Game Thread 5/24/22: Braves vs. Phillies

Photo by Matthew Grimes/MLB Photos via Let’s see something better than last night, okay? Last night got away from the Braves in an ugly manner. Tonight should be better with Max Fried on the mound, and the new-look lineup is going to get a second chance to show what they can do. The big change is that William Contreras will be the DH while Marcell Ozuna moves to the outfield, so let’s see how that goes. Hopefully the Braves can get on the board in this series so they don’t have to spend the next two days trying to salvage a split of a four-game home series. ...

Braves News: Marcell Ozuna continues home run streak, season highs and lows, and more

Sam Navarro-USA TODAY Sports A solid night for the Braves bats. Three homers helped the Atlanta Braves outlast the Miami Marlins 5-3 on Friday night. The bats were hot from the first inning, as Ronald Acuña Jr. led off with a ringing double in his first appearance in Miami since his injury. He later scored after a single off the bat of Ozzie Albies. Marcell Ozuna collected his eighth homer of the 2022 campaign. Last night’s two-run shot was his third round-tripper in three consecutive games. Another day, another Marcell homer!#ForTheA pic.twitter.com/hjDHvuJxpv—...

The Braves pitching staff continued to stay solid as they evened the series with a 3-0 final on Tuesday night. Tucker Davidson tossed 5 innings of 3-hit ball and picked up his first major league win.

Tucker Davidson sets the tone as Braves blank Brewers, 3-0

Michael McLoone-USA TODAY Sports We’re two games deep into this series and the Braves have only given up one run. The pitching staff is feeling it here in Milwaukee. Tucker Davidson started things off for Atlanta with five scoreless innings, and his good outing set the tone for the rest of the pitching staff this evening. A two-run home run from Marcell Ozuna eventually put the Braves out of reach as they got payback for Monday’s shutout loss with a 3-0 shutout win over the Brewers tonight. There were two main stories for the Braves going into this game: Could...

Ian Anderson quiets Brewers, but Braves offense silent in another dumb loss, 1-0

Photo by Stacy Revere/ ...sigh After (another) annoying loss on Sunday and apparently a rough night at the hotel, the Braves began their road trip with a series in Milwaukee and they would certainly have liked to get off to a good start with a win in the first game. The Braves had a bit of a weird top of the first, as they had two baserunners from a .350 xBA single for Austin Riley and a Marcell Ozuna walk, but recorded outs on .760 and .680 xBA line drives from Matt Olson and Travis d’Arnaud, respectively. Ultimately, they failed to score. Ian Anderson looked decent...

The many tailspins of the Braves and Marcell Ozuna

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ The start of 2022 feels a lot like the start of 2021, with Marcell Ozuna playing an unfortunately-familiar role The extent to which the start of the Atlanta Braves’ 2022 season has mirrored the start of their 2021 season has been somewhat uncanny, and also very unpleasant. Thirty-one games in, the 2021 Braves were 15-16. Their subpar performance to date had resulted in them shedding about four wins off their preseason expectation, and about 20 percent in playoff odds. 31 games in, the 2022 Braves are 14-17. Their subpart performance to date has...
