Braves 8, Reds 1

Nothing 8 runs won’t cure. The Reds Luis Castillo struck out 8 in his 4 innings, but his inability to go deeper was costly, as Tyler Flowers broke open a 2 – 0 game in the 5th with a grand slam off of Drew Storen. Brandon Phillips and Freddie Freeman added 3 hits apiece, and […]

Braves return home to take on Reds

The Braves are back in Cobb County, and Brandon Phillips will get a chance to show the Reds this new trick he learned. The Braves are finally back home at SunTrust Park tonight after a grueling road trip that saw them face a hot Cardinals team and a house of horrors at Coors Field. Atlanta will now get to face off against the NL Central cellar dwellers but as the Cubs learned this week, the Reds are not a team that should be taken lightly — especially since the Braves have shown that they have no room to take last-place teams lightly. One of the reasons why the Reds still command respect...

Braves comeback falls short in 6-5 loss.

The Braves made it interesting but just couldn’t finish the job. The Braves had runners on second and third in the bottom of the ninth with two outs but couldn’t scratch across the game-tying run. Lucas Sims struggled through 5 innings giving up 5 runs (4 earned) but managed the game enough to give the Braves a chance. The Braves got started quickly getting singles from Brandon Phillips and Freddie Freeman to get runners on first and second. Nick Markakis drew a walk to load the bases and then Kurt Suzuki continued his career year smoking a single to left to score two. The Braves would...
