Bravos played them tough the past two nights and could easily have won both games. Alas, a double play that wasn’t, an ill-advised baserunning gamble and a lot of tough Gnats’ pitching and they lost both instead.
With young Wisler making his first road start, Freddie out and the Braves scuffling a bit with the sticks, it’s feeling like a sweep might be a comin’. But we shall see. These feelings are often wrong. No Andrelton today. I assume it’s a routine day off.
The lineup: Peterson, Maybin, Markakis, Pierzynski, Terdo 1B, KJ 3B, Gomes LF, Ciriaco SS, Wisler.
