Matt Adams sent the game to extra innings with a three-run home run in the ninth off of closer Kenley Jansen but Logan Forsythe came through in the 10th to give the Dodgers a 5-4 win.

Atlanta entered the ninth trailing 4-1 and appeared to be facing a tough hill to climb having mustered just two hits through the first eight innings. Freddie Freeman got things started with an opposite field single. Matt...

The ‘Swanson Situation’ Requires Patience, Long-Term View

By Bud L. EllisBravesWire.com ATLANTA — The ball leaves the pitcher’s hand, takes its appointed path bending toward the outside corner of the plate, and the batter swings over the top of the sliding sphere as the ball thuds into the catcher’s mitt. The umpire cries, “strike three,” the crowd groans, and the 23-year-old hitter with the boyish good looks, the gorgeous hair, the aw-sucks temperament, and the weight of a hometown team and hometown friends on his young shoulders begins...

Sean Newcomb, Braves square off against Clayton Kershaw

Braves can earn a series win against the Dodgers on Sunday but they will have to defeat Clayton Kershaw.

The Atlanta Braves will face a formidable challenge on Sunday when they wrap up a four-game set against the Los Angeles Dodgers and Clayton Kershaw.

Atlanta took the first two games of the series in impressive fashion. The Braves jumped on Brandon McCarthy early in Friday’s series opener and then Jaime Garcia shut out the trade rumors surrounding him in a big 12-3 victory. Los Angeles...

Atlanta Braves Minor League Recap: Kevin Maitan blasts first career HR

The big news last night was that 17 year old super prospect Kevin Maitan hit his first career home run for Danville.

It’s finally happening. By it, I mean Kevin Maitan’s impressive power is starting to make an appearance in games as the 17 year old Venezuelan super prospect hit his first career professional home run last night in Johnson City. Not only did Maitan homer, but he really hit a long shot which made a loud sound off the bat in the video.

Series win over Dodgers in Braves’ sights

A win on Saturday would give the Braves a series win over the hottest team in baseball.

This series has gone exactly as everyone thought so far, right?

If you had the Braves not only beating the Dodgers -- the hottest team in baseball -- but routing them in one of the first two games of this four game series, you are a smarter person than any of us.

After returning from the All-Star break with a sweep of the Diamondbacks and following it up by getting swept by the Cubs, the Braves headed to...

Interest in Jaime Garcia heating up after talks with Twins stall, at least eight teams interested, per reports

The trade market for Jaime Garcia has not cool off at all after the deal with the Twins seemingly fell through.

Over the last 48 hours or so, it has been a rollercoaster ride in terms of the fate of Jaime Garcia. It appeared as though the Braves were very close to trading Garcia to the Minnesota Twins for, at the time, an unknown prospect.

However, the talks stalled as concerns over medicals on the players involved seemed to be the major hang up. With Jaime’s medical history, the...

Braves’ rumored deal with Twins for Jaime Garcia held up over prospect’s medical concerns

We now know the reason the Braves weren’t able to trade Jaime Garcia to the Twins.

It wasn’t Garcia’s medical past, as many speculated. Instead, according to Ken Rosenthal, it was the Twins prospect (who wasn’t named) who had some medical issues that the Braves weren't comfortable with. Combine that with some holdup over who would assume the bulk of Jaime’s remaining $4 million salary and it’s not hard to see why a deal fell through.

Last night, amidst 24 hours of rumors and...
