Big series has Ruiz primed for extended stay

Thu, 25 May 2017 17:00:48 EDT

Rio Ruiz was distraught last week when the Braves opted not to promote him from Triple-A Gwinnett after Adonis Garcia was placed on the disabled list.

Wed, 24 May 2017 03:48:34 EDT

This might not have been as wacky as the 19-inning game these same two teams played in 2011. But a long rain delay combined with an exchange of ninth-inning rallies certainly made things interesting as the Braves completed a 6-5 win over the Pirates during the wee hours of Wednesday morning.



Braves show resiliency in Freeman's absence

Wed, 24 May 2017 03:20:33 EDT

Instead of allowing themselves to languish in the reality that they will spend the next two months without Freddie Freeman, the Braves have benefited from the addition of Matt Adams and shown a sense of resiliency that manifested itself yet again during the wee hours of Wednesday morning, when a pair of two-out, ninth-inning hits equated to a 6-5 walk-off win over the Pirates.

Tue, 23 May 2017 01:05:41 EDT

Sat, 20 May 2017 01:16:25 EDT
