Kevin Gausman gave the Atlanta Braves exactly what they needed with a dominant performance to help lead them to a 7-1 win over the Washington Nationals. The Braves got things started quickly against Nationals starter Joe Ross. Dansby Swanson worked a one out walk and then moved all the way to third as Freddie Freeman blooped a single into short left. Josh Donaldson struck out but Nick Markakis came through with a two out, two-run single to put Atlanta in front 2-0. Ross would settle down from there...

Braves comeback comes up just short in 5-3 loss to Nationals

Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports Too little, too late. Tonight was set to be a pivotal game for the Braves who won in dramatic fashion yesterday and it lived up to the hype. The Braves young ace Mike Soroka was on the mound and the Nationals steady veteran Anibal Sanchez was his opponent. Action picked up quickly for the Braves in the bottom of the first inning after Ronald Acuna singled on a groundball to short, stole second and was advanced to third on a Dansby Swanson flyout to deep center field. Freddie Freeman then wasted no time as he slapped an RBI single to right field to give the...

Braves look to Bryse for second game in Milwaukee

Photo by G Fiume/ Bryse Wilson was impressive in his last outing prior to the All-Star break, and will look to replicate that performance tonight against the Brewers. After taking the series opener on Monday, the Braves will turn to rookie Bryse Wilson as they look to clinch a series victory tonight. The offense was held quiet relative to their recent output, but scratched out four runs thanks in large part to a three-run homer from Freddie Freeman. His recent struggles have come to a screeching halt as Freeman has now hit mammoth blasts in each of the last two games, propelling the...

Soroka. Sobotka. Sunday. San Diego. Sweep! (And Freddie Freeman too! Braves win 4-1)

Sibilance and scintillance were on display as the Braves swept away the Padres. If you like pitcher’s duels, this was the game for you. If you like big, game-defining homers, this was the game for you. If you like Atlanta Braves pitchers whose surnames start with “So” and end in “a” doing well, this was the game for you. And most importantly, if you like the Braves sweeping the Padres in San Diego for the first time since 2006 (also in the first post-All-Star Break series by these two teams that year), this was definitely, indubitably, the game for you. The first seven innings of...

Braves Throwback Thursday: Bob Horner, the original Atlanta slugging phenom

41 years ago, Horner skipped minor leagues entirely The Atlanta Braves have developed a reputation in recent years of being particularly aggressive in promoting their top prospects. Among others, Ozzie Albies, Freddie Freeman, Jason Heyward, Dansby Swanson, Ronald Acuña, Austin Riley and Mike Soroka all reached the big leagues at age 22 or younger. But all of them got at least a year of minor-league seasoning before making their Atlanta debuts. Riley in particular has excelled almost immediately, bashing 16 home runs and posting a 117 OPS+ in his first 49 major-league games. The young...

2019 All-Star Game Braves Recap: Soroka shines, but the National League falls 4-3 in All-Star Game

The Braves had three All-Stars in the game this evening with Mike Soroka putting up the best performance.
