Padres 8, Braves 2

Atlanta Braves vs. San Diego Padres – Box Score – August 29, 2012 So there are two horrible things you could use to frame the debacle last night. The first thing I could point out is that Tommy Hanson allowed 4 runs (3 “earned”) in 4 2/3 innings. Here is what Tommy has done in […]

Braves 2, Padres 0

Atlanta Braves vs. San Diego Padres – Box Score – August 28, 2012 Two things happened yesterday. First, Kris Medlen threw 8 scoreless innings, allowing just five singles, striking out 9 men and walking nobody in 100 pitches, while the Braves scored two runs on a Chipper Jones RBI double and a Dan Uggla solo […]

Padres 3, Braves 0

Atlanta Braves vs. San Diego Padres – Box Score – August 27, 2012 Not a lot to say about this one. The Braves mustered three hits against a guy making his major league debut. Perhaps the only surprising thing about this is that the mystery rookie who beat the crap out of us was a […]

Braves 7, Giants 1

Atlanta Braves vs. San Francisco Giants – Box Score – August 26, 2012 Fredi Gonzalez gave Dan Uggla a day off, with Martin Prado at second and Reed Johnson in left, and though Prado and Johnson went a combined 0-9, the Braves beat the tar out of the Giants. Coincidence? Jason Heyward continued to lay […]

Braves 7, Giants 3

Atlanta Braves vs. San Francisco Giants – Box Score – August 25, 2012 Today maybe wasn’t a great day to be a Giants fan. Not only did they get beaten by the Braves, but the Los Angeles Dodgers completed their second-half makeover by absorbing literally all of the Red Sox’s bad contracts, sending over a […]

Giants 5, Braves 3

Atlanta Braves vs. San Francisco Giants – Box Score – August 24, 2012 Okay, so Ben Sheets turned back into a pumpkin. Here’s a fun comparison: Pitcher A     Pitcher B     ERA BB/K   ERA BB/K Starts 1-4 1.46 23/6   0.77 21/11 Starts 5-8 5.70 10/7   9.82 10/9 Pitcher A […]

Giants 5, Braves 2

Atlanta Braves vs. San Francisco Giants – Box Score – August 23, 2012 You can blame this on Tommy Hanson if you want, but I’m blaming Freddie Freeman. Braves pitching held the Giants scoreless in seven of the nine innings of yesterday’s ballgame, with Hanson allowing a single run in the third before a nightmare […]

Braves 5, Nats 1

Atlanta Braves vs. Washington Nationals – Box Score – August 22, 2012 – ESPN. And then there’s Kris Medlen. It’s a lot to ask of a kid coming off of surgery to be the staff ace, but so far he seems up to the task. This time he only went for seven shutout innings (scoreless […]

Nationals 4, Braves 1

Atlanta Braves vs. Washington Nationals – Box Score – August 21, 2012 In 14 games against the Braves this year, the Washington Nationals are 10-4 with a 77- 52 run differential. Last night, Stephen Strasburg faced Paul Maholm, and the Nationals won 4-1, which is sort of exactly what you expect would happen when Stephen […]

Nats 5, Braves 4 (13 innings)

Atlanta Braves vs. Washington Nationals – Box Score – August 20, 2012 – ESPN. Braves pitchers combined for eleven consecutive scoreless innings — and lost. It’s kind of annoying, really. The Braves took the lead in the top of the first when Martin Prado doubled and Jason Heyward singled him home. But Tim Hudson had […]
