Braves 4, Rockies 3

The Braves gave up the same number of runs on Tuesday as they did on Monday, but this time the offense was able to squeak out a few of their own and emerge on top. Newcomb limited the Rockies to three runs over six innings at Coors Field, an accomplishment a pitcher would take any […]

Corregidor: Braves 0, Rockies 3

Corregidor. This is a rock mountain in the channel leading from the South China Sea into Manila Bay. After the Magellan exploration, the Spanish returned to colonize the Philippines. They built the first fortresses on the rocky island. Even by 16th century cannon, that made it hard for a wooden ship to enter Manila Bay. […]

Braves 6, Cardinals 3

R.A. Dickey gave the Braves a much needed boost, allowing only 1 run in 7 innings, and Brandon Phillips had 2 hits, including a 2 run homer in the 5th to provide a 4 – 0 lead, helping the Braves to salvage 1 of 3 games from the Cardinals and break a 5 game losing streak. […]

The Same River, Twice, Again……………Braves 5 Cardinals 6

La Vie en Rose. Life through rose colored glasses. That’s what we need. How we need it.   You could pretty much predict it. The details might vary to some extent but not much, really. We score a couple in the first but give them back right away. They added 3 in the 4th, one […]

St. Louis 8, Atlanta 5

Pitiful. Mike Foltynewicz could only go 2 2/3 innings against a streaking Cardinals team, giving up 6 runs on 4 walks and 7 hits. Meanwhile the Braves couldn’t take advantage of Adam Wainwright turning into a pumpkin, only managing to score 1 run off him in 5 innings despite the fact that he was throwing […]

First Impressions of SunTrust Park (by Sam Hutcheson)

Since it’s timely, I visited the park for the first time last night. Richard B, of the old Baseball Primer hordes, was in town for work and we decided to catch a game (he wanted to check off a new park on his travels, etc.) We met for drinks in my neighby around 4:00pm to […]

A Phils/Barves Game As You Might Expect

11-2. That’s not the record the Dodgers have against the Phillies. That’s the record the Phillies have against us. They’re 31-67 against everyone else, but they’ve beat us like a drum all season. They’ve walked off on us three times, and they’ve beaten us by one run six times. But interestingly, one of our two […]

Phillies 5, Braves 2

There are few things in life more depressing than having to recap yet another loss against the imposing Phillies, especially when it makes the 5th straight defeat against them. In a year that has seen the Braves make quite a few strides forward, their play against the Phillies has been nothing short of humiliatingly abysmal. […]

Marlins 4, Braves 1

“Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.” – Winston Churchill Are we turning a page in the rebuild? In quick succession, Lucas Sims, Ozzie Albies, and Max Fried have joined Mike Foltynewicz, Sean Newcomb, and a shortstop to […]

Saturday, Saturday…No Aggravation…Braves 7, Fish 2

  Yeah, Folty, Elton, Saturday, WIN! Sweet. Let that tape rip, celebrate with me. Central Park 1980.   THE GAME. 11 strike outs, no walks…up against an excellent pitcher, Straily, who had already beaten us twice this year and showed us why tonight again for 5 innings. Folty coming off a poor performance in Philly […]
