Open thread, 7/7, Braves vs. Jeff Parretts
Eight years ago to the day, Jeff Francoeur, making his Braves debut, hit a three-run homer off Glendon Rusch en route to a defeat of the Cubs. The Braves improved to 49-37 with the victory — one win shy of their record today.
I’m going to start writing more panicky posts about this team. Every time I do the Braves make me look silly.
That said, I still think hitting Chris Johnson, now batting .333 with a .853 OPS, 8th is stupid.
Simmons 6, Heyward 9, JUpton 7, Freeman 3, McCann 2, Uggla 4, BUpton 8, CJohnson 5, Medlen 1
Speaking of hot hitters, B-Mac’s resurgence has gone almost unnoticed. He’s batting .487 with 6 doubles, 3 HR and 11 RBI in his past 10 games and .293 BA and .912 OPS for the year.
