Finally, the Braves win and the Phillies lose. The Braves pulled it out in dramatic fashion with an extra innings win and moved back into a tie with the Phillies.
Alex Gonzalez hammered a three-run shot several rows back into the left field bleachers off St. Louis pitcher Mitchell Boggs to give the Braves a 6-3 victory.
It was the Braves MLB leading 24th win in their last AB. This team has resiliency and they seem to explode just when you think they’re down and out.
“That’s a great win,” Gonzalez said. “You never give up, especially with this kind of team. It was a great feeling after that. I tried to get a fly ball deep. I think I got it deep enough.” (quote from this article)
It would be great if the Braves could take the series tomorrow. These kinds of wins can incite a nice win streak. Let’s hope that it does. The Braves really need it right now.
