Atlanta Braves news and links: Six hours for nine innings

The Braves had an extremely long night at the office, but it eventually ended in victory so it’s all good. BRAVES NEWS After six long hour, Adams helps Atlanta walk-off The Braves and Pirates played 9 innings of baseball, but it took them from 7:30 PM ET until nearly 2:00 AM ET to play those nine innings. That’s because a storm rolled through after the sixth inning and delayed the game by three-and-a-half hours. Once the game finally continued, the two teams traded the lead until the bottom of the ninth, which is when Nick Markakis tied it with a double and then Matt Adams won it. If...

Six hours later, Braves walk off 6-5 against Pirates

The Braves played one of the wildest games in recent memory tonight as they walked off the Pirates 6-5. The winning run did not cross the plate until just before 2 a.m., but Matt Adams delivered and the three hour delay was worth the wait. In a game that took over six hours to complete thanks to a three hour rain delay, the Braves came through in walk-off fashion, beating the Pirates 6-5 as the clock struck 2 AM. Matt Adams continued his torrid start as a Brave on Tuesday (and Wednesday morning) with another homer and a walk-off singe that plated Nick Markakis to give Atlanta the victory....

Braves rally falls just short in 3-2 loss to Nationals

Braves fought to the end. The Atlanta Braves rallied in the eighth but fell just short of a series sweep in a 3-2 loss to the Washington Nationals. The Nationals jumped out to an early lead when Daniel Murphy jumped on an inside fastball from Jaime Garcia and drove it into the right field stands for a solo homer. Washington struck again in the third but not without some help from some shaky Atlanta defense. Trea Turner led off the third with a deep fly ball to right field that caromed off the glove of Nick Markakis for a rare two-base error. William Difo followed with a come backer to...

MLB Draft 2017: Orioles system outfield depth review

MLB Draft 2017: Orioles system outfield depth review

The Orioles haven’t developed their own outfielder since they drafted Nick Markakis. Maybe one of this current crop will be able to break through. The last time the Orioles drafted and developed an outfielder who had more than one successful big league season, the outfielder was Nick Markakis, who was drafted in 2003, debuted in 2006, and had his best season in 2008. That was fourteen years ago now and at the big league level for the Orioles this year, the rotation of players has included two first basemen/designated hitters, a former Rule 5 pick who doesn’t hit or field very well, and...

Coherent offense leads Braves to 10-6 win over Blue Jays

Coherent offense leads Braves to 10-6 win over Blue Jays

That will work. The Atlanta Braves entered Monday’s game in Toronto as Vegas underdogs and it was easy to see why. However, the team played quite well for nine innings and the end result was a rare, 10-4?? victory that felt comfortable for long stretches of time. In a continuation of positive recent trends, the Braves struck first and the initial blow came in the opening frame. Matt Kemp singled to send Freddie Freeman from first to third and, after a ghastly throw, Kemp was able to advance to second. On cue, Nick Markakis contributed some timely hitting with a two-run single to center...

Pinch-hit homer dooms Braves to 3-1 loss in Miami finale

Pinch-hit homer dooms Braves to 3-1 loss in Miami finale

The Braves got stung on a three-run homer by pinch-hitter Tyler Moore in the seventh, as the offense failed to push more than one run across against Justin Nicolino. Going for a sweep in Miami, the Braves bats were stymied by Justin Nicolino, and Tyler Moore’s pinch-hit, three-run homer off of R.A. Dickey handed them their 21st loss of the season. The low-scoring affair was plagued with wasted offensive opportunities by both teams in the early going. Two walks and a Freddie Freeman pop single into no man’s land loaded the bases in the top of the first, but Nick Markakis hit a...
