Seems like we play the Pirates in a lot of these.

Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Atlanta Braves – Box Score – April 29, 2012 – ESPN. A come-from-behind victory. Nice. Kind of a weird come-from-behind, as the Braves twice got a run more through Pirate weirdness than anything else. Tim Hudson, in his first start of the year, gave up two runs in the second inning on [...]
Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Atlanta Braves – Box Score – April 28, 2012 – ESPN. Randall Delgado wasn’t effective, and the Braves were mostly shut down by lefty Eric Bedard and the Pirates’ bullpen. It happens. The Pirates took the lead in the first on a hit, a groundout, a wild pitch and a sac fly; [...]
Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Atlanta Braves – Box Score – April 27, 2012 – ESPN. That was close for a long way, but the Braves eventually broke it open. It’s only the Pirates, but it’s good to see them get some “extra” runs across. The Braves took the lead in the third when Tyler Pastornicky walked, [...]
Okay, I’m going to try to bring things back to normal around here, but we may have some morning recaps for awhile while I recuperate.
Atlanta Braves vs. Los Angeles Dodgers – Box Score – April 25, 2012 — ESPN. Hey-o! The Braves looked completely dead, but Brian McCann ignited a ninth-inning rally by lining a freaking single off of Javy Guerra’s freaking face, and they ended up winning by two. (Freeman, McCann, Uggla, Chipper, and Heyward combined for five [...]
Atlanta Braves vs. Los Angeles Dodgers – Box Score – April 24, 2012 – ESPN. Back to last year’s formula — pretty good starting pitching, just enough offense, and a shut-down bullpen. As last year showed, it can work pretty well, at least for a little while. The Dodgers got two runs in the first [...]
Atlanta Braves vs. Los Angeles Dodgers – Box Score – April 23, 2012 – ESPN. The Braves have problems — everyone does — but they have one big problem, and that is Jair Jurrjens. Jurrjens is now 0-2 with a 9.37 ERA. If you’re looking for a bright side, he didn’t allow a homer, but [...]
Atlanta Braves vs. Arizona Diamondbacks – Box Score – April 22, 2012 – ESPN. You can’t win them all. This particularly holds true when you allow five runs in about a minute. The Braves took a 1-0 lead in the first, with Michael Bourn (who had a super day, 3-3 with a walk and two [...]
Atlanta Braves vs. Arizona Diamondbacks – Box Score – April 21, 2012 – ESPN. So the Braves can win the close ones, too. Tommy Hanson had his best outing of the year, going seven innings, striking out seven, and allowing just two runs. Meanwhile, the bullpen was impervious. All the runs came early. The Braves [...]
