Atlanta needs to find a way to get the offense going in order to avoid its fourth-straight defeat.

Kyle Wright and the Atlanta Braves will try to stop the bleeding Saturday when they continue their series against the Philadelphia Phillies. Atlanta dropped its third straight game Friday night in lopsided fashion falling 9-1. The loss dropped the Braves 2.5 games behind the New York Mets in the NL East standings.

The Atlanta Braves placed rookie right-hander Spencer Strider on the 15-day injured list Saturday with a strained left oblique muscle. Strider's designation is retroactive to Wednesday and was one of a series of moves made by the team ahead of Saturday's game in Philadelphia.

Spencer Strider won’t be able to face the Mets in Atlanta as a result of this move

A few days ago, when the Braves reshuffled their rotation, it looked like they were giving Spencer Strider a breather and lining him up to face the Mets in Atlanta.

Now, all of that appears to have been thrown into disarray, as Strider is hitting the Injured List and appears likely to miss the rest of the regular season:

With just 11 games remaining, things are still up for grabs in the National League’s playoff picture.

The gap in the NL East race widened again Friday night as the Atlanta Braves lost to the Philadelphia Phillies while the New York Mets won in Oakland. Friday’s results brought a shakeup in the Wild Card standings. Here is how everything looks heading into play Saturday.

Jake Odorizzi struggled again as the Atlanta Braves dropped their third straight game with a 9-1 loss against the Philadelphia Phillies Friday night. Odorizzi allowed eight runs in just four innings and Atlanta’s offense didn’t do much against Aaron Nola. Atlanta fell behind 9-0 before Robbie Grossman’s sacrifice fly in the seventh scored Eddie Rosario. Atlanta managed just six hits on the evening and left seven men on base. Austin Riley...

2.5 games behind the Mets after Friday’s loss

The Atlanta Braves are on a three-game losing streak after dropping Friday night’s game against the Philadelphia Phillies 9-1. The Phils jumped on Braves starter Jake Odorizzi early, scoring four runs in the second inning. Odorizzi’s night was done after going four frames, surrendering eight runs, striking out six and walking three.

The Braves had another quiet night on the offensive front. They...

Tough matchup plays out as expected as Braves lose 9-1 to Phillies

The Braves made an unfavorable matchup way worse by forcing way too many innings out of Jake Odorizzi

Last week, the Braves somehow prevailed in a Jake Odorizzi-Aaron Nola matchup, in exciting fashion. On Friday night, with their worst single-game odds of the year, they couldn’t do it twice, getting walloped by the Phillies and dropping their third game in a row. To be honest, this game doesn’t really warrant a full recap, as the Braves more or...

Jake Odorizzi vs. Aaron Nola

The Braves have, at least by one measure, less than a 37 percent chance of winning this game. Those are their lowest odds for a single game on the season, and only the third game below 40 percent. They lost both of those other games. They probably won’t have a game with lower odds-to-win this year.

On the flip side, they somehow won the Jake Odorizzi-Aaron Nola matchup last week, so maybe lightning will strike twice....

What’s next for Mike Soroka following his latest injury

Atlanta needs to get things figured out quickly.

With just 12 regular season games remaining, the Atlanta Braves will try to snap a two-game skid and get back on track Friday night when they continue a four-game series against the Philadelphia Phillies. Atlanta suffered a 1-0 defeat in the opener Thursday night as they were unable to come up with a key hit while leaving nine men on base. The loss dropped them to 1.5 games behind the New York Mets,...

Justyn-Henry Malloy is thriving since promotion

A few days ago, Justyn-Henry Malloy was promoted from Mississippi to Gwinnett for the final few weeks of the season. Malloy began the year in High-A Rome, the same place Vaughn Grissom started the season, and like Grissom, Malloy hasn’t stopped hitting every step of the way.

Braves Minor League Recap: Justyn-Henry Malloy keeps hitting

Justyn-Henry Malloy | Mills Fitzner

Justyn-Henry Malloy hasn’t slowed at all after a recent promotion to Triple-A, and reached base three times last night.

On a night with just one game and it was a game that wasn’t pretty as the Stripers went with a bullpen game and didn’t manage much offense. The biggest standout was once again Justyn-Henry Malloy who is doing a great job at finishing off his great year with a strong showing in his very small sample size in Triple-A.
