Brutal second half finally over

The headline says it all.  How Freddi G. keeps his job is beyond me.  Almost 100 losses.  Here’s to better luck in 2016.

Braves swept by a 9-3 score

Cubs bash 5 more HR’s.  Braves gave up 12 in 4 game series.  They had an 0-7 roadtrip.  Mama said there’d be days like this but sheesh!

Swisher’s big day not enough as Braves fall 9-7 to Cubs

Nick Swisher’s two HR’s (2, 3) and 4 RBI gave Atlanta a 7-3 lead going to the bottom of the 5th.  But on a windy day at Wrigley, Atlanta couldn’t keep the ball in the park.  Very frustrating loss and series.

Miller suffers tough luck 6-3 loss in Chicago

Miller couldn’t hold a 3-1 lead.  He was cruising until the 6th.  Markakis continued his good stretch at the plate with a 4th inning RBI double.

Braves upend D’Backs 3-2

Maybin had a great catch and Simmons scored 2- runs.  Folty looks to keep it going  Saturday night.

Braves stage wild comeback in 9-8 win vs Giants (Mon. 8/3)

Homers by Peterson (3), Johnson (3), Pierzinski (7) and Garcia (2) proved to be enough.  Braves came back from 6-0 deficit.  Pierzinski and Garcia homers were the most dramatic because they occurred late in the game, the former with 2 out in the 9th.  Garcia hit his in the 12th with the Braves trailing by one run.  Atlanta lost the next 2 games, but at least they provided some memorable moments for one night.

Braves salvage finale in Philly with 6-2 win

Theran pitched like we know he can and Peterson’s 3-run HR (2) proved to be the difference.  The previous 3 games were brutal drubbings.  Atlanta takes on the Giants at the Ted Monday night.

Braves swept in Baltimore

Not much to say about the last series as not much went right for Atlanta.  The Braves next begin a set in Philly.

New Call-up Garcia’s homer the difference in 3-2 win over Cards in series finale

Newcomer Garcia hit a go- ahead HR (1) in the 6th, making a winner of Matt Wisler.

Miller takes tough luck loss in 1-0 contest

The Cardinals scratched together a run in the 8th (Sac fly) and that was it.  They only had two hits, but it was enough.  Miller can’t buy a win.  He gets no run support.
