The Braves had a rough night as they fell to the Marlins 4-2 and they also so both Tyler Flowers and Brian McCann get hurt. Flowers could potentially avoid missing any time, but it seems reasonable to expect him to at least miss a game or two after taking a pitch off his hand. McCann for sure is headed for the injured list with a hamstring strain.

Here is manager Brian Snitker talking about the injuries and the game.

To further explain how his injury went down and his overall state of mind after it happened (as well as some kind words for Kyle Wright), Brian McCann spoke with the media as well.

Tyler Flowers in his postgame interview seemed to indicate that normally he would have come out of the game after being hit like he was, but given McCann had already left the game leaving only Charlie Culberson as the emergency catcher, he stayed in. Unfortunately, he was so sore that he had to try and bunt rather than take an actual swing.

Finally, to end things on a good note, Kyle Wright was quite good on Saturday night with only a pair of solo home runs as blemishes on his line. Here is Kyle talking about his first home start as an Atlanta Brave.
