A Weekend of Baseball

The Braves are sitting pretty in 1st place heading into the All-Star break after taking 2 of 3 against the rival Mets at Citi Field. Each game was on a national broadcast (Fri - MLB Network, Sat - FOX, Sun - TBS), but all were blacked out here in upstate, NY and picked up by local SNY/CW broadcasts.

I took the 2.5hr trip down the NYS Thruway for Saturday's match-up. Tim Hudson lived up to his All-Star status with a dominant 7 IP, 0 ER, 4 H, 3 K, 2 BB performance. The Braves finally cashed in on Mike Pelfrey's ineffectiveness with 4 runs in the 5th inning, including a Tim Hudson RBI double. The lefty bullpen tandem of Jonny Venters and Billy Wagner closed out the 8th and 9th to preserve a 4-0 shutout for Atlanta.

Here's a few shots of the game for your viewing pleasure...
