Is it just me or do the Braves look pretty shaky on D? I've seen some bad infield throws on fairly routine plays and their outfielders don't seem to get good jumps and reads on the ball. One of the doubles to right center looked like it could have been caught but the two fielders both seemed to let up on pursuing the ball.

Yes, their pitching and hitting are great, but in the heat of the race a few unforced errors can be the difference.

It was a very windy night...35-40 mph gusts and swirling, so I think that had an impact on a few balls in the air...the most notable to me were the one you mentioned and the pop-up to Jones in foul territory. That doesn't account for the infield throws, but I think it was a factor.

Justin Upton looked pretty shaky in left. Walker's triple could have been a single.

BJ Upton looks realy smooth in center. He goes back on a ball like its nothing.
