The Braves got their butt-kickin’ on for the second night in a row. It’s nice to beat teams that aren’t as good as you. And for the second night in a row, a Braves pitcher age 25 and younger had … Finish Reading
With their ace on the hill, the Braves lost 10-9 in extra innings, which is really not surprising if you’ve been watching the Braves in August. According to the broadcast last night, Braves starters have been averaging 5 IP and … Finish Reading
I did not watch this game, other than being fortunate to catch Dansby Swanson–yes, THE Dansby Swanson– first big league hit. The Braves lost, of course, but the real story was Dansby Swanson.
