Man, it feels like years since we’ve wrote that but wow does it feel good.  The Atlanta Braves win a game!  The Braves took the lead in the bottom of the 8th inning when Chris Johnson went the opposite way to score Justin Upton.

Not throwing a jab or anything to our next opponent, but how difficult would it be to be a Chicago Cubs fan?

Upton had a huge game as he scored both runs for the Braves on Tuesday.  The first was his solo home run in the bottom of the 4th inning off Tyler Lyons and the second run came in the Braves final offensive inning.

 

 

After the Braves scored in the 8th inning, Mr. Craig Kimbrel strolled to the mound to close it out for the Braves in the 9th inning.  With a strike out of Matt Adams, Jhonny Peralta pop out to first and Allen Craig strike out, the game has ended.

Braves win 2-1!!!  They are now 1-0 in the past one game since Gavin Floyd pitched.

    I liked the win. I disliked the RISP failures. The Braves need to swallow that $26M and DFA Uggla or sell his contract to the Japanese so he can play alongside Mejia. He’s been done for 18 months and is now costing us more by being there than by being gone.

      And if not for Freeman, Mr. Uggla would have made one or more potentially costly defensive mistakes….again. Time to pull the plug right now. This team was so successful despite everything last year that this is really their first taste of progressive failures. The entire organization needs to take a step back and reevaluate their priorities….which, if I’m not mistaken, the primary goal is to be a world series contender NOW. If they treat these recent struggles as just an aberration, then they are going to be destined for disappointment.

        I’m thinking a move will be made before this week is over. Pena or Tyler P will play tonight
