So, the Braves are 1-1 in this series after having faced Arizona’s top two starters. If you had told me Wednesday night that would happen I would’ve taken it in a heartbeat and run. So, not DOOOooomed?
Ender Inciarte was tossed in the 4th for arguing balls and strikes, as the umpire’s strike zone so confused him he thought it was possible a ball in the dirt would be called a strike. Adam Dyvall came on to replace him and would, of course, strike out in a critical spot in the 8th.
Speaking of the 8th, Ronald Acuna Jr led off with a single and then stole second. Camargo doubled him home. After Freddie Freeman grounded out to the pitcher, Nick Markakis and Tyler Flowers reached on consecutive infield singles, and the Braves showed us how you can have a man on second with one out, and after two consecutive hits, get to a bases loaded one out situation. Ozzie Albies ‘drove in’ Camargo by making contact and putting pressure on the defense as everyone was safe, but Duvall, needing only a sac fly, struck out.
Kyle Wright surrendered the final run in the 8th, when working his second inning, he loaded the bases with no outs. Luke Jackson came in and surrendered only one run – on a sac fly (take note Adam).
