Cubs 4 Braves 2

I've got tickets for game 4 of Sox-A's, which happens to be the eve of Yom Kippur. Do me a favor and pray in what ever religion that suits you that the game is a 1:00 pm start, because that's the only way I'm going. I wish they would just announce the time already, and get it over with. How dare MLB play with people's emotions this way. And if the game is at night, does Gabe Kapler play?

Cubs-Braves Numbers

OBP - Chi .400, Atl .243
SLG - Chi .324, Atl .194
OPS - Chi .724, Atl .437
BAP - Chi .500, Atl .324
BA - Chi .294, Atl .097
SecA - Chi .267, Atl .290
BA+SecA - Chi .561, Atl .387

Secondary Average is the first loser of the playoffs. Looking at the other stats, the game wasn't as close as the score.

Bum of the Day - Leading off, Rafael Furcal goes 0-5 with 3 strikeouts.

Most Likely to be Talking About This Game When He's 80 - Kerry Wood strikes out 11 and gets as many hits as he gives up.

Best BAP Moment - Paul Bako grounds out to first with the bases loaded, scoring the first Cubs run and advancing two other baserunners.

Best Temporary Heroic Performance - Russ Ortiz loads the bases in the fourth with no outs, but strikes out the next two batters and gets Wood to foul out to keep the game scoreless.

Three playoff games down, potentially 45 to go. If I can get through the first round, I'm golden. Every game, man. Every game.
