Braves Electrify Fans With Walk Off Loss
SAN DIEGO (Sportsman’s Daily Wire Service) The Atlanta Braves exploded for four runs in the top of the ninth inning on Monday night, but it still wasn’t enough as they lost to the San Diego Padres, 7-6.
The Braves displayed a weak offensive output throughout the contest, until the late surge.
“We really sustained a level of ineptitude that kept our opponents in complete control,” said Braves manager, Fredi Gonzalez. “I’m glad we were able to give our fans a nice walk off loss.”
“I love being a fan of this team,” said Parker Vogel of Athens, Georgia. “We’ve come to expect are fair amount of winning over the years. So one of these walk off losses is sweet.”
“I was a little worried we might rally when we were down by only five runs going into the ninth,” said Don Hagen of Charleston, South Carolina. “But then we ran out of gas and were assured the walk off loss. Nothing quite like that deep depression that envelopes the whole family. I mean, why build the hopes of young children, when you can dash them with half the effort.”
