Series Review: Games 1-3

Series Roundup

It was a rough start to the Braves season. Three games where they had chances to win but they weren’t able to get the big hit they needed. Today’s game was a little different as they fell so far behind, they weren’t able to get all the way back despite the Mets giving them some opportunities.

They always say that the bats take longer to come around then pitching, and if that’s the case, it’s all uphill from here for the Braves. Of course a sweep does not look great but it is still early and if you didn’t think the Braves would get swept all year, well… you lost that bet. Like I said earlier, it’s a long season and it will be interesting how they respond against the Houston Astros starting tomorrow.
