Braves comeback falls short in 6-5 loss.

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...

Atlanta Braves Can’t Answer Phillies, Lose on Another Walk-Off

The Atlanta Braves struggled defensively all day, allowing wild pitches, passed balls and infield singles. This has been a frustrating series to watch. After losing the 1st two games, the Atlanta Braves looked to split the series. However, wild pitches by R.A. Dickey and passed balls by Kurt Suzuki really hurt the Braves in the game.

Braves vs Phillies final score: Julio Teheran struggles again

Braves vs Phillies final score: Julio Teheran struggles again

Another rough outing for Julio Teheran as the Braves drop their series opener in Philadelphia. Julio Teheran couldn’t escape the fifth inning as he was victimized by the long ball and some shaky defense behind him in a 10-3 Atlanta Braves’ loss to the Philadelphia Phillies. The Phillies got off to a quick start in the first against Teheran as Freddy Galvis singled, stole second and third and then scored after Kurt Suzuki’s throw sailed into left field. Teheran settled down and worked scoreless innings in the second, third and fourth but things got ugly in a hurry in the fifth....

Kurt Suzuki’s remarkable season

Kurt Suzuki’s remarkable season

The mystical rejuvenation powers of hitting a bunch of fly balls, through the lens of a backup catcher. Words are strange. Case in point: “remarkable.” Just looking at the word in and of itself, you get, “can be remarked upon.” But, if you go to a dictionary definition, you get something somewhat different: 1. notably or conspicuously unusual, extraordinary; 2. worthy of notice or attention. Beyond that, its synonyms are rife with value judgments: notable, noteworthy, striking, extraordinary, wonderful, unusual, singular, uncommon. But, I still come back to the word itself —...

Atlanta Braves news and links: Acuna for Gray? Probably no way.

Today we’re talking about the A’s having wishful thinking, Folty coming into his own, and a big win in the desert. BRAVES NEWS Suzuki smacks two dingers as Atlanta drops Arizona The Braves bounced back from an ugly loss on Monday night by handing the Diamondbacks an ugly loss of their own. Atlanta won 8-3 last night, and the biggest contributor was Kurt Suzuki. He continued the trend of Braves catchers being on a relative tear when compared to other catchers across baseball, as he hit two dingers that helped power the Braves to a win in the desert. We began the 7th inning tied up at...

Suzuki Goes Yard Twice, Folty Cruises as Braves Pummel Diamondbacks

There was an offensive explosion in the desert for Atlanta on Tuesday. The Atlanta Braves avoided their first four-game losing streak since early May with an 8-3 thrashing of the Arizona Diamondbacks at Chase Field on Tuesday. Kurt Suzuki seemed to enjoy his night in the desert as he hit his ninth and 10th home runs of the season in back-to-back fashion during a 2-for-4 outing. Matt Kemp and Johan Camargo joined in on the fun as well Tuesday, each delivering solo home runs. Mike Foltynewicz continued to distance himself from the uncertainty that lingered around him in 2016 with yet...

Kurt Suzuki Trade Rumors Swirling

The Braves traded Jaime Garcia, it makes sense that a Kurt Suzuki trade will happen before the July 31 deadline. Suzuki, like Garcia, will be a free agent after this season. Braves GM John Coppolella likes to squeeze value rather than having players contracts expire on his dime. MLB.com is reporting that the Rangers have interest in Kurt Suzuki. The Colorado Rockies also reportedly have interest. I have serious doubts that the Braves would trade Suzuki to the Rockies. If Suzuki was traded to Colorado, that would send a negative message to Braves players and fans. The Rockies are potentially...
