The Ledger-Enquirer picked up the story by the Sports Network, taking a look at last night’s game, and also taking a look at the final game of the series today pitting the Atlanta Braves against the Colorado Rockies. Take a look…
Atlanta Braves (34-30) at Colorado Rockies (30-35), 3:10 p.m. (ET)
Ervin Santana tries to keep heading in the right direction when he toes the rubber this afternoon for the Braves.
After yielding 20 runs over his previous four outings and going 1-2 in that span, Santana gave up only one unearned run in a no-decision in Arizona on Saturday. The righty worked around six hits and two walks in seven innings of work, though Atlanta lost 4-3.
The 31-year-old Santana is 5-2 with a 3.69 ERA on the year and unbeaten in his career versus the Rockies, going 2-0 in three starts despite a 5.59 ERA.
The Miami Herald picked up the recap of last night’s Atlanta Braves’ loss by the Atlanta Journal Constitution’s David O’Brien. Take a look at David’s recap.
Teheran gives up 7 runs in 8-2 loss to Rockies rookie
Teheran (6-4) was charged with 10 hits in 6 1/3 innings, the last of the seven runs scoring after slumping reliever David Carpenter replaced Teheran in the seventh. The hits matched a career-high allowed twice previously by Teheran, who gave up three runs in the first inning on four hits including Drew Stubbs‘ RBI double and Corey Dickerson‘s two-run triple.

Atlanta Braves at Colorado Rockies preview: Series finale in Denver
The Atlanta Braves began their trip to Denver in grand fashion with back-to-back victories, but after a disappointing, 8-2 defeat on Wednesday night, they are still in danger of splitting the series as Thursday afternoon approaches. With that, the Braves and Colorado Rockies are set to get together for the series finale in a mid-day game (local time) and it should be a very interesting match-up.
Todd Salem, featured columnist for the Bleacher Report, shares his thoughts on the strengths and weaknesses of the Atlanta Braves’ Top 10 Prospects. Take a look at Todd’s thoughts…
Biggest Strengths and Weaknesses of Atlanta Braves’ Top 10 Prospects
For the Atlanta Braves, one of these two events was much more impactful than the other. While Atlanta has some useful pieces in the minor leagues, it lacks a top-flight prospect that fans are clambering for. The Braves have also already promoted a couple of key men to the bigs in second baseman Tommy La Stella and reliever Shae Simmons.
