Found September 24, 2013 on Atlanta Bullpen:
Andrelton Simmons‘ walk off single lifted the Atlanta Braves over the Milwaukee Brewers, 3-2 on Tuesday night. Jonathan Lucroy, the Brewers catcher, continued his good series on Tuesday.  Lucroy singled home Norichika Aoki in the 3rd inning to put the Brewers on top. Evan Gattis tied the game up in the 4th inning.  Gattis doubled to deep center field in the 4th.  Freddie Freeman scored, but Gattis was thrown out at 3rd, as he tried advancing on the throw to the plate.  However, the game was tied 1-1. The Brewers grabbed the lead back, when Jeff Blanchi hit a solo home run off Freddy Garcia.  Blanci’s home run to left field came in the 5th inning. Freddie Freeman continued his MVP chase with another RBI in the 6th inning.  He singled to right field to once again tie the game up.  This time, the game was tied up at 2. Things stayed that way until the 9th inning.  After Craig Kimbrel pitched the top half of the 9th, the Braves had a chance to win it in the bottom of the inning.  With t...

Nothing to see here, just an Atlanta Braves fan fondling his gal’s breasts (video)

At least I hope that young lady is this grabby Atlanta Braves fan’s gal. Otherwise, that would make this already-inappropriate public display of grab-action that much more tasteless, crude and out of place. I mean this guy is shameless. He’s really going to town. I’m talking handfuls here, highlighted by some heavy massaging action. Gee […]The post Nothing to see here, just...

WATCH: Atlanta Braves make parody video of 'Blurred Lines'

When you have already clinched the division and there are still games to play things like this happen. The Atlanta Braves have a new video out, a parody of Robin Thicke’s hit song ‘Blurred Lines’ titled Baselines. In the video Aaron Chewning, a comedian from Atlanta, plays the role of Thicke. Of course the part that will catch the eyes of Brave fans is the awesome cameo of...

Carlos Gomez HR admiration ignites Braves-Brewers brawl (Video)

Milwaukee Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez ignited a bench clearing brawl with the Atlanta Braves in the first inning of Wednesday night's game at Turner Field when he took a bit too long to admire his home run before jogging the bases.

Carlos Gomez hit-by-pitch leads to bench-clearing altercation in Atlanta

Just two batters in, Wednesday night's game between the Milwaukee Brewers and the Atlanta Braves took a turn nobody saw coming. Brewers center fielder Carlos Gomez homered off Braves starter Paul Maholm and stood and admired his shot a bit too long. Looking to get back at Maholm for what he felt was an intentional plunking back in June, Gomez said a few words to the left-hander...

Braves Continue Lackluster Play

Evidently home field advantage in the playoffs doesn’t mean anything, ’cause the Atlanta Braves keep rolling out line-ups littered with substitutes. Monday night, in the 5-0 loss to the Brewers, the Braves had Brian McCann and Freddie Freeman sitting on the bench resting.  In a few weeks the season will be over, can’t they rest then? If the best record in the NL is meaningless...

Brewers' Kyle Lohse finishes his season with efficient shutout performance

Somehow, Kyle Lohse had to settle down after both benches and bullpens had cleared before he even took the mound Wednesday night. The veteran right-hander was not only able to restore order to the game, but he did so in impressive fashion. Making his final start of the season, Lohse became the first Brewers pitcher to record a shutout in under 90 pitches since 1992, two-hitting...

WATCH: Milwaukee's Carlos Gomez Causes Bench to Clear By Acting Like an Idiot

When the game is on the line and there has been a lot of back and forth all night long it is understandable if there is a little trash talk. Certain actions leading up to that point could build upon each other until finally someone pops and just lets loose. However, when the game has just started, and its only the first inning? Yeah, that's just stupid. In the first...

Brewers' Aramis Ramirez likely done for season

The Milwaukee Brewers lost Carlos Gomez during last night's brawl against the Atlanta Braves, as the center fielder was ejected. The scrum cost the Brewers another regular, as third baseman Aramis Ramirez aggravated his left knee injury. Considering the timing of the injury, it's like that Ramirez's season is over, according to Adam McCalvy of MLB.com. Ramirez couldn...

Brewers Carlos Gomez Starts Brawl With Braves After Pimping HR (Video)

  Thou shalt not pimp home runs. I think that’s what the rule concerning home-run hitting etiquette in baseball would look like if it were an actual rule. In baseball, players hate getting shown up; too much celebrating after doing something awesome is frowned upon in the game’s culture and so we have incidents like the one that took place on Wednesday night between the Atlanta...

Today in Sports History – John Jaha Steals

On this day in 1992, John Jaha of the Milwaukee Brewers tied a record of stealing 10 bases in 10 attempts. Just twelve days prior, he tied a Brewer franchise record by stealing four bases in a 5-0 win over the Baltimore Orioles.
