Bobby started pushing buttons early in game two, pinch-hitting Nate McLouth for Tommy Hanson in the top of the fifth inning. This followed a hard out by Rick Ankiel (it’s sad that I’m getting encouraged by hard outs at this point). McLouth responded to the opportunity by singling to right field, getting a man on for the top half of the line-up.
Infante walked to put two men on for Heyward, which might be the best opportunity the Braves have had to score this entire series. With two men on and one out, Heyward’s struggles continued, as he grounded up the middle into a very simple 6-3 double play, ending the threat. The Braves still haven’t scored through 14 playoff innings.
