The Daily Chop: Braves get crushed 15-1, Wilson set to start G4, MLBPA Awards, and more

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports The Braves got embarrassed but luckily it’s only one game. Game three was an absolute nightmare. Two pitches in, the Braves were trailing. Nine batters in, Kyle Wright was being removed from the game after allowing six runs and recording just two outs. Grant Dayton only added fuel to the fire, allowing five more runs to cross as the Dodgers set a playoff record. The lone highlight for the Braves was a solo homer from Cristian Pache. Otherwise, this one was a snooze within 20 minutes of first pitch. Braves News Kyle Wright can’t escape the 1st as Braves...

Kyle Wright can’t escape the 1st as Braves suffer blow out loss in Game 3

Photo by Tom Pennington/ Things got out of hand early. The Atlanta Braves entered Game 3 of the NLCS with a 2-0 lead and they would exit the game leading 2-1. As bad as Wednesday’s game went for Atlanta, they remain in a good position in the series. The worst case scenario coming into the game would be a short outing by Kyle Wright. It took the Dodgers exactly two pitches and one overturned call at first base to take a 1-0 lead. Wright would retire the next two batters on ground outs but would be unable to record that final out. By the time the dust cleared, five straight batters had...
