Braves fall to Nats in 11 after lengthy rain delay

Tomahawk Take Editor’s Note:  Atlanta’s bullpen gave up three runs in the 11th inning Saturday (Sunday morning) around 2:00am.  David Carpenter worked a great 10th inning but then in the 11th, gave up two hits and two earned runs.  James Russell relived Carpenter and gave up a walk and another run.  The Braves couldn’t answer in the bottom of the 11th.  Luckily, the Nats and Braves play the ESPN Sunday night baseball game so they are able to sleep in.

After waiting through an extremely long rain delay and then finding themselves playing extra innings in the wee hours of the morning, the Braves were obviously hoping to further distance themselves from the miseries they had encountered during their recent eight-game losing streak.

Instead their frustrations were extended as the Nationals constructed a three-run 11th inning and celebrated a 4-1 win early Sunday morning. En route to losing for the ninth time in their past 10 games, the Braves were reminded of the uncertainty that exists within a bullpen that was their strength last year.

“Our pitching staff is our best thing, and when we lose with them, we can’t really get upset because they picked us up and carried us the whole year, so it’s going to happen,” Freddie Freeman said. “It’s bound to happen and it’s probably going to happen again, but as an offense, we’ve got to do a better job of getting more than one run.”

Braves frustrated in 4-1 loss to Nats in 11

Tomahawk Take Editor’s Note:  The Braves’ bats must of not woke up from their naps during the rain delay. Atlanta scored only one run in Saturday night’s loss to the Nationals.  They loaded the bases with no outs in the sixth inning but couldn’t score.  Then in the 11th, Washington loaded the bases and Wilson Ramos‘ hit a single to spark a three run inning.

The start of the game was delayed by 3 hours, 41 minutes, and the final out was recorded Sunday at 2:29 a.m.

The Braves, who snapped an eight-game losing streak with Friday night’s 7-6 win over the Nationals, were frustrated by leaving 11 runners on base.

More offensive struggles wasted a strong start by Aaron Harang, who allowed one run in seven innings.

“It’s tough, especially against a team that we know we’re trying to make up ground on,” Harang said.
