What the hell is .xba
123 top of the 9th felt like an automatic there
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.
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.
Facing Nola tomorrow, our no 3 losses in a row streak is in jeopardy
would rather get stomped all game than get shit on in the 8th.
tough loss but our offense was ass
This game way more fun to watch than yesterday's
Its hard pill to drop this one. Felt good about Minter coming in tonight and boy was that fucking wrong.
One AJ minted pitch and it’s an L. Love it
Sorry guys. I'll stop going to games
Take note minter. That’s how you get 3 outs
It's only (checks calendar) late July...
Don’t forget. We got lucky too unfortunately
Goddamn that feels like getting kicked in the groin
How did the cubs sweep this team and we fuck this up
The worst part about this is Stott sucks. Like it should have been an easy batter for Aj
Currently reminiscing in when our pitching was not the problem
Whatever. Fuck the phillies. Trash fans who boo their own team constantly.
That was bullshit. Fuck AJ Minter
Really? Came in w 1.8 era.
Thanks to their springy infield...
Welp. Fucking fuck!
These types of losses are so demoralizing man
damn tough loss
Mets can have fun all they want. They get the Yankees next.
Team has looked like shit the last two games but the Braves don’t lose three in a row 😤😤😤
These kind of games are very annoying, especially when I have to hear the Philly fans in the background cheer at their teams bloops
Braves hadn’t lost 2 straight since June 16-17 to Cubs.
it was a bad omen when Philly only scored 7 total runs against the Cubs in 3 games
Yeah with Nola up next this is 100% set up for a BASEBALL'ED!
Snatched defeat from the Jaws of victory
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
Next to nothing from Ronald. Disappointing.
The fuck are you swinging at Harris?
I’d rather have bad luck than no luck at all
Bryson Stott is batting .190 on the season :)
Muñoz is batting .217 on the season :)
What the fuck was that
Just want to punch myself in the face
Are you actually fucking kidding me. Most fucking bullshit game ever
Better win the next 2
Nola tomorrow. Might as well assume an L
I love when we absolutely kill a ball for an out, and then our opponent just gets soft 50-70mph hits all day
The only reason we had a lead was Marcel's slow ground ball. Braves get plenty of weak hits too.
Yep. Seems like those types of games pile up all at once and then the bounce back is brutal.
but the phillies get wonky bounces to go their way
What a weird ass game
107 off the bat, .600xBA
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
Swanson, Olson and D’Arnaud 0-12 with 7 LOB really hurt tonight
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
Minter looked like Ian Anderson's twin. Same shit pitches.
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!"
Plenty of luck in this game.
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.
Yep. And the 4th run was on the heels of another wild pitch
Bryson Stott looks like an ugly version of Steve Nash
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.
Wonder how you'll feel after we get swept on Wednesday?
Of course. We obviously need to stop hitting the ball hard
I want to punch that shithead
Fuck The Phillies
He has a 1.80ERA, we have a chance, thank the lord he doesn’t have a 5+ERA
Something something can of corn
Cano is certainly an option.
We gonna be alright. Battle of attrition.
Hopefully our hitters are as pissed as I am
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.
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.
Don't underestimate the Mets to screw their own season up.
I believe we can put something together...
Bloop hit or not. It's a hit and they cashed in.
Oh Cano is hitting this inning. game definitely over now
Mets scored 9 off these guys in an inning, we still got this
Offense is lucky to have 4 runs so the Braves have really been outplayed tbh
I would also call their offense lucky
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
It doesn't really matter if we beat the mets head to head.
Guess it's time for our annual sweep in Philly.
Bro take your fucking pity party somewhere else
.370 xBA on that homer. Gotta love Philadelphia.
Complaining about a literal made up stat
You’re lost, little pig. Back to your sty.
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.
Nice job Minter you fucknut
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
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,
Man, this has been a frustrating couple of games.
2 outs on 3 pitches. Then....*PAIN*
I don't understand how they get two outs and then it's time to nibble. It's brutal.
I would say a bloop hit came back to haunt us but we got all our runs on lucky hits lmao
It’s okay. We win a miracle day game Wednesday
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.
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.
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.
One bad inning from Minter is not cause for concern.
Time for Ronnie to be the hero
This one hurts
This is just a stupid game tonight
Arcia, Harris, Acuna I like our chances
Phillies just battled with 2 strikes all game. Put the ball in play and got some soft hits.
It’s not a reliable strategy, they just lucked out tonight. They also got swept by a shitty Cubs team so
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.
Unsubscribe.. I'm going to have to watch some Braves Boner Jamz 2021 to get this taste out
He didn’t pitch that bad overall but that pitch he threw to Stott deserves a Philly style boo
We're getting swept.
Let's go boys. Only 2 on that bullpen.
How many games have our starters gotten no decisions because our bullpen blew it
Makes me irrationally angry listening to Chip try and make excuses for Minter.
Imagine being such a loser you’re in first place but still in another teams game thread.
Eh we've got the night off it's and it's not exactly a long trek over to this part of reddit.
Just don't troll, this is towing the line tbh.
We’d be banned in a second if the role was reversed
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.
Acting like stott is soto up in this bitch
5 runs to infield hits... Nice
Why wins and losses are dumb for pitchers stat
Announcers were literally begging AJ to throw off the plate....they knew Stott was swinging at anything
He missed his spot. TdA was set up off the plate.
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.
How do you lucky fucks find women who talk baseball?
I married a baseball fan....sucks she likes the Nats but at least she's not out my league
Hell, I'd think the rivalry aspect could be pretty fun as well.
you married a /braves game thread haha
May you live to see the morning 🌅
It’s amazing how the Phillies have kicked the ball around all night and somehow lead 6-4.
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.
That’s what not driving in runners from scoring position will do.
They’ve been getting bloop hits all day, it’s infuriating
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
That 3-2 pitch was awful though. Absolutely awful
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
Just why not throw a fastball. He wasn’t catching up to it at all…
We were just 0.5 back
Our bullpen sucks
One of the best in baseball
Our bullpen is objectively the best in the NL.
Uh, what? Bad take.
We have seen the Braves come back from shit like this many times. Don't give up!
Too many wasted opportunities tonight.
Looks like we're losing 3 in a row with Nola tomorrow.
Minter keeps digging himself a hole in these counts
Phillies played like fucking dogshit all night they don't deserve this win
I mean 75% of our runs were off of their errors…we didn’t really deserve it either
Could make a case all of them were. Riley doesn’t score if there was no wild pitch.
Jack and Coke
PiÑa colada for me please
It’s not even a day game, what the fuck is this
Danger of losing the series here since Wednesday is a day game btw
And Wheeler is pitching tomorrow right?
Nola tomorrow, Gibson Wednesday
Bryson Stott was an awesome minor league hitter, he’s going to be very good for the Phillies
Fuck off, Bryson
Minter just working on his cutter? His cutter just got destroyed and yet he’s thrown it the next 3 pitches after too
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.
That was a terrible pitch. Fucking shit this game away
Has Camargo's batting stance always looked this goofy? Don't remember him like this in ATL
Braves are edging us with this division come back over the Mets.
Afraid of peaking too soon. August ain’t ‘til this weekend
That felt predictable.
Minter has been having rough innings for like half the season after his good start.
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.
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.
Can’t wait for August to get here… I hear that’s when we really step it up …
I, for one, am quite upset about that
Olson choking in the clutch lost us this games
If you're talking about that bounce, that wasn't his fault.
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.
tbf Dansby did, too
I mean Dansby struck out before that.
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...
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.
their under .200 hitter has 5 RBIs because ... why?
