Today the Braves will send to the mound young lefty Sean Newcomb who has had a great, but still unlucky, start to 2018. Newcomb has struck out 15 batters in just 10.1 innings over two games against...

Braves blowout Rockies 8-3 and win third straight game

The Braves bats cannot be stopped. After a sizable delay in today’s game due to some snow finding its way to Coors Field, the Braves bats brought the heat. In the first inning the Braves got on the board with a moonshot from second baseman Ozzie Albies who is uber powerful for his size. The Braves were not done there as Freddie Freeman and Nick Markakis drew back to back walks in front of Kurt Suzuki who blooped a single to left center to load the bases. Preston Tucker has had a fine year to this point and continued his good work with a laser beam sacrifice fly to center field to score...

The Good, Bad and Ugly from the Braves’ first week

Thoughts on Freddie Freeman, Preston Tucker and losing two starting catchers within 15 innings We are now a week into the baseball season, and things have generally been good for the Braves.

As with all things this time of year, it’s an extremely small sample size and things could...

Rarely does a Max Scherzer start end with the Nationals allowing seven runs, but the Braves were able to touch up the right-hander as well as the Washington bullpen for a big win. BRAVES NEWS Foltynewicz shines, Tucker homers again in 7-1 win over Nationals The Braves jumped on the Nationals early in Wednesday afternoon’s contest, as Preston Tucker drove a three-run homer into the bullpen in right center to give Mike Foltynewicz a comfortable cushion with which to work. The right-hander did just that, out-dueling perennial Cy Young candidate Max Scherzer to give Atlanta an impressive...

Preston Tucker doesn’t know how long he’ll be in left field for the Braves before phenom Ronald Acuna arrives, but the unheralded Florida native is certainly making the most of his opportunity.
