Padres fall to Braves 6-1. Noisemaker effects in full effect.

It wasn't necessarily a bad game except for the losing part and the generally not being able to score runs part. Tommy Hanson is a good pitcher and there was just a brief lapse of not being able to keep it together.

My in-laws were fully decked in Atlanta Braves gear to root Brooks, but they probably didn't have to cheer quite as loud as they did when Troy Glaus absolutely crushed the ball somewhere into the jumbotron to put the game out of reach. 

One disheartening thing was that the scoreboard I had been ignoring during the home opener came into full effect telling me to Make Some Noise and Stomp My Feet and Roar While Clapping. I readily admit that the crowd buys into it and responds, but it's distracting for those of us who are bored with the game and are playing with our fingernails to suddenly hear cheering only to realize that the Scoreboard has decided to order its minions into a frenzy to watch Everth Cabrera foul off a 2-0 pitch.

There are enough people who find baseball boring to not have to highlight minimally entertaining bits of the game. That's just proving the opposing case.
