The hottest teams in baseball put on quite a show last night. I hope the daytime fireworks show is a little more one-sided today as the Braves take on Cincinnati in game two of this three game set. Graham Ashcraft vs. Jared Shuster at 4:10 local time.
Matt Olson homered twice last night, Travis d’Arnoud, added a three-run blast, and Ronald Acuna Jr. and Austin Riley also hit round-trippers for the Braves, who are 48-27. Rookie phenom, Elly De La Cruz, hit for the cycle for the Reds, Joey Votto homered twice, and Braves pitchers hit three batters in the 11-10 loss.
I hope Shuster got some sleep, doesn’t walk or hit anyone, and that the Braves bring the lumber today. How many innings will the starters last? And who do you think goes yard today at Great American Smallpark?
