Rain interupts an ATL beatdown; Astros lose after delay ends, 7-2


Mike Hampton never seemed to settle in, and the previously anemic Braves offense took advantage.

The rains, oh they came in, and there was a rain delay.

After the wet interlude, play resumed but the score remained the same. Damn

"Stone of Triumph" performance: Michael Bourn going 3/5 at the plate and making several sparkling defensive plays

"Stone of Shame" performance: Mike Hampton. 5 ER allowed, 2 BB, 0 K, 1 HR. Per Joe in Birmingham's suggestion, Lance Berkman shall have the stone attached firmly to his bulbous neck. A throwing error and another un-Berkman like day at the plate.

This was  posted before the game actually ended, so in the event of a "Dewey Defeats Truman" type mistake, my sincerest apologies.
