what he has been doing all of last year before the strike. The Braves were winning all the way until the 9th inning, until Kolb came in. He gave up 3 hits, and with a runner on first, gave up the winning homerun.

Hitting Noteables

A. Jones: 2-4, 2HR, 3RBI

J.Conine: 1-1, Game-Winning HR, 2RBI

Pitching Noteables

Smoltz: 5.0IP, 2H, 1R, 1ER, 4SO, 1HR, ND

Kolb: 0.1IP, 3H, 3R, 3ER, 1HR, BS, L

Willis: 5.2IP, 6H, 4R, 4ER, 2BB, 2SO, 2HR, ND

T.Jones: 2.0IP, 2H, 1R, 1ER, 1HR, W

This game was meant to be pitched by Josh Beckett, but a small blister has kept him off the field for 1 day, he will be pitching tommorow

Tommorows Matchup: Mike Hampton (0-0) Vs. Josh Beckett (0-0)
