Braves’ Broom Time!
Happy Mother’s Day to all your wonderful mothers, whether you are a Braves’ fan or not!
The Atlanta Braves have won two in a row! Yes, that’s two! Yes, in a row! Granted, the wins have come against a struggling opponent in the Chicago Cubs, with a struggling bullpen, and again the Braves have put few runs on the board in doing so. Be that as it may, you know the old saying, a win is a win is a win!
Both Julio Teheran in game 1, and Ervin Santana in game 2, pitched well, with Teheran limiting the Cubs to just 1 run on 1 hit, while walking only 2 batters and striking out 9! Santana followed up that performance in game 2 with a gem of his own, giving up 5 hits, but allowed zero runs, walked only 1 batter, and struck out 7 himself. As hot as Atlanta pitching can be most of the time, Braves’ bats are still relatively cold. We’ll again look to see improvements there today.
