Well the Braves lost yet another day game, which has been a strange theme of late for an otherwise dominant Atlanta team. Charlie Morton twirled an absolute gym and Orlando Arcia hit a homer, but a few late runs sunk the Braves, sealing a two game split with the Phillies. The Braves will now meet up in New York with last minute trade deadline acquisition Raisel Iglesias for a potentially pivotal five game series against the NL East leading Mets that includes a doubleheader. The Braves enter the series 3.5 games behind the Mets for the division lead.
Raisel Iglesias will join the Braves in New York, as Jay Jackson was called up to fill his roster spot for Wednesday, and Wednesday alone.
