Poor Erick Fedde. If the Braves didn’t exist, he’d be so much better. For the year, he’s given up 11 runs on 15 hits in 8.1 innings. Unfortunately, his career numbers aren’t much better and 1-9, the Braves lineup turns into the 2018 version of Mike Trout, spanking his bottom to the tune of a 1.101 OPS and, for Fedde, an 11.03 ERA in 10 career games. If the Braves didn’t exist, his career ERA would drop over 1/2 a run.

Sometimes we fans seem to forget that Charlie Morton broke his leg, rehabbed it all offseason, and likely wasn’t fully healthy at the beginning of the year. But, boy oh boy, we’ve had the full Uncle Charlie experience for a month now and it’s been downright delicious. In his last 5 starts, Morton is carrying a 1.60 ERA with 42 Ks to 8 walks over 33.2 IP. He’s back, folks.

The offense stayed blistering hot, scoring 12 runs on 15 hits. Eddie Rosario was the only player in the starting lineup without a hit.

Matt Olson‘s OPS bottomed out on June 18 at .777. In the 19 games since, Olson’s carried a 1.001 OPS with 9 doubles and 5 HRs. Here’s his moonshot from last night.

Acuña broke a 10-game homerless streak last night and from this video, I think it had been weighing on him. I’m expecting a monstrous 9-game stretch from him before entering the All-Star break.

Lastly, but definitely not leastly, Michael Harris II is an absolute monster. How is it that a player is promoted straight from AA carrying a good, but not great, OPS, and becomes, what is likely, the best CFer in the National League? Harris went 4-4 last night and might’ve killed someone with this rocket.

The Braves are 50-35, 2.5 games back from the Mets, and on pace for 95 wins. With 9 games before the ASB, 6 against the Nats and 3 against the Mets, odds are pretty good that the division is grabbed just in time for Mets and their fans to feel doooooooooomed for 4 days before baseball starts back. Wouldn’t it be nice?
