Braves look for consolationSeason form
The Braves continue to slip down the standings, they have lost four games on the bounce to fall to 76-70 for the season, which is currently atop the NL East.
“We were basically in a deadlock for four months of the season and playing behind,” pitcher Charlie Morton said. “I really don’t think that the challenge is any different in a bad way. If anything, I think we’re still in a good spot. This is going to happen. We’re going to play really good baseball, and we did and we put ourselves in a really good spot. Now we just got to right the ship.”
Max Fried has enjoyed a decent season, with a 11-7 record, an ERA of 3.47 with a WHIP of 1.18 and a K tally of 143.
