Found September 15, 2013 on Love My Bravos:
It was the Braves annual Father Daughter day, and my dad even came early to watch batting practice with me. :) Well, by "watch" I mean I sat in the shade and he went down in the field level stands to catch a home run. (None went his way, aww.) Refraining from a 'you must be this tall to ride this ride' joke because Kimmie's pretty awesome. former Brave Mark Kotsay Michelle convinced me to post this one. Whatever's in his back pocket looked EXACTLY like a phone through my camera's 36x zoom. I like how some boys on Twitter insisted the players never ever ever have their phones on them during the game. Suuuure. And no one ever plays Candy Crush in church. Mmm hmm. Hate that this came out blurry. I need a good camera. We moved up to sit with Kolbi & P & Baby, but right before we went a couple of the Tomahawk Team girls brought my dad a prize pack. He was so happy! Two members of the Tomahawk Team just dropped my dad a prize pack. H...

Braves magic number holds at 4, Nats up next

Atlanta went into the 3-game set against the struggling San Diego Padres with high hopes of dropping their magic number to within division-clinching distance before the series in D.C. began Monday. However, best laid plans never seem to pan out in these situations. The Braves suffered 2 losses at the hands of the Padres and came away from the series with their magic number of 4 not...

Kris Medlen dominant in Braves’ win against Padres

Kris Medlen still is amazed that he’s become the senior active member of the Braves’ youth-brigade starting rotation — “It’s crazy; it’s nuts” he’d said on Friday — but since Tim Hudson was felled by a broken ankle Medlen’s indeed been that guy. And since Hudson’s season-ending injury July 24 Medlen has also raised his performance to another level pitching...

Braves Fans Don’t Look Back

Atlanta Braves fans have smirked and laughed all season at the cocky Washington Nationals’ problems.  The Nationals were the odds on favorite to win the National League East, but struggled to stay above .500 most of the season. Wait until next year for the Nationals, right? Well, not exactly.  The Nationals have won seven in a row and 18 of their last 22 games, to climb within...

Braves' offense flat in 4-0 loss to Padres

Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez is ready for his team to snap out of an offensive funk. ''Looking into the next few weeks, that's what we're looking for,'' Gonzalez said. ''We need to get back to swinging the bats and scoring some runs.'' Atlanta had just four hits and Julio Teheran couldn't make it through the seventh inning of a 4-0 loss...

Erlin pitches well but Padres fall to Braves 2-1

San Diego manager Bud Black says every start is an opportunity for young left-hander Robbie Erlin to learn another lesson. The lesson against the Braves was for Erlin to keep his pitches down. Erlin allowed only two runs in six innings but was hurt by a high fastball that Freddie Freeman hit for a homer in the sixth, and the Padres lost to the Braves 2-1 on Saturday night. '...

Daily Friar 9.14.13

Padres rumors: Mark Kotsay will retire at end of season

While You Were Drinking: Game 147 (SD vs ATL)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after an evening in the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking. The Padres dropped a close one to the Atlanta Braves, 2-1. Robbie Erlin pitched alright, giving up just 2 runs on 8 hits and a walk over 6 innings.
