Braves Diary (51, 52, 53, & 54/162)

All things considered, the 4 game series against the Nats was a disappointing miss, especially last night’s game. The Braves really needed to do something to try to get back to .500, and at least taking 3 out of 4 would provide more optimism going into a the big weekend series against the Dodgers. But as it is, this is the team that we’ve got.

Braves Diary (44, 45, & 46/162)

Well, a difference a couple of days makes.

Thursday night wasn’t great. It felt like a missed opportunity to follow up that Mets walk-off win. Fortunately, the past two days have banished those thoughts.

Friday night I had plans as we’re starting to open up on the West Coast. But as I checked updates on my phone the score just kept getting more absurd. The stat you need to know: the Braves went from a -19 run differential on the season to 0. Not bad.

I settled in for a lazy Saturday afternoon. Acuña hit a first pitch homer, because people continue to throw him first pitch fastballs for whatever reason. From there, the offense continued to show encouraging signs of life against this moribund Pirates squad, but then again, you’re supposed to be able to clean up against teams like the Pirates. Bryse Wilson also had his best start of the season, as the rotation continues figure it out.

They’ll go for the series win today.
