Haha. Not often you can overcome 2 errors leading to runs in the postseason. We will take it though. I thought Keuchel was taken out too early. He put some guys on base but didn't seem like he was laboring too much. Maybe the heat played a factor.I was taking the announcer approach when they say he hasn’t allowed a hit all game!!
Only thing I'm worried about tomorrow is the heat. It might put Flaherty off his game, or at minimum shorten his outing an inning or two.If nothing else, at least Carlos makes things fun to watch in the 9th.
I figured if they could steal this game today, then they'd have a chance in this series with Flaherty going tomorrow.
This isn't anything new for Acuna. He got pulled after his first at-bat in a game earlier this year for a similar situation to what happened today.Freddie Freeman not happy with the lack of hustle by Acuna. Said that’s something you talk about once and that talk has already happened. Also said it was like beating a dead horse talking about it.
They pulled Keuchel because he was going through the line-up for the 3rd time and wasn't exactly mowing guys down. No starter should face the same guy 3 times in the playoffs unless they're throwing like Buehler last night, even then they probably shouldn't if the game is close.You think that's why the Braves pulled Keuchel as early as they did?
