Game 14: Loss

Braves 2 Mets 1

Poor Tom Glavine. If I were him, and saw the lineup posted before the game, and saw that Tim Hudson was on the hill for the Braves, I might have turned around and went home.

To his credit, Glavine threw an outstanding game. Unfortunately, you can’t beat the Braves with Jose Valentin and Endy Chavez starting in your outfield … unless you throw a no-hitter. He almost did, but Hudson was just a bit better.

So there it goes … another series won by the Braves. The Mets haven’t won a series vs. Atlanta since like 1997 or something crazy like that. Oh well, they can try again next month.
