Before we get to Braves Kyle Wright vs. Astros Framber Valdez, I just wanted to say sorry, Braves Journalers. Last night was my fault. I was the curse. Jesse Chavez had been brilliant in 2023, but in a matter of minutes, said brilliance vanished and in the blink of an eye, the Astros scored 3 runs and Jesse recorded 0 outs. Still, there were opportunities, but the Braves didn’t cash in and Yordan Alvarez is an absolute monster. Let’s also not forget that the Astros are quite good.

On paper tonight’s game looks like an uphill battle as Framber Valdez has been the opposite of bad this year and is carrying a 1.80 ERA. Kyle Wright looked much better his 2nd go around in the rotation and his pitches are darting all over the place. Hopefully, those pitches dart all over the place, but end up crossing the zone.

The Braves will be in their City Connect Uniforms again tonight and here’s the lineup:

I just don’t get it…and probably never will.
