For the most part, it was a slow news weekend for the Atlanta Braves and Major League Baseball. While everything remains in a holding pattern, the Braves have been celebrating some of their classic games by streaming them on their YouTube and Facebook pages. Sunday’s classic game was a replay was from April 26, 2018 in which Ronald Acuña Jr. launched his first career Major League home run.
While these games haven’t satisfied my itch for real baseball, it has been fun to revisit some of these games. That will continue this upcoming week as Fox Sports Southeast will be replaying the entire 1995 World Series.
MLB.com’s Anthony Castrovince put together a list of the best pitchers that never threw a no-hitter. Roger Clemens and Pedro Martinez are in the top two spots and followed closely by Greg Maddux.
Speaking of Martinez, Sunday’s Braves flashback traveled back to 2005 and a pitchers duel between Smoltz and Martinez with Atlanta pulling out a victory over the Mets.
