Atlanta Braves news and notes from Friday

The Atlanta Braves capped off a slow day on the news front with a disappointing 11-10 loss to the Cincinnati Reds, who have now won their 12th consecutive game. The Braves cranked five homers, but it wasn’t enough to outlast the red-hot Cincinnati offense.

Friday’s game was a tough one to recap, so here are a few takeaways:

  • The Braves’ bats came out HOT in the first
  • AJ Smith-Shawver was off to a hot start but never recovered from a couple mistakes
  • Collin McHugh put together another rough outing
  • Reds rookie Elly de la Cruz is really good at baseball

All in all, the Braves fell to 48-27 and look to recover from a tumultuous game one loss with game two this afternoon at 4:10 ET.
