The Braves tried the old score early, score often trick, and discovered it works quite well.
They put two runs up in the 1st inning, one in the 4th and two more in the 5th. One more in the 7th and three in the 9th sealed the deal. The Blue Jays came back to tie it in the 6th, but the Braves rejected the notion of hibernation mode, and continued in their scoring ways. By taking the lead back with their run in the 7th. The continuation of piling on runs proved beneficial, when the Blue Jays tried to chip away. In the end, though, the Braves offense overcame.
Several Braves are going to be sad to leave Canada. Dansby Swanson has as many multi-hit games there as he does in the U.S. (fingers crossed that’s a sign his bat is waking up), and Matt Kemp capped his Canadian venture off with a 4 RBI night. Freddie Freeman is just a hittin’ fool. He’s now the NL home run leader, and his OPS is up to 1.211. He’s ridiculous.
Two more against these guys at home. Let’s hope the Braves’ bats didn’t get lost going through customs.
