Gwinnett Braves 8, Indianapolis Indians 5
Chase d’Arnaud tripled and scored in the 1st inning.
Braves’ SS Josh Wilson was an Indianapolis Indian back in 2008, when he appeared in 97 games for the Tribe before being traded away to the Red Sox organization. Since that season, Wilson has been playing in the Pacific Coast League, so this series between the Indians and the Gwinnett Braves was his first visit back to Victory Field since 2008. Wilson went 1-for-4 in yesterday’s first game of the series, but he celebrated his return in a big way tonight, going 4-for-4, with two doubles and a home run. He scored two runs and drove in four runs, leading the Braves to a win over the Indians at Victory Field tonight. In fact, it was the Braves’ first win over the Tribe this season — the Indians swept the 4-game series in Gwinnett last month, and then won the first game of this 4-game series.
The Indians were first to score tonight, and usually that is a good omen for the Trib...

Alvarez blasted No. 18 on the season in Colorado on Wednesday.
Entering game action on Wednesday, Andrew McCutchen (.531 avg, 1.594 OPS) and Neil Walker (.490 avg, 1.357 OPS) were ranked No. 1 and No. 2 in the Majors in the month of July in average and OPS. But despite those two combining to go 0-for-8 on the day, Pittsburgh was still able to pull together a huge win in Colorado...

My camera has a really insane zoom. This was taken from section 312, in club level above the visitor's dugout. Randall looks nice though, doesn't he?
Went with Alison and Jenna, had a wonderful time, and seriously, why do I take so many more pictures when I'm with Alison and her megacamera? There are 138 pics from this game in the gallery, and they are almost all good...

The Atlanta Braves received a solid pitching performance from an unexpected source in their most recent contest to help extend their winning streak to a season-best seven games.
Jair Jurrjens' personal hot stretch also has been impressive given his earlier struggles.
The right-hander looks to remain unbeaten since being recalled from the minors when surging Atlanta hosts former...
Two weeks ago, during the game that we'll all remember as the Drew Sutton game, Andrew McCutchen and Garrett Jones had a little moment in the dugout after the Jones home run that gave the Pirates their first lead of the game. Jones's homer came on a ridiculous golf swing and after he and McCutchen rounded the bases, 'Cutch mocked the swing in the dugout with a huge grin...

Brian McCann was dominating the National League when Buster Posey was playing shortstop as a freshman at Savannah State. There’s a new sheriff behind the dish.
There’s no greater feeling as a franchise than having a young, cheap catcher who rakes on offense and is above-average behind the plate. Braves fans can tell you all about it. From 2006-2011 Brian McCann averaged an OPS...
The Pirates had some more problems on the mound on Wednesday afternoon, but were able to overcome them with a ton of offense. Four long balls helped the Bucs earn their second straight win in Colorado, giving them the series victory.
James McDonald was awful to open the game. He had no control whatsoever, and served up two very long home runs to the first three batters. It was 3...
Chipper Jones and Lance Berkman both made terribly hilarious plays on defense yesterday, but which was worse? I’ll go with the one that allowed the Giants to score. (-_-)
With the Pirates in need of a strong start to help them break out of a post-All Star break mini-funk, Erik Bedard gave them 6 2/3 innings in thin air of Colorado tonight, which turned out to be plenty good for an offense that finally showed some real life after a strange set of post-ASB games. I'm not sure I'd say Bedard is "back" based on his work tonight (four...
