    Braves Series 14 of season vs Nats

    3 game set. Hope we have Freddie for this series. Odds are not in our favor of that happening.


    Game 1 Fri 7:35 with Dickey vs Gonzalez
    Game 2 Sat 4:10 with Colon vs Scherzer
    Game 3 Sun 1:35 with Garcia vs Strasburg
    Oh, I've slipped the surly bonds of earth,
    And danced the skies on laughter-silvered wings......

    And, while with silent lifting mind I've trod
    The high untresspassed sanctity of space,
    Put out my hand and touched the face of God.

    I hope we are at least competitive in the series.

    Losing Freeman just messes with everything.

    Would someone/anyone explain to me, why with bases loaded, score tied at 4, Bot 7th, 2 outs, Snickters sends Rio Ruiz o the plate instead of Flowers???

    Would someone/anyone explain to me why Blaa tries to field a slow hit roller bare handed with a runner at 2nd and misses the ball allowing the runner to score. Field the ball with glove, give up the IF single but hold the runner at 2nd.

    There were several other basic BB mistakes made. What is happening in the MiLB and at MLB level that instruction in playing the game correctly has disappeared?

    With score still tied at 4 in Bot 8th, Markakis singles in Brandon who had singled and stolen 2nd, then scored on Suzuki's HR deep to LF. 7-4 Braves going to 9th.

    Johnson in to try to save this game.

    Lind --- GO 6-3 from behind 2nd

    Turner --- GO 5-3

    Werth --- GO 5-3

    The team stepped up to cover Freddie's absence. Braves had a DBL steal and 2 other stolen bases, all 4 by Inciarte and Phillips 2 each. A good win and great team effort.

    Final ---

    Braves 7-4 on 12 hits, 1 error, 3-11 w/RISP, 11 LOB, Dickey went 6 IP and surprisingly did not throw a WP or cause Suzuki a PB.

    1 WP by Gonzalez
