Atlanta Braves News and Links: Braves beaten down by the Snakes

Well that could have gone better. BRAVES NEWS D-Backs pull away from Braves in late innings RA Dickey was not great, and the Braves bullpen may have been worse. Atlanta gave up six runs in the sixth and seventh innings, with Matt Wisler and Ian Krol being the afflicted parties in those cases. In other news, Sean Rodriguez hit a long home run, his first this season and first as a Brave, to keep the good guys from getting completely embarrassed.

Dickey, Atlanta Braves bullpen rocked in loss to Diamondbacks

Not a whole lot went Atlanta’s way Monday night on either side of the ball as the team continued its west coast road trip. It was a tough night for the Atlanta Braves (47-51) in a 10-2 road loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks (57-42), as veteran R.A. Dickey (L, 6-7) exited with two outs in […] Dickey, Atlanta Braves bullpen rocked in loss to Diamondbacks - Tomahawk Take - Tomahawk Take - An Atlanta Braves Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

D-Backs pull away from Braves in late innings

Arizona scored six runs over the sixth and seventh innings on Monday night. It wasn’t R.A. Dickey’s night, but it certainly wasn’t the Braves bullpen’s night either. Leading by a pair of runs through five innings of game action, the Arizona Diamondbacks pulled away with six runs over the sixth and seventh innings to take home a 10-2 victory over the Atlanta Braves on Monday night in a series-opening win. The first four batters reached and scored for the Diamondbacks in the sixth inning off reliever Matt Wisler after the Braves had narrowed the gap to 4-2 in the fifth. A.J. Pollock...

Braves visit revenge-minded D-Backs

Braves visit revenge-minded D-Backs

The Braves swept Arizona just over a week ago. The last time the two teams met — just over a week ago — the Atlanta Braves swept the Arizona Diamondbacks in a three-game set. Arizona is just 2-6 since returning from the All-Star break and has fallen to third in the NL West, a game behind Colorado but still firmly in the second wild card spot. Beginning on Monday, the Diamondbacks will get a chance to improve that mark against a Braves team that just split a four-game series against the West-leading Dodgers. The Braves will send resurgent knuckleballer R.A. Dickey to the Chase Field...

CI Recap (7/19/17) – Cubs 8, Braves 2: Cubs Torch Atlanta, Complete Sweep

Chicago entered Wednesday’s brunch-time game with the Braves looking for a second consecutive sweep. A solid pitching performance and a red-hot offense made for an easy win and perfect start to the second half. Kris Bryant doubled off of knuckleball specialist R.A. Dickey in the 1st inning, then tried to advance to third on a … The post CI Recap (7/19/17) – Cubs 8, Braves 2: Cubs Torch Atlanta, Complete Sweep appeared first on Cubs Insider.

Cubs 8, Braves 2: Mike Montgomery pitches, bats Cubs to sweep

Cubs 8, Braves 2: Mike Montgomery pitches, bats Cubs to sweep

The Cubs have not lost a game since the All-Star break. Figures, right? Just when I get finished saying Mike Montgomery can serve the Cubs best in the bullpen, he puts together an outstanding six-inning outing. He allowed just one run on two hits with five strikeouts as the Cubs completed their sweep of the Braves and won their sixth consecutive game, 8-2. The six straight wins is a season high. Oh, yes. Montgomery added to his excellent pitching by hitting a home run: Mike Montgomery launches a solo home run to deep right off R.A. Dickey, his first career Major League homer, to extend...

Braves swept away by Cubs in 8-2 matinee loss

The Braves giveth and the Braves taketh away. The Atlanta Braves enjoyed the weekend sweep of the Arizona Diamondbacks in a big way. Then, they gave it all back. The home team never led on Wednesday afternoon and the end result was a loss at the hands of the Chicago Cubs, who broke out the brooms in strong fashion with a final score of 8-2. The visiting Cubs opened the scoring in the second inning based on some timely hitting. R.A. Dickey issued a walk to Kyle Schwarber and, after a wild pitch allowed him to move to second, Addison Russell brought his teammate to the plate with a...

The news isn’t great, but it could have been much worse. In the first inning of Wednesday afternoon’s Cubs game against the Braves in Atlanta, while Ian Happ was at bat and Kris Bryant on second base after a double, a pitch from R.A. Dickey briefly got away from Braves catcher Tyler Flowers. Bryant took off for third, but the ball didn’t get far away from Flowers and Flowers threw Bryant out.

Game Thread 7/19: Braves vs. Cubs

Afternoon baseball! It is always fun when real, live baseball arrives at 12:10 pm ET and that is exactly what transpires on Wednesday afternoon. The Atlanta Braves play host to the Chicago Cubs in the final contest of a three-game set at SunTrust Park and, to this point, the results have not been favorable for the home team. Still, R.A. Dickey has been absolutely tremendous in the recent past and he will have the opportunity to carry that forward against Chicago’s Mike Montgomery on Wednesday. Dickey is probably pitching over his head right now but that does not mean that the veteran...

Cubs vs. Braves preview: Atlanta aims to avoid sweep behind R.A. Dickey

Let’s see if the Braves can grab an afternoon victory at home. After a sweep on the positive side following the 2017 All-Star Break, the Atlanta Braves could be on the wrong side of the broom after Wednesday afternoon. R.A. Dickey takes the ball at SunTrust Park and he’ll be met by a Chicago Cubs team that has claimed the first two games against the Braves in the series. Dickey has been outstanding in five consecutive starts, allowing 1 run or fewer while eating up at least six innings in every outing. That spectacular stretch brings the veteran’s ERA down to 4.08 on the season and,...
