Atlanta 5, Colorado 2

Julio Teheran finally showed up at SunTrust Park, and pitched the Braves to a 5-2 win over Colorado. Jome Julio had lost 9 straight home park decisions, a streak that was one longer than Shelby Miller‘s 2015 and Craig McMurtry‘s 1984 streaks. And that is territory no one wants to be in. Trust me, I saw most of McMurtry’s ’84 season. Ugh.

Teheran threw 7 1/3 innings, giving up only 2 runs on 5 hits, including a 3rd inning RBI single to Charlie Blackmon and a 7th inning home run to Mark Reynolds. He was supported by Matt Kemp‘s two run dinger in the bottom of the first and Kurt Suzuki‘s lead off homer in the second. Ender Inciarte added a RBI grounder and Brandon Phillips a RBI single in the second, and from there Teheran cruised.

Ozzie Albies had two hits and Dansby Swanson walked twice to continue their resurgences at the plate.

Sam Freeman and Arodys Vizcaino closed out the last inning and 2/3 for the pen. Sean Newcomb goes tonight for Atlanta against Kyle Freeland.

Natspos delenda est.

  1. a journo who’s going by Bradley
    his forecasting powers are off madly
    Acuna fortunum
    e pluribus unum
    we’d not say for Bradley, sadly.

  2. Ozzie Albies
    some of us now should genuflect at the knees
    for a moment we had weakly wavered
    then came a mighty power explosion, to be savored.

  3. Hello from the park again. One thing that amazes me is how little the majority of people around me seem to follow the game pitch by pitch. Nachos seem to have a higher priority for many people. Hm.

  4. Seen on Twitter: “The Mets season fell apart in the winter when nobody signed Kelly Johnson, so they couldn’t trade for him at the first sign of trouble.”

    Of course, the Braves are the flip side of the coin on this, too.

  5. @7 You really couldn’t have picked a much better weekend to take in a series with great weather and two exciting games so far. I had tix for Friday’s game but a sudden minor surgical procedure put a hold on much of my weekend plans. Still mulling whether or not to attempt tomorrow’s game.
