The 10 worst games in A-Braves history: July 30, 1978

W: W Fryman (6-7), L: T Boggs (2-6)

I remember listening to this game on the radio as a kid. By the end of the third inning, I started to comprehend just how bad the local nine were.

Things dont always go better with Skok

This was the day Braves-killer Larry Parrish (yes, that one) homered in three consecutive innings. Two of the homers came off Craig Skok, charged with nine hits and eight runs in 2-2/3 IP.

Surprisingly, the Braves entered the day with a better record (48-54) than the Expos. They would win only 21 games the rest of the year.

  1. I remember those days well, thanks for the memories. At least in the 70s as a young Braves fan I never got my hopes up that they would actually win the division.
