Well, the Braves lost again, and in the process lost the tiebreaker with the Padres that could but probably won’t matter when it comes time for playoff seeding. They were not bad by any means in this game, but some great defense on both sides and the combination of a relative lack of power from Atlanta and some bad sequencing luck resulted in a 1-0 loss. Regardless, a 5-1 road trip across central and pacific time zones against a bad team and a good team is a result that the Braves should be quite happy with. Next up is a big-time showdown in Atlanta with the reigning World Series champions, the Houston Astros, who the Braves defeated in the 2021 World Series.
Mike Soroka was strong over six shutout innings in Gwinnett on Monday and he may be an option to join the major league squad sooner rather than later.
