Atlanta Braves news and notes from Saturday

The Braves dropped their second straight game to the Padres, falling to 6-3. They ill turn to the rookie Dylan Dodd to try and salvage a series split, after Dodd was good in his first outing. They also suffered a serious loss, as Travis d’Arnaud was concussed and will hit the concussion IL on a scary collision at the plate that turned into a pretty weird play as well. Chadwick Tromp would presumably be the most likely candidate to replace Travis on the active roster and Sean Murphy would appear likely to get as much playing time as he can handle with Travis out.

The Braves will play on ESPN’s Sunday Night Baseball at 7:10 PM on Sunday to close out their four game home series against the Padres.
