Daily Hammer Podcast: Disappointing dose of deja vu for Atlanta

The Braves offense struggled on Wednesday and they are now one game back in the NL East.

MLB: Atlanta Braves at Washington Nationals Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports

For the second straight Wednesday, the Braves experienced a 3-2 loss to the Washington Nationals. This time around, the Braves actually came back twice but loss the game in extra innings. Though there were a few encouraging signs, such as the bullpen and Matt Olson continuing to work his way out of an extended slump, the end result is Atlanta once again falling one game behind the New York Mets in the NL East.

Shawn Coleman recaps the Wednesday’s action and highlights a few storylines for upcoming series against the Mets:

  • Offensive struggles return at inopportune time
  • Braves bullpen excels once again
  • Matt Olson continues to see his power return to form
  • How might lineup look for Mets Series?
  • Who will man second base?
  • The Braves must have the better overall pitching this weekend
