The Braves could not carry over Monday’s magic into Tuesday as they dropped a tough one to the Rangers. Jared Shuster allowed three runs in five innings, doing is job to keep the game close. However, the bullpen once again struggled and the Braves could not find enough offense to come back.

Shawn Coleman looks at this and much more in this edition of the Daily Hammer.
