Joc Pederson delivers as Braves walk-off Nationals

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports The Braves pick up a game on both the Phillies and the Mets in the NL East standings In perhaps the wackiest game of the season, Joc Pederson delivered a walk-off single in the 10th to give the Atlanta Braves a 7-6 win over the Washington Nationals. The Braves fell behind quickly as the Nationals scored in the first for the third straight game. Lane Thomas walked to lead off the game and then moved up to second on a ground out by Alcides Escobar. An infield single by Juan Soto put runners at the corners with one out. Josh Bell then jumped on...

The Daily Chop: Albies Injury Scare, Morton Magnificent in Braves loss, plus more

Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports Another tough night in Los Angeles for the Braves at least ends with a bit of positive news on the injury front. It seemed last night had the chance to be a bit better for the Braves early on when compared to their loss Monday against the Dodgers. A “how the heck did he hit that” home run from Joc Pederson and an RBI Double from Travis d’Arnaud gave the Braves a early 2-0 lead, and that seemed like it was enough support for how dominant Charlie Morton looked at times during his outing. However, in the second half of the game, the...
