The Baseball Desert

Here's a stat to ponder. I don't know what it means - if it means anything at all - but it's intriguing all the same: today, the Atlanta Braves had their third consecutive game against the Expos in which they had 17 hits or more, and yet they're 1-2 for the series. Maybe they should forego the traditional batting practice time before tomorrow's game and work on how to stop the opposing team scoring runs... All credit to the Expos, though, for not giving up on the games and coming back to win against the NL's hottest team.
