The Atlanta Braves and Colorado Rockies somehow played 10 innings in what was pretty much a continuous rain storm Wednesday night. Of course the Braves fell 3-2 and the damage to the infield at Truist Park ultimately left it unplayable for Thursday’s series finale.

The grounds crew covered the field after the completion of Wednesday’s game and that didn’t allow it any opportunity to dry out. In fact,...

Ian Anderson hopes to break this discouraging trend tonight

For four innings last night, Huascar Ynoa couldn’t be touched by the Rockies. He struck out seven, and it looked like he was well on his way to another gem.

Braves Minor League Recap: Andrew Hoffman pitches 7 scoreless innings

Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Andrew Hoffman capped off his professional debut with seven shutout innings in Augusta’s win

It was a bit of a short one down on the farm, as two rainouts cut into the overall action. The two remaining games featured great starting pitching but went in opposite directions once that was over. The star of the day was 12th rounder Andrew Hoffman who improved his ERA on the season to 2.73.

This potential 2022 Braves lineup should have fans excited for the future

A couple of weeks ago, Clint Manry went through how the Braves 2022 rotation could be one of the best in franchise history. That’s pretty significant considering all the historic rotations the Braves have put together over the years, but it certainly could be the case.

Could Sean Newcomb be the answer to some of the bullpen woes?

A month ago, I wasn’t sure we’d ever see Sean Newcomb in a Braves uniform again. However, injuries to several relievers along with expanded rosters have given him at least one more chance in Atlanta, and so far, he’s making the most of it.
