Sorry for the absence of an OT yesterday but really, who cares? The Braves don’t seem that interested, winning only 4 games in September despite facing only one team with a winning record.
Time to clean house, no?
The Bravos have been shutout five times and scored two runs or fewer in four games. Opponents have outscored them 75-38 this month. That’s two runs for every run scored, and with Jacob DeGrom, 8-1 with a 1.81 ERA in his last 11 starts, pitching for the Mets that streak of futility is likely to continue.
On top of that, Jay Hey and Gattis are still unable to go and today’s clean-up and fifth hitters are batting .125 and .156 in September.
Bonifacio 9, Gosselin 4, Freeman 3, JUpton 7, Johnson 5, Simmons 6, Bethancourt 2, BUpton 8, Santana 1
And we’re still waiting for news on Mike Minor’s shoulder.
Quite a month.
