In defense of Biddle, closers generally aren't that successful in 2 inning saves. He wasn't used in awhile and got called in to get a very hard save against the meat of the order. After giving up the Sheffield bloop hit for 2 RBIs, he walked Chipper, but was able to get Andruw and Fick out to end the 8th. In the 9th, as usual, the Braves got a lucky call, since Lopez had taken a brilliant curveball by Biddle that was clearly strike 3. However, probably out of fear of Bobby Cox crying yet again, the umpire called it Ball 4. With 2 out, he gave up the Furcal hit, who is 3 for 3 in his career versus Biddle, so I'd just say Furcal has his number. I'd consider that Lopez run unearned, since Lopez has no business getting first base on a strike 3 pitch down the middle. After the Furcal hit, Biddle had thrown a ton of pitches and wore down, which led to the walk of Giles. I wouldn't read much into this outing.

We've always been here tryin' to sing the truth to you
Guess you could say we've always been red white and blue
