Brewers 7, Braves 0

Julio Teheran was… not sharp, and the Braves didn’t score any runs, but other than that, there’s been a lot to enjoy about the play at SunTrust Park lately. Despite the loss, the Braves still took the 3 game series, their 4th consecutive series win, and went 7 – 3 on the home stand. Catching […]

Braves Wagon Wheels 3 Bumbling Brewers 1

We are rollin’.. 2am this morning, storms finally passed through. 100 souls at an 18 hour all night open air fundraiser wrecked by the rain , 7 still to go -missed Friday’s game. Tired, wet, blah. Then the DJ puts this out. I never heard song/singer before. Transformed the scene, the people.. Fired up for […]

Braves 5, Brewers 4

These Braves are entertaining. For good or bad, the games are often in doubt down to the last batter. For the past couple of weeks, that’s been mostly good. Last night, the Braves defeated the Brewers, for their sixth win in the last seven games. The final was 5-4, with the Brewers leaving the tying […]

Braves 12, Giants 11

Ho hum. Another routine win. The Braves scored 12 runs on 16 hits—4 of them dingers—and they managed to eke out a one run win that went down to the wire in the 9th. Jaime Garcia had his second consecutive lousy start, giving up 6 runs (on 7 hits and 3 walks) in 4 1/3. […]

Braves 5, Giants 3

That was worth staying up for. I consumed way too much baseball last night. I watched the first four innings of the high-A affiliate being drubbed by the Yankees’ affiliate (10-1 after I left), then came home to watch these guys. Sean Newcomb has had a terrific start to his career. After a minor league […]

Giants 6, Braves 3

The Braves and Julio Teheran were rolling merrily along, until suddenly they weren’t. An 8th inning reality check brought them plummeting back to earth, and gave the Giants a lead they would not relinquish. The Braves offense squeezed out two runs in the 3rd inning to give Julio a slim lead, and he was in […]

Defenders of the Pas de Calais: Braves 9, Giants 0

The Giants’ experience last night, in a small way over a much shorter time, was quite the same as the experience of the defenders of the Pas de Calais. The Giants put out a good defense (Johnny Cueto compared to the Atlantic Wall). They defended well for the most part (a radar station raided at […]

Braves 5, Marlins 4. A Prospect Looks at Fifty.

The Braves hopes for taking the rubber game of the 3 game series were almost broken in the 8th as Jose Ramirez left a 4 – 2 lead unprotected, courtesy of a two run homer by Marcell Ozuna. However, Brandon Phillips came through in the 9th with his 2nd walk off hit in as many days, […]

Braves 8…Miami 7…There’s a Legend and There’s a Rumor.

Saturday Saturday…that’s alright…it’s America night tonight. Traditional values won out at the end of this 4 hour thriller. Not for us the flash of the Fish…we hooked them remembering  the Old Days, the Old Ways. Far from the effeminate nonsense of Miami we look to the West for our inspiration. The National League West. Where […]

Miami 5, Atlanta 0

Atlanta ran into a buzzsaw last night as Dan Straily shut down the bats, and the Reincarnation Of Ryan Howard – Justin Bour homered as Miami shut out Our Heroes 5-0. Christian Yelich added three RBIs to help lead to the final score. Sean Newcomb followed up his impressive debut with a solid, but not […]
