After Brooks Conrad fouled out to start off the second, there was a semi-controversial call at first with Alex Gonzalez. After a hard hit grounder towards short, Juan Uribe fired to first and Huff may have left the base while stretching to make the pick. Alex Gonzalez definitely thought he was safe, and Bobby Cox, quickly went out to make his argument, resulting in the predictable ejection. Frustration over last night was probably the deciding factor in this confrontation.
Rick Ankiel followed up with an unexpected single, probably the hardest hit ball he’s had in three weeks, before Hanson predictably struck out to end the threat. The call at first base was probably correct, but it’s yet another crucial call looming over the Braves this series.
