    Default March 12 Braves game

    Every other game in the Grapefruit League was canceled today and this one probably should have been as well. From what I gather the field is a complete disaster.

    Here's what has happened thus far:

    Jurrjens pitching for the Braves
    Cutch strikes out
    Cedeno crushes one to the wall in center, but flies out.
    Jones grounds to first

    Ohlendorf pitching for the Pirates
    Prado singles, grounder to left field
    McLouth bunts back to Ohlendorf, Ohlendorf slips on the wet field and McLouth is safe at first, runner goes to third on an error
    Chipper Jones grounds to first base, Crosby fires home and Prado is out in a run down.
    Ohlendorf picks off McLouth who took off for third early
    Troy Glaus walks
    Brian McCann flies to center to end the inning.

    Rain starts coming down
    Doumit line drive single into right
    Church flies to left
    Crosby hit and run ground out, Doumit to second. At one point Crosby hit a foul and fell on the wet ground. No idea why they're still trying this game.
    Walker flies to left

    Ohlendorf comes out and warms up.
    Yunel Escobar hits a comebacker off of Ohlendorf's leg, but he picks it up and throws him out.

    The umpires call for the tarp. The announcers seem to think they might try to keep going if the rain stops.

    Just announced they'll be resuming shortly.

    There's free audio for this game, you just need a regular free MLB.com account:

    Surprised that they would actually resume after that long of a delay

    Brian Bass to the mound and it starts raining harder. Awesome.

    Jason Heyward is the hitter. 3-2 count and Heyward grounds to Crosby at first. Crosby slips a little, but makes the flip over to Bass for the out.
    Matt Diaz another full count and he strikes out swinging.

    That's 3 outs, I forgot that Ohlendorf already got the first out of the inning.

    Probably should have noted that today there weren't DHs in the lineups. The Pirates and Braves both had pitchers in the 9 spots, but neither starter actually got to hit. It'll either be relievers or lots of pinch hitters.

    Tommy Hanson was supposed to pitch the 3rd inning, had warmed up earlier, but apparently got shut down. Jo-Jo Reyes comes out to pitch instead.

    Ramon Vazquez up to bat. This is only his 7th AB of the spring. A few pitches fouled away, then he takes a called third strike.
    Brian Bass will hit. He knocks one through the middle for a single. Wehner wonders if it might be his first AB as a pro, but he has 7 for his career and 1 hit.
    McCutchen up to bat. Base hit into right field.
    Cedeno now. 2-2 pitch is popped foul, and Troy Glaus drops it. A bunch of foul balls this AB. Cedeno hits one hard. Would probably have scored two if it weren't Bass on second base, but he'll take the 1 RBI double.
    2nd and 3rd for Jones. Pops to shallow right and Yunel Escobar makes the play.
    Doumit hitting from the right side against the lefty. Count goes full and he takes a called third strike on the outside corner.

    Jo-Jo Reyes up to bat. Bass walks him on 4 pitches. Oops.
    Martin Prado takes two more balls, then gets hit in the stomach with a pitch. Bass blames it on the mound and out comes the grounds crew.
    2 men on for Nate McLouth. He's actually in the strike zone, so maybe it was the mound's fault. Nate strikes out on 3 pitches without swinging the bat.
    Chipper grounds to second, Vazquez to Cedeno to Crosby 4-6-3 double play.

    Ump talks to John Russell, throws Reyes a baseball to warm up, then waves everyone off the field. The Umpire heads to the Braves dugout, then the Pirates dugout, and they still haven't officially called the game.

    This is officially considered another delay. At some point you have to just cancel it, right? The Pirates apparently waited until the last minute to make the 2 hour drive since every other game was canceled today, but the Braves were set on going forward for some reason.

    Guess there wasnt much to take from this one. got called and even when it was in play it sounded like the conditions were so poor that you couldn't get squat from any performances
