Braves fall to Mets despite solid outing by R.A Dickey

Braves fall to Mets despite solid outing by R.A Dickey

Braves bats held in check by Mets pitching. R.A. Dickey turned in a solid performance on the mound but the Atlanta Braves weren’t able to muster any offense in a 3-0 loss. Dickey came into Saturday’s start struggling having allowed 21 hits and 12 earned runs over his first 15 innings. He got off to a rocky start on Saturday when Rio Ruiz misplayed a grounder that Juan Lagares turned into a triple to lead off the game. Lagares then scored on a passed ball by catcher Kurt Suzuki to give the Mets a quick 1-0 lead. Dickey struck out Ty Kelly for the first out of the inning but Michael...

Dickey struggles as Braves fall 9-3 The Braves offense was relatively quiet on Monday aside from RBI singles from Brandon Phillips and Jace Peterson.

Braves spring training: R.A. Dickey not concerned about early struggles

Despite early mixed results, Dickey thinks he is close to ready. Spring training has been a bit of a mixed bag for new Braves starter R.A. Dickey but despite his struggles, he thinks he is close to ready for the regular season. Dickey allowed eight hits and six runs (five earned) over 4 1⁄3 innings in an 8-6 loss to the Tigers on Wednesday. He has made three spring appearances so far and has allowed 15 hits and 13 runs in 9 1⁄3 innings. The defense behind Dickey has been shaky as only eight of those 13 runs have been earned. Still a 7.71 ERA is a bit concerning for a pitcher who...

Tigers maul Dickey, Braves lose 8-6

The knuckler wasn’t knuckling effectively and the Braves lost despite a two-run double from Matt Kemp and a homer from Kurt Suzuki. Even in Spring Training, when the opposing starter fails to go an inning, you expect to have a good game. Unfortunately, that’s not what happened for the Braves this afternoon against the Tigers, as R.A. Dickey struggled again and the Braves fell by an 8-6 score. Despite the sad ending, the game started out well for the Braves, who jumped all over Detroit starter Jordan Zimmermann. Brandon Phillips singled with one out, and moved to second on a single from...

Sims starts, Braves hit 3 homers in 5-2 win over Mets

The Braves held the Mets to just two runs off of Lucas Sims and mashed three homers to come away with a victory. Lucas Sims got the start today, bumping R.A. Dickey to avoid over-exposing him to a division rival that figures to face him a handful of times this coming season. Sims started the game off in rocky fashion, allowing two runs in his first inning of work, but buckled down to throw two more scoreless frames while allowing just one more hit. After that, the offense and bullpen took over, claiming a victory over a split-squad Mets contingent. As noted, the game did not start off great...

Braves drop both of their split squad games vs. Marlins and Phillies

Max Fried may have had a good day on the mound, but some of his fellow Braves pitchers couldn’t say the same — both in Lake Buena Vista and in Clearwater. As far as results go, Saturday was a day to forget for the Braves as they ended up dropping both of their split squad games. R.A. Dickey got the start against the Marlins for the Braves’ home game today and he wasn’t as sharp this time around as he was in his previous start. The Marlins battered him for four runs in the first inning, and he eventually made it through three innings with five runs allowed. With that being said, he...
