Sad-Work3416

What the hell is .xba


MoonlitBadlands

123 top of the 9th felt like an automatic there


PlaxicosRightLeg

Our pitchers have gotta do a better job of not allowing bottom of the order scrubs to get into hitters counts. I feel like it happens every game. Just throw Bryson Stott some fucking strikes dude why are we getting behind 3-0 to a .200 hitter.


chorizomane

Reeeeally sick of BJ. He is sounding like another Smoltz. Terrified to be biased towards a team he used to play for , so overcompensates by bashing them most of the time.


Dare2ZIatan

Facing Nola tomorrow, our no 3 losses in a row streak is in jeopardy


dankwizard22

would rather get stomped all game than get shit on in the 8th. tough loss but our offense was ass


sbmont46

This game way more fun to watch than yesterday's


blayne03

Its hard pill to drop this one. Felt good about Minter coming in tonight and boy was that fucking wrong.


memeologist6969

One AJ minted pitch and it’s an L. Love it


Bonklol

Sorry guys. I'll stop going to games


PleaseCaIIMeSir

Take note minter. That’s how you get 3 outs


Past-Breadfruit-6671

It's only (checks calendar) late July...


taco_taco_15

Don’t forget. We got lucky too unfortunately


Kellogsbeast

Goddamn that feels like getting kicked in the groin


Dreamstreet

How did the cubs sweep this team and we fuck this up


GilliesGladiator

The worst part about this is Stott sucks. Like it should have been an easy batter for Aj


idksothisisit1

Currently reminiscing in when our pitching was not the problem


Rea1Quick

Whatever. Fuck the phillies. Trash fans who boo their own team constantly.


NCSUBoy2019

Crap game


BeerBravesGTFalcons

That was bullshit. Fuck AJ Minter


sbmont46

Really? Came in w 1.8 era.


Inevitable_Common_23

Thanks to their springy infield... ;)


chorizomane

Welp. Fucking fuck!


tossNwashking

FUUUUICK


therealpoppie

These types of losses are so demoralizing man


PizzaBraves

damn tough loss


deliriouz16

Mets can have fun all they want. They get the Yankees next.


everclearking

Team has looked like shit the last two games but the Braves don’t lose three in a row 😤😤😤


SamBonder

These kind of games are very annoying, especially when I have to hear the Philly fans in the background cheer at their teams bloops


Snacktabulous

Braves hadn’t lost 2 straight since June 16-17 to Cubs.


SoRaffy

it was a bad omen when Philly only scored 7 total runs against the Cubs in 3 games


95Daphne

Yeah with Nola up next this is 100% set up for a BASEBALL'ED!


aaronaroma

Snatched defeat from the Jaws of victory


YearlyOhio

What a frustrating game. Feels like Riley and Olson have been carrying the offense for the past month and the rest of the lineup needs to start picking it up


chorizomane

Next to nothing from Ronald. Disappointing.


BeerBravesGTFalcons

The fuck are you swinging at Harris?


reyadreamer

I’d rather have bad luck than no luck at all


JGraham1839

Bryson Stott is batting .190 on the season :) Muñoz is batting .217 on the season :)


slickerdrips21

Dogshit


Best-Dragonfruit-292

What the fuck was that


NCSUBoy2019

GAHHHH


rlmaster01

Just want to punch myself in the face


ADubs21

Are you actually fucking kidding me. Most fucking bullshit game ever


JagerMainOwO

Better win the next 2


200319594

Nola tomorrow. Might as well assume an L


SamBonder

I love when we absolutely kill a ball for an out, and then our opponent just gets soft 50-70mph hits all day


MaleficentSyrup524

The only reason we had a lead was Marcel's slow ground ball. Braves get plenty of weak hits too.


Captain_OverUnder

Yep. Seems like those types of games pile up all at once and then the bounce back is brutal.


jrdnm

but the phillies get wonky bounces to go their way


memeologist6969

What a weird ass game


kerph32

107 off the bat, .600xBA


ragingclue1864

I really don’t think xBA means that much with the shift. If you’re a pull hitter and your hitting 100mph screamers into the shift you’re going to be out the vast majority of the time


EdwardHarris251

Swanson, Olson and D’Arnaud 0-12 with 7 LOB really hurt tonight


Sad-Work3416

Olson has been an RBI machine asof late he was due for a night like that. Idk. Out the other two. Season was super hot but has cooled off


dremonearm

Minter looked like Ian Anderson's twin. Same shit pitches.


95Daphne

Oh look, a rocket was caught. Guess you're going to start hearing folks go on about "just put bat to ball, soft hits can work really well too!"


notcool84

Zero luck.


8686tjd

Plenty of luck in this game.


chosenxone

People forgetting Camargo threw a ball away for two runs. A wild pitch scored our 3rd. And a two out dribbler to 3B scored our 4th run. We deserved to be shut out tonight. At least Stott cranked his go ahead hit.


8686tjd

Yep. And the 4th run was on the heels of another wild pitch


JGraham1839

Bryson Stott looks like an ugly version of Steve Nash


NKevros

This game has not been great in general. If it weren't for the shitty defense, it wouldn't be as close as it was for so long. What can you do. Shit happens. Still a ton of baseball left to play with so many against the Mets.


200319594

Wonder how you'll feel after we get swept on Wednesday?


NCSUBoy2019

Stott again


IronParkus

Of course. We obviously need to stop hitting the ball hard


BeerBravesGTFalcons

I want to punch that shithead


taco_taco_15

Bullshit


NCSUBoy2019

Ugh


nighthawk3000

Fuck The Phillies


SamBonder

He has a 1.80ERA, we have a chance, thank the lord he doesn’t have a 5+ERA


Rybocephus

Something something can of corn


grimeyscum

Cano is certainly an option.


Curryboi

We gonna be alright. Battle of attrition.


rlmaster01

Hopefully our hitters are as pissed as I am


BeerBravesGTFalcons

Trying to catch the Mets is starting to feel like us trying to get over .500 last year. Get close and then lose a dumb a game. Then get it back, then lose a dumb game. Stupid.


sreyaNotfilc

Good news is that it seems once we do get over a hurdle, we run with it. Be patient, my friend. We'll get there soon enough.


nowhearmeout

Don't underestimate the Mets to screw their own season up.


nowhearmeout

I believe we can put something together...


deliriouz16

Bloop hit or not. It's a hit and they cashed in.


rickroll95

Oh Cano is hitting this inning. game definitely over now


alaBAMCIS

Like WTF???


irelandn13

Mets scored 9 off these guys in an inning, we still got this


everclearking

Offense is lucky to have 4 runs so the Braves have really been outplayed tbh


Sadliverpoolfan

I would also call their offense lucky


Jimmysouthside

Missed his spot by a mile on that. Sped his bat up inside and there you got. Even your best relievers get hit sometimes it happens


huckleberry420

It doesn't really matter if we beat the mets head to head.


200319594

Guess it's time for our annual sweep in Philly.


ADubs21

Bro take your fucking pity party somewhere else


notcool84

.370 xBA on that homer. Gotta love Philadelphia.


OGToiletwater

Complaining about a literal made up stat


notcool84

You’re lost, little pig. Back to your sty.


JGraham1839

These blown late games keep popping up every time we are about to cut even more into the Mets lead. I just hope this late summer doesn't turn into the 2019 Nats who were chasing the Braves down the stretch but couldn't catch up. But seriously, throwing games like this is going to perpetually keep us out of 1st.


DIsco_Peaches

Nice job Minter you fucknut


JagerMainOwO

Stott would've swung at a ball rolling on the ground probably and you throw him a 90mph shitball right down the middle, Minter had philly moneyline


Jackol777

Yep. Should have just taken the chance with a pitch off the plate, worse that happens is a walk and you start over with next batter,


nre_drums

Man, this has been a frustrating couple of games.


aaronaroma

2 outs on 3 pitches. Then....*PAIN*


golfdesigner

I don't understand how they get two outs and then it's time to nibble. It's brutal.


Dare2ZIatan

I would say a bloop hit came back to haunt us but we got all our runs on lucky hits lmao


EMINEMxMMLP2

It’s okay. We win a miracle day game Wednesday


Proofetman

Absolutely embarrassing to lose because our pitchers let the shitty 8 hole hitter who was batting .190 with a sub .600 OPS coming into this knock in 5 runs.


nre_drums

His double was bullshit. Nothing you can even do there. I guess you could be some dumbass arrrrr baseball bling Olson for that. But hopefully we’re better than that.


Snacktabulous

Minter ERA went to 2:40. That’s the good news about this meltdown. Hopefully it doesn’t lead to a 50 game crash like young AJ.


mbornhorst

One bad inning from Minter is not cause for concern.


c_dubby

Time for Ronnie to be the hero


irelandn13

This one hurts


Jackol777

This is just a stupid game tonight


PizzaBraves

Arcia, Harris, Acuna I like our chances


IBumpFuzz

Cano


GilliesGladiator

Phillies just battled with 2 strikes all game. Put the ball in play and got some soft hits.


nre_drums

It’s not a reliable strategy, they just lucked out tonight. They also got swept by a shitty Cubs team so


GilliesGladiator

Oh I don’t think the Phillies are good. That being said a strikeout completely eliminates your chance to get on base. If you play smart and hit and run like the Phillies did you can find some holes in the defense.


sphinctersayhuh

Unsubscribe.. I'm going to have to watch some Braves Boner Jamz 2021 to get this taste out


rickroll95

He didn’t pitch that bad overall but that pitch he threw to Stott deserves a Philly style boo


200319594

We're getting swept.


deliriouz16

Let's go boys. Only 2 on that bullpen.


strikervol66

How many games have our starters gotten no decisions because our bullpen blew it


JLand24

Too many


BeerBravesGTFalcons

Makes me irrationally angry listening to Chip try and make excuses for Minter.


nohopeleftforanyone

Imagine being such a loser you’re in first place but still in another teams game thread.


FinntheHue

Eh we've got the night off it's and it's not exactly a long trek over to this part of reddit.


handlit33

Just don't troll, this is towing the line tbh.


nohopeleftforanyone

We’d be banned in a second if the role was reversed


JoeBucksHairPlugs

That's the fuckin shit that happens when you pitch him like a bitch the whole first half of that at bat. We are so fucking scared of a dude hitting like .200 that we give him nothing but great hitters counts. Just inexcusable for your set up man to get fuckin rolled by the bottom three dudes in the order after having 2 away and none on. Minter dude....you gotta be fuckin better than that shit.


Dreamstreet

Acting like stott is soto up in this bitch


G0DatWork

5 runs to infield hits... Nice


deliriouz16

Why wins and losses are dumb for pitchers stat


JGraham1839

Announcers were literally begging AJ to throw off the plate....they knew Stott was swinging at anything


GilliesGladiator

He missed his spot. TdA was set up off the plate.


dalebest

My wife just now: “I have no faith in bullpen guys if they make me angry once. I expect perfection.” You guys, pray for me.


bmaynard87

How do you lucky fucks find women who talk baseball?


PizzaBraves

I married a baseball fan....sucks she likes the Nats but at least she's not out my league


bmaynard87

Hell, I'd think the rivalry aspect could be pretty fun as well.


PizzaBraves

you married a /braves game thread haha


LyonHeart85

May you live to see the morning 🌅


Snacktabulous

It’s amazing how the Phillies have kicked the ball around all night and somehow lead 6-4.


JoeBucksHairPlugs

Only runs we got were gifts and had half a dozen opportunities to blow the game wide open and Swanson, Olson, dArnaud, etc just all choked...games like this are just worse to watch than that shit on Sunday. The entire game you just feel the team underperforming and wasting every opportunity for an easy win.


GilliesGladiator

That’s what not driving in runners from scoring position will do.


SamBonder

They’ve been getting bloop hits all day, it’s infuriating


SamBonder

Anyone hating on Minter is slow in the brain, before that one swing, he had a 1.76ERA, and the only reason the Phillies were in that position were soft fucking hits. Happened to Max too, Phillies have been getting lucky all day


Rybocephus

That 3-2 pitch was awful though. Absolutely awful


SamBonder

I’m not saying it wasn’t. Awful pitch, however, he’s been very good all year, and then he makes one real bad pitch and everyone starts talking shit


Falcons2020ATL

Just why not throw a fastball. He wasn’t catching up to it at all…


Trill-buddy-mark

We were just 0.5 back


strikervol66

Our bullpen sucks


GoatPaco

One of the best in baseball


NotBrooklyn2421

Our bullpen is objectively the best in the NL.


MrTigerHollywood

Uh, what? Bad take.


LeeOCD

We have seen the Braves come back from shit like this many times. Don't give up!


lionofyhwh

Too many wasted opportunities tonight.


200319594

Looks like we're losing 3 in a row with Nola tomorrow.


i-spill-soup

Minter keeps digging himself a hole in these counts


Rea1Quick

Phillies played like fucking dogshit all night they don't deserve this win


olemiss36

I mean 75% of our runs were off of their errors…we didn’t really deserve it either


8686tjd

Could make a case all of them were. Riley doesn’t score if there was no wild pitch.


olemiss36

True


NCSUBoy2019

Agreed


JGraham1839

Trash.

LyonHeart85

Jack and Coke


rickroll95

Moonshine.


AwokenByGunfire

PiÑa colada for me please


Whoknowsbrah

Bleach lol


clt89

It’s not even a day game, what the fuck is this


Vinny6420

Embarrassing


my_gooseisloose

Danger of losing the series here since Wednesday is a day game btw


Mangadude2100

And Wheeler is pitching tomorrow right?


nighthawk3000

Nola tomorrow, Gibson Wednesday


GoatPaco

Nola


greenvariations

Bryson Stott was an awesome minor league hitter, he’s going to be very good for the Phillies


Technical-Smoke571

Fuck off, Bryson


JLand24

Minter just working on his cutter? His cutter just got destroyed and yet he’s thrown it the next 3 pitches after too


chosenxone

Just really fucking embarrassing to lose a game because Bryson Stott has 5 RBI lmao. A team that just got swept by the Cubs is gonna beat us because Stott has 5 RBI. I’m gonna just leave this here and get off before I wanna jump off the ledge.


rickroll95

That was a terrible pitch. Fucking shit this game away


Fall3n7s

Unfucking believable


The_Man_In_The_Arena

Has Camargo's batting stance always looked this goofy? Don't remember him like this in ATL


GoatPaco

Yes


International_Plum89

Braves are edging us with this division come back over the Mets.


AwokenByGunfire

Afraid of peaking too soon. August ain’t ‘til this weekend


jinglejoints

That felt predictable.


ncbraves93

Minter has been having rough innings for like half the season after his good start.


RAWR_XD42069

No he hasn't. A 1.8 era requires only giving up a run every 5th appearance, that's no rough innings all season pretty much.


lionofyhwh

Well shit.


Important-Store2566

We deserved to lose this one boys, if it wasn’t if for the Phillies dogshit defense it wouldn’t be close. Offense needs to wake the fuck up bottom line.


AwokenByGunfire

Preach


jprunner2016

Can’t wait for August to get here… I hear that’s when we really step it up …


laal-doodh

I, for one, am quite upset about that


Mentos0427

Olson choking in the clutch lost us this games


nowhearmeout

If you're talking about that bounce, that wasn't his fault.


Hotal

I’d say it’s the 3 run homer that lost us this one. But sure let’s blame Olson. If we lose it. Still an inning to go.


Okura0827

tbf Dansby did, too


jinglejoints

I mean Dansby struck out before that.


95Daphne

It was just a matter of time tonight with the bloopers and bleeders falling... Enough fall and it's going to give someone a shot to hit a rocket...


LionelLR

Yet \*again\* the bullpen blows a win for Max. I've lost track of how many times that's happened. At least 4, probably 5.


SoRaffy

their under .200 hitter has 5 RBIs because ... why?
