With the Sox on an off-day, it didn't take me long to figure out what to watch. Mets-Braves from Atlanta with a classic pitching matchup: Glavine vs. Smoltz.

The game has certainly lived up to the billing of having two future Hall of Famers starting. The Braves got a run in the first on a Jeff Francouer sac fly and another on a Matt Diaz homer in the second and that's been it until the 9th. Glavine went 6 innings and Glavine went 7 for his 200th victory (to go along with 154 saves).

Bob Wickman had a bit of a heart attack save in the 9th, as Kelly Johnson made an error that led to a run in the Braves 2-1 win.

Games like this are why I buy the Extra Innings package.

By the way, does anyone else find it amusing that the Braves have a player named (Pete) Orr, and he wears number 4?

I went to the game, and it was a good game, if you're a Braves fan (which as you know, I'm not).

It was on TBS last night as well.

Extra Innings? Bah! :-)
