Recapping The Recaps: Braves At Phillies, Game One

There really wasn't too much to say after last night's loss to one of the best pitchers in baseball.

Bobby Cox does the only thing he can, praise Roy Halladay:

“Doc was on top of his game tonight. It’s just a great performance. You figure you’ve almost got to throw a shutout to beat him. He’s that good. He has been for years. When he gives up runs they’re little ground-ball base hits and things like that. He never walks anybody. I think he went ball 3 three times tonight. He just doesn’t do it….It’s no shame only getting one run off a guy like that, when he’s like that.”

Talking Chop explains the Braves' last gasp:

The game only lasted 2 hours and 14 minutes. Doc had his nastiest stuff going all night, striking out seven and walking just one. The Braves had a chance against Roy in the eighth after Gregor Blanco lead off with a bunt single, but he was caught stealing on a missed hit-and-run by Brooks Conrad. Blanco looked safe on the replay, but the call was made and the Braves never got another runner on base.

And Derek Lowe just got beat:

"Sometimes you just get beat," Lowe said. "The guy pitched a tremendous game. We can talk all day about what-ifs. He beat us, and that's really the end of the story."

The Braves need to go out there and forget all about that tonight.
