Baseball Update: After being up 6-1 with two outs in the bottom of the sixth, the Mets started to give up the lead to the Atlanta Braves, but hung on by the skin of their teeth via game ending play at the plate ... 6-5. Next, Tom Glavine, perhaps feeling guilty for leaving, was gone by the fourth, but not before giving up a triple to the opposing pitcher. After hitting the grand slam that won the game, Burnitz hit another home run, tying it 1-1 in the eighth in the rubber game. This saved another excellent Seo performance (seven innings, few hits, one home run), but hot/cold David Weathers again couldn't get that last out ... so it was Smoltz (futility) time. Meanwhile, the Yanks slipped some more, and Boston fans wonder as Clemens prepares to try to win #300.
