Braves are in striking distance for both the NL East and the Wildcard

Tomahawk Take Editor’s Note The Atlanta Braves defeated the Washington Nationals on Saturday afternoon and IT WAS AMAZING!! Anytime the Nats lose it’s great, but by the Braves is icing on the cake! ... -c-23.html The offense showed up against Stephen Strasburg in a big way…seven hits, six runs three earned in three innings pitched. Strasburg didn’t record a strikeout for the first time since May 29, 2015 against the Reds. The strikeout king was shutout!
The Braves improved to 42 44 on the 2017 season and the Nats fall to 51 36. As we head into the All Star game, the Braves are in striking distance for both the NL East and the Wildcard. Atlanta’s hitters are hitting, our bullpen is holding up the majority of times and the starting pitching seems pretty strong right now.

It’s a fun time to be a Braves fan! After those awful years, we’ve begun to turn the corner!

Braves WIN 13 0
Tomahawk Take Editor’s Note The amazing comeback of Sean Rodriguez continues to develop. The 32 year old is on pace to return to the major leagues by the end of July. That’s six months after that horrible accident and sustained extensive damage to his left shoulder, labrum damage ... -c-24.html, and a dislocated bicep tendon.

Could you imagine? Rodriguez must be able to heal extremely quickly or the Braves have some magic doctors.

He’ll play today with Gwinnett and then on Monday through Wednesday with the Mississippi Braves. After that, he’ll most likely stay with Mississippi or move back up to Gwinnett. On Saturday, he went 1 3 with a walk. He started at second base and third in the lineup.

It will probably take ... -c-22.html Rodriguez a few more weeks until he’s fully healthy and ready to come back to Atlanta. But the news of him returning by the end of the month is just unreal!
Rodriguez said hitting and throwing feel pretty normal. It’s taking some to get used to his bionic shoulder, and he said it has definitely been the hardest injury to come back from in his career. He had a single in his first game back at the Gulf Coast League, and on Friday he had a sacrifice fly for an RBI with the G Braves. He said he feels as strong as ever.

The mental recovery has been tough, as well, but it’s something Rodriguez and his family are doing together.

“It’s been a grind. But I feel like that’s natural. You wake up, trying to grind out , each day trying to make the most out of each day. This obviously added a few more hurdles, some high ones to obviously climb Eric O'Flaherty Jersey,” he said. “You just keep setting your feet down firm, take another step and keep moving forward. That’s how me and my wife have always viewed it and that’s what we keep doing.”
