Shades of a May weekend in Denver, circa ’93

On May 6, 1993, the Braves staggered into old Mile HIgh Stadium 13-15, having been held to one run the night before by Bob Walk, who sucked.

The Braves went on to sweep the four-game series, outscoring the Rockies 46-22. Jeff Blauser and David Justice homered three times; Sid Bream and Mark Lemke, twice. The Bravos  never flirted with .500 again.

The 2013 Braves topped that run differential by three runs, destroying the Rox 40-13. I won’t compare this Braves team to that one — I’m not dumb.

But sometimes it’s fun when history repeats.
