The 10 worst regular season games in A-Braves history

Our list begins in 1977, when the Braves got off to a surprising 8-5 start. They were 8-7 on April 25 when they played host to the defending world champion Reds. Knucksie started and didn’t make it out of the first, allowing 6 runs. Enter Jamie Easterly (5.72 ERA, 1.758 WHIP in 6 years as a Brave), who…

The 10 worst A-Braves games (tie): April 5/9, 2003

Hard to believe a game started by Greg Maddux made it onto our list. Harder to believe two games started by Mad Dog made it. Not only that, they took place in the same week. And the best fielding pitcher ever made errors in both games. Mad Dog lasted only two innings in the first…

No one could have seen 2008 coming. Jorge Campillo was arguably the second most dependable hurler on a team that built its reputation on pitching. Jo-Jo Reyes (1.646 WHIP) started 22 games;  Charlie Morton (1.621 WHIP) started 15. Chuck James, who looked so promising in 2006, finished with a 9.10 ERA in 7 starts. Then…

The 10 worst games in A-Braves history: June 28, 1988

This 13-7 defeat wasn’t the worst loss of the ’88 season, just one of many really bad games played by the most godawful team in Atlanta Braves history. They had SEVEN losing streaks of at least 5 games, including the season’s first 10 games in which they were outscored 60-27. The June 28 loss, which…
