  • Newcomb counters Freeland in rematch
    Braves left-hander Sean Newcomb will attempt to rebound when he faces the Rockies at 7:35 p.m. ET tonight. Newcomb allowed a season-high 12 hits and lasted just four innings before Atlanta's offense picked him up in Sunday's win over the Brewers. Colorado will counter with Kyle Freeland, who has a 2.26 ERA over his past 11 starts. These pitchers faced each other on April 8, with Newcomb the victor thanks to six scoreless innings.
  • Here's why Acuna-Soto ROTY chase is historic
    We've seen great rookies. Plenty of them in recent years, in fact. We've seen great young players. We've seen great Rookie of the Year Award races. But if Juan Soto and Ronald Acuna Jr. keep doing what they're doing, well, we've never seen anything quite like it.
  • Braves lose late lead to spoil Teheran's start
    Though the Braves fortified their bullpen with a couple of non-waiver Trade Deadline acquisitions, the youth and lack of quality depth within their relief corps could continue to be a detriment during their attempt to secure a postseason berth.
  • Acuna singles in return; Urena suspended
    Ronald Acuna Jr. singled during his first-inning at-bat against Jon Gray and stole second base before going hitless in his final three at-bats, ending his bid to become the first player in Braves franchise history to homer in six straight games.

    The marvel of the 30-30 club is predicated on the rare combination of speed and power it takes to swipe 30 bases and bash 30 homers in the same season.
  • Acuna drilled by pitch, later exits; benches clear
    Braves outfielder Ronald Acuna Jr.'s bid for yet another leadoff homer instantly evaporated as Marlins right-hander Jose Urena hit him with a first-pitch fastball, creating a couple of benches-clearing confrontations during the first inning of Wednesday night's game at SunTrust Park.
  • Swanson homers in Braves' sweep of Marlins
    Dansby Swanson went deep and drove in a game-high three runs as the Braves completed the four-game series sweep. When Marlins starter Jose Urena hit Ronald Acuna Jr. with a first-pitch fastball, the benches cleared twice. Urena and Braves manager Brian Snitker were ejected. Starlin Castro homered off Kevin Gausman, who went six innings.
  • Acuna HBP sparks strong reaction around MLB
    Braves rookie sensation Ronald Acuna Jr. had hit eight homers in his last eight games, including five straight with a homer and three straight with a leadoff homer. But he didn't get a chance to extend that hot streak on Wednesday after Marlins pitcher Jose Urena hit him in the elbow with a 97.5-mph fastball on his first pitch.
  • Acuna's plunking isn't what baseball needs
    Jose Urena hit a Major League-leading 14 batters last season. Before the Marlins' right-hander threw his first -- and, well, only -- pitch on Wednesday night, he had already hit 10 of the 541 batters he had faced in this 2018 season. So it's statistically conceivable the pitch that hit Ronald Acuna Jr. to open the bottom of the first inning at Sun Trust Park was one that just got away from Urena. An accident. Unless, of course, you actually watched the game.
  • Toussaint, Fried could rejoin 6-man rotation
    Touki Toussaint is a little more than a week away from returning to the Majors and Max Fried has recovered sooner than expected, so the Braves will have the option to resume using a six-man rotation next week.

  • This is how the Braves got so good so fast
    The Red Sox went from last place in the American League East in 2015 to first place in 2016, and they haven't looked back since.

  • Sizzling Acuna makes history in Braves' victory
    Ronald Acuna Jr. hit two of the Braves' four homers to clinch the series against the Marlins. Acuna, who has homered in five straight games to become the youngest player in MLB history to do so, and Charlie Culberson went deep on the first two pitches of the game. Freddie Freeman added a game-tying shot in the sixth. J.T. Realmuto homered and drove in four for the Marlins.
