#Braves tie a record

That’s usually a good thing, unless the ’88 Braves are the record-holder. John Malone’s Real Estate Concern is now 6-19, tied for worst start in franchise history after 25 games.

Before 8,377 fans at Fulco (on a  Friday night), the ’88 team fell to 6-19 after getting drubbed by the Phils. Tom Glavine lasted but one inning, walking three and allowing 5 runs and 6 hits. Charlie Puleo followed with the most unimpressive five shutout innings in baseball history, yielding 5 walks and 6 hits. Phils 7-Braves 3. The loss dropped the Braves to 11 games behind the division lead.

This year’s Braves are 12 games behind the Nats. So things are actually worse than they were 28 years ago.
