Oz and Ocuna are the future and it looks brighter than it has in a long long time. Glad we were up enough ( 4-1 ) to stick Viz. back out there to close it. That's the only way to get his confidence back. We have some problem areas and are still in 1st place.

Get Fox Sports out there to his house, I'd watch that!

I know it's random, but if Albies doesn't hit for the cycle this season I'd be shocked.

Don't have to worry about that for 6-7 years. And the Braves will likely sign them to extensions that will buy out their arbitration years.

Lester on the mound for the Cubbies tonight. I hope Ozzie and Ender bunt his "no-fielding" behind to death.

They way he throws to first, I'd imagine even Snitker could get a running lead on him...

Yep, they can see a finger barely come off the bag, but can't see a hand on home plate or the foot on first base before the ball is caught.

It was a worthwhile experiment with very little invested. Now the countdown to Riley's debut begins...

Awesome rocking Braves 9th-inning 6-run rally comeback win to take the series,
after Teheran's 4th-inning disaster giving up 6-runs, & bullpen giving up 3-runs in the last 3 innings did not help either.

No need to count them out too quickly late in games with this kind of potential being demonstrated.

Sure is nice when the Braves hitting machine is cranking to help offset pitching deficit lapses.



Time = 2:34

Swanson's walk-off single completes rally: 5/20/18

Published on May 20, 2018

Daily Recap: Dansby Swanson hit a walk-off single that capped a 6-run 9th in the Braves' 10-9 comeback win







Braves highlight tweets:

Quote:
#BRAVES JUST SCORED 6 RUNS IN THE BOTTOM OF THE 9TH TO WIN THIS GAME!
Quote:
@Braves were down 9-4 entering the 9th.
What a comeback. #WALKOFF
Quote:
Chipper Jones
@RealCJ10
Unreal!!! Great win fellas
Quote:
#Braves rallied from a five-run ninth-inning deficit for their biggest ninth-inning comeback in exactly eight years, when Brooks Conrad capped a seven-run rally with a game-ending grand slam on May 20, 2010.
Quote:
6 runs in the bottom of the 9th to win it. THAT is a nice comeback!
Quote:
TFW you remember some of those mean Tweets y’all were sending us in the middle of the game...
Quote:
Ender Inciarte
@enderinciartem
Thank you to all the fans who reached out to check how I’m feeling. All good and I’ll be ready for tomorrow! 💪🏻

Braves rally for 6 runs in 9th, beat Miami on Swanson's hit

Quote:
Ronald Acuna Jr. drove in two runs in the seventh and another in the ninth as the Braves moved 11 games over .500 for the first time since July 5, 2014. Atlanta has won nine of its last 12 and keeps performing well in the clutch with an NL-best 88 runs scored this season in the seventh inning or later.
Quote:
"I almost expect 'em to do it," said manager Brian Snitker, whose club has 43 victories in its last at-bat, most in the majors, since he took charge on May 16, 2016. "I mean, down six in the bottom of the fifth, I felt good. I really did. I thought that these guys have a lot of time to go to work here and then you get a little bit farther away, but they never stop. It's a great win for these guys."
Quote:
Miami led 6-0 after four innings and 9-4 to begin the ninth.
