As you can see, the Braves and Nationals played a game of baseball and combined to score 31 runs on 37 hits. Oddities ... Of the 8 1/2 innings played, 4 1/2 were scoreless. Eight Braves have multi-hit games, and somehow no one on either side managed a home run.
Spring training, as you can imagine, typically makes a hash of scorecards, but now fathom the Braves' half of the fifth via the following tweet, which was dispatched with scarcely concealed exasperation ...
This is one half-inning. Gross. pic.twitter.com/UejDKvtAWz— Dan Kolko (@masnKolko) March 1, 2014
That fifth inning took longer than three Mark Buehrle complete games (note: possibly not true.)
In any event, Rare is the team who gives up 25 hits and commits five errors yet still wins. Expectations, you see, are still in preseason form.
