How many more losses before KK is pulled from our rotation??? Its painful to watch the Ls keep piling up for him.
When JJ gets back, KK better be gone. Surely Bobby will not take Medlen out of the rotation.

BIG WIN tonight over the Dodgers. After lookin pretty rough, a 7 run 7th was awesome. Great to see my man Big Mac get a BIG HIT, less than a foot from going out the opposite way
Good to see that Kimbrel kid back here too Even Manny Ramirez tipped his helmet(sort of) to him after the game winning strike out. That was RESPECT!

Go Braves!!

Looks like the Braves had quite a batting rally in today's win with 14 hits. (Also, at least on the road Atlanta split the series with 2 wins with the Dodgers over this last weekend.)


Tuesday, June 8, 2010:

Braves 7, D-backs 5

Box score details:

Hope they can win this series on the road over Arizona.

Left a lot of guys on base, but still got it done. Props to Medlen for his all-around effort!

yeah lots of LOB, but some timely hitting, too, especially Glaus and the Melk man in the late innings.

Bummers of a loss for the Braves. Wish they would've saved some from last nite to win today. Hope they at least split the series with a final Atlanta game win. Too bad again for KK gonna have to wait to pitch & try to win his 1st game another day.

First home run allowed by Moylan since March 30, 2008.

actually, I agree with you. But I still think a healthy Chipper is better than Infante, though.

Only 1.5 in front of the Mets. Phillies lost again, too.

The best pitching I ever remember seeing albeit was a Closer, is Mariano Rivera throwing the HIGH HEAT! I would like to see more of it from our Braves!

Got the rebounding win we really needed last night!!

Really Good Game and Bobby Cox got the Home Depot Player of the game award by calling the suicide squeeze in the top of the ninth!!

That was awesome!

Glaus is on fire and Prado continues his hot streak. Once again, Medlen picks up the W and the Braves take two out of three from the Twins, who own the best record in interleague play in recent years.
Still 1.5 up on the Mets; Phillies fall back to 3.5.

6-5 on that road trip is incredible. We played 11 straight days in 3 cities, 3 different time zones, against a division leader (Twins), the NL Wild Card leader (Dodgers), and Arizona who has a pretty good record at home.

Yeah, we probably left a game or two out there, but overall that's a very successful trip. Pitching was great. Prado and Glaus are a 2-man wrecking crew.

Schultzy has been reading my blog...

If Braves’ Pendleton got blame before, he better get credit now

http://blogs.ajc.com/jeff-schultz-bl...er-credit-now/

Quote:
So does this mean Terry Pendleton isn’t so bad?

(Sarcasm.)

After going 6-5 on what could have been a crushing 11-game road trip, the Braves are 14-5 since a 6-4 loss to Florida – Kenshin Kawakami shockingly was the losing pitcher – and 29-13 (.690) since a nine-game losing streak.

Nobody figured they were that bad at 8-14. Some probably wonder if they’re really this good at 10 games over .500 in mid-June.

But I just wanted to bring something to your attention. Despite still getting little production from their expected primary run producers – Chipper Jones, Brian McCann, Yunel Escobar – the Braves have been climbing in National League statistical categories.

They rank No. 1 in walks (.295), No. 1 in on-base percentage (.352), No. 2 in doubles (124), No. 2 in runs (.327), No. 4 in batting with runners in scoring position (.277), No. 5 in total hits (.565) and No. 6 in batting average (.262). All in all, that’s pretty good for a lineup most of us wanted to blow up in April.

Which leads me back to Pendleton.

During this 14-5 stretch, the Braves are scoring 5.58 runs per game. That’s a full run more than the previous 45 (4.58).

Hitting and pitching coaches get way too much credit and blame. Pendleton wasn’t the reason Jeff Francoeur nose-dived in Atlanta. Similarlly, Pendleton is not the reason Martin Prado has turned into a .332 hitter. Coaches can help only so much in terms of pointing out flaws and making suggestions. Players either adjust or they don’t.

When Leo Mazzone left the Braves for Baltimore, it was comical the way some fans believed the Braves were suddenly going down like Pompeii, as if Mazzone created the greatness that was Greg Maddux, Tom Glavine and John Smoltz.

What happened when Mazzone went to the pitching-poor Orioles? Suddenly, he stunk. All those people who whined when he left the Braves suddenly went mute.

Funny. The same thing is now happening with Pendleton’s critics. We’ve gone from screams to crickets.

If Pendleton is going to get the blame for Nate McLouth, he needs to get some credit for Troy Glaus, Eric Hinske and Omar Infante.

Can’t have it both ways, folks.

Time for the Braves to build on their 2 game winning streak. After the rain delaying the start of the game, unfortunately the 1st inning is not starting off well with Tampa Bay being in Atlanta scoring 4 runs in the top of the 1st & tied for 1st in their division along with having a much better road record than their home game record. Hope the Braves can keep up.

Here's a quick web link to the MLB scoreboard:

http://mlb.mlb.com/mlb/scoreboard/

At least the Braves scored a run in the bottom of the 1st.

Chipper just went yard for a solo HR in the bottom of the 8th, but Braves still way behind, currently losing 4 to 10 and it does not help that Atlanta has 4 errors for the nite so far. Too bad Kawakami will not get his 1st win of the season even though the Braves have 14 hits to TB's 13 hits so far.
