LaRoche's mental breakdown and other observations
In the same game that Reyes got his hit, Reds hurler Bobby Livingston went 4-for-4. He also got a win, but the way this series went, you get the sense that all he was thinking about were his four singles (and his .625 batting average). Two days after Reyes and Livingston went a combined 5-for-5, with the Braves out of position players in the 15th inning, Atlanta right-hander Kyle Davies came up to pinch hit with the winning runs on base. Unfortunately for the Braves (and for pitchers everywhere), Davies struck out, signaling the end of the series and the end of a splendid few days at the plate for a group of players who are normally supposed to find their glory elsewhere.
