The Atlanta Braves are on a four-game losing streak after a dismal weekend in Canada. That doesn’t inspire a ton of joy in Braves Country, but Episode 399 of the Battery Power Podcast is here to break down all the latest.

Scott Coleman and Brad Rowland discuss the following:

  • Max Fried is going to be out for a while and Kyle Wright may be out even longer. Where does that leave the Braves when it comes to the starting rotation and other big-picture concerns?
  • The Braves and Red Sox had a mid-week split of a short series
  • Spencer Strider was very good, as usual, on Friday but Toronto’s Chris Bassitt won the head-to-head battle with a complete game shutout against a scuffling Braves offense
  • The 7th inning was maddening on Saturday afternoon, to say the least, and the result was a third consecutive loss
  • Atlanta’s defense was catastrophic on Sunday and the Braves lost in walk-off fashion
  • The week ahead features a pair of solid, yet unspectacular, opponents for Atlanta
  • Much, much more
