Tom Glavine gave up one run through six. You knew Willie would pull him after the lead runner got on in the seventh. That’s the way he’s always done things and he wasn’t going to change tonight.
Including tonight, Glavine has a combined five losses and/or no-decisions when the offense gave him two or fewer runs. That’s been key.
And, ahem, well, there’s the bullpen, that has been frequently pointed out this season, and especially in the days leading up to the trade deadline, is in need of help.
Hell of a catch by Lastings Milledge just now to keep the game alive.
