The bullpen.

Roberto Hernandez sweated out six innings of two run ball and the bats put together some magic to the tune of a 5-run eighth inning that was capped by Dom Brown's first homer in months. But the lasting image from Monday's 9-6 loss to the Atlanta Braves at Citizens Bank Park will be that of fans and players quickly turning their heads to watch home runs land in the seats.

B.J. Rosenberg gave up back-to-back-to-back jacks in the eighth that seemingly put the game out of reach for the Fightins, but after that awesome bottom half of the inning, Jake Diekman found himself in a save situation. That didn't go so well either. Now Jake wasn't helped by his defense when a ball to Utley up the middle resulted in ZERO outs. But the pitch to Dan Uggla that ended in a grand slam was all on the Diek man.

Not a fun way to end what was a rather fun game.
