Suzuki and the Braves slug their way to 7-4 win over Nats

Atlanta’s bats came to life after a dormant period on Thursday, and Kurt Suzuki’s bat showed the most life as the Braves picked up the win on Friday night. Kurt Suzuki had a big night at the plate, as his third home run of the year and a double as well helped power the Braves to a 7-4 win over the division-leading Washington Nationals. The Braves were the first to score in this one, as Johan Camargo led off the second inning with a singe. After Jace Peterson lined out, Dansby Swanson came to bat and proceeded to smash the first pitch he saw into the left field seats for a two-run...

Braves complete two-game “sweep” of Mets with 7-5 victory

Have a day, Kurt Suzuki. This week’s series between the New York Mets and the Atlanta Braves was supposed to include three games but that did not happen as a result of an early rain-out. With that on the table, the Braves emerged with two victories in as many contests and the second win served as the clincher for the “sweep” over New York by a final score of 7-5 on Thursday afternoon. The fireworks of the day began with back-to-back walks to Nick Markakis and Kurt Suzuki in the second innings and, with two men on, Jace Peterson (in the lineup in place of an injured Brandon Phillips)...

Braves DFA Chase d’Arnaud, call up Lane Adams

Braves DFA Chase d’Arnaud, call up Lane Adams

Given some close and late situations where the ability to put the ball in play was required and the bench has failed to do so in...
