Five players that have struggled that the Braves will need for their playoff push

The Atlanta Braves are scorching hot right now. However, they aren’t even playing their best baseball right now. Here are some players that need to up their games for them to get there. Make no mistake, the Atlanta Braves are playing incredibly well right now. They just demolished the Marlins in a four game sweep and have seized control of the top spot in the division with a strong push over the last couple of weeks buoyed by better pitching and an offense lead by Ronald Acuna Jr., Freddie Freeman, and Nick Markakis that looks downright scary. There are a lot of things to like about this...

Braves outlast Brewers, win slugfest 8-7

Braves homer three times including a seventh inning blast from Albies that put Atlanta ahead for good. The Atlanta Braves fell behind early but were able to outlast the Milwaukee Brewers at the end of an 8-7 victory Sunday at SunTrust Park.

Neither starting pitcher was around long in this one. Atlanta jumped on Anderson in the first plating a pair of runs on a run-scoring triple by Nick Markakis and an RBI single by Johan Camargo....

Sanchez removed early as precaution, Braves settle for series split with Nationals

The Braves bullpen was forced to cover 7 innings of today’s game. Not ideal. The game got off to a great start for the Braves with Anibal Sanchez pitching two solid innings and Nick Markakis getting the lead with a solo shot in the bottom of the second inning. The great start didn’t last long after Sanchez was bounced from the game after taking a liner off the calf to end the second inning as the Braves were forced to turn to rookie Wes Parsons who was making his MLB debut in long relief. Parsons immediately was hit hard along with some bad luck singles which don’t mix well and did...

Braves escape from New York with 5-4, extra-inning win

The Braves hit three homers in a seesaw affair that eventually ended in their favor. Nick Markakis drilled a go-ahead homer in the top of the 10th and Jesse Biddle navigated around a leadoff double in the bottom of the inning to deliver a tortured victory in a see-saw affair during their matinee finale in New York against the Mets. The first third or so of the game was not an auspicious start for the Braves, and could best be described as “demoralizing.” Julio Teheran, once again, featured subpar command and results. In the first, a leadoff walk to Amed Rosario led to a stolen base....
