Battery Power Podcast: A 30-run margin against the Metropolitans

The Atlanta Braves finished up a run of eight games in seven days with a 5-3 record this week. It wasn’t always pretty by any means, but it was successful as the Braves maintain a large lead in the NL East.

To that end, Episode 412 of the Battery Power Podcast strikes a relatively upbeat tone with Brad Rowland and Scott Coleman discussing the following:

  • The Braves split a four-game series with the Pirates despite scoring 25 runs and getting fantastic production from the bullpen
  • (Yes, the starting pitching was that bad in the Pittsburgh series)
  • Yonny Chirinos is not looking great right now in the No. 5 spot in the rotation
  • Atlanta blasted the New York Mets in historic fashion on Friday and Saturday
  • Matt Olson, Austin Riley, Ozzie Albies, and Ronald Acuña Jr. are out of their minds
  • Sunday’s game was pretty maddening, including a bizarre catcher’s interference and all kinds of other hijinx
  • The 2023 MLB playoff schedule is out and, if anything, it seems to favor the strengths of Atlanta’s roster
  • Looking ahead to Atlanta’s matchups against the New York Yankees and San Francisco Giants this week
  • Much, much more
