The Braves salvaged a win out of a disastrous series in Oakland before heading to Arizona

The Braves have not had a great few weeks, with the bullpen not living up to it’s billing and inconsistent offense. The offensive struggled were illustrated in a really bad showing this series in Oakland to only score 7 runs in the series against a team allowing an average of 7 runs per game. Of course, this is a tiny sample for the series, but the Braves have suffered from a combination of injuries, bad luck, and bad play over the last few weeks. With that being said, they have emerged from May with the fourth best record in baseball and a 4.0 game division lead, and still have an exceedingly talented team, now bolstered by the yet-to-debut AJ Smith-Shawver.
