    Erlin is out and Newcomb has been called back up. Hamels is on track to make an appearance next week and maybe even Folty and Fried, too. I would be much more comfortable with this group going into the playoffs than I would the soft-tossing veterans they have been running out there recently.

    Nice start so far for Anderson.

    I still don’t like Trea Turner!

    Can we not just win a game without making my butthole pucker?

    Good performance by the rookie. Nice to secure a series split with Scherzer coming up tomorrow.

    Is it just me or did it actually feel kinda a good to only score 2 runs and still win?

    It’s been a minute since we’ve won a pitcher’s duel

    Beat up on Scherzer a little bit, huh? Great job by Wright not letting the game spiral out of control this time. He has shown genuine improvement over the last two starts.

    The braves are getting Fried and Hamels back - Anderson starting to look pretty solid. If Wright could continue making improvements, pitching could be coming together at just the right time.

    Touki is struggling. I’ve had such high hopes for him.

    Well this is definitely a game to flush and forget about. Ugly.

    Good rebound win for the boys tonight. Ynoa was pretty impressive before the back injury. We finally get to see Cole Hamels in a Braves uniform tomorrow.

    Hamels wasn’t terrible. The bats need to wake up and get him off the hook, though.

    The boys are crushing homers tonight. Good to see Acuña get up off the mat. He’s been struggling to put the ball in play lately.

    That was the Kyle Wright we’ve been waiting for. Huge performance right there. All of the sudden, the rotation doesn’t look like such a big problem any more.

    What a heck of a heads up play by Freeman and Swanson in the 9th inning. That was a game saver. Good win.

    Definitely a game saver. Does Melancon ever make it through an inning clean?
