Chicken Counting: Braves 9, Dodgers 2
Chad Billingsley had things nicely in hand for six innings, but Joe Torre left him in one inning too long, and that was the ballgame, as the normally steady Dodgers relief corps fell apart. MSTI's analysis of Ramon Troncoso's sudden fall from grace also explains much, above and beyond Joe Torre's overuse of him this year; basically, Troncoso, who was the root cause of much of this game's catastrophic nature (despite the loss being charged to Bills), has had peripheral collapses every year for the last three seasons, this one included. He's walking more, striking out fewer, and getting fewer ground balls. Not a good way to stay on the team, honestly.
