It Ain't Over....'till its....Over

This was not just another game in the "dog days" of summer baseball.

The Atlanta Braves were hosting the defending world champion San Francisco Giants.

Down to their last out.......their last strike.....the Braves got  a walk off 2 run single and beat the Giants and their best relief pitcher.

Which is why we still love the sport of Major League Baseball.

It's not for everyone....but a game like last nights....gets the juices flowing for pennant fever.

What a game!

From the Athens Banner Herald:

Braves win on Freeman hit in ninth

ATLANTA -- Freddie Freeman capped a three-run rally against San Francisco closer Brian Wilson in the ninth with a two-run single to lift the Atlanta Braves to a 5-4 win over the Giants on Monday night.
