Braves Quote For The Day ... The Comeback Kids, Part Deux

David O'Brien gives us a snapshot of how this year's Atlanta Braves team has fared in the early and late innings; and he finds some similarities to last year's club:

They made a habit of pulling out late-innings wins last season, and the Braves are hitting this season like they have designs on a similar modus operandi.

To wit, through four games they have hit .195 with a .322 slugging percentage, two home runs and six RBIs in the first through sixth innings, and .333 with a .569 slugging percentage, three homers and 10 RBIs in the seventh inning and later.

The Braves have the same number of hits (11) in the seventh inning and later (11) as they have in the first six innings.

I don't know if my nerves can handle another season of so many close ballgames. I'll say this for the Braves, they are certainly an exciting team to watch ... oh, and never leave a game early.

If you'd like to read more about last year's 25 come-from-behind wins which led all of baseball, there's still a chance to get the Maple Street Press Atlanta Braves Annual, which contains a great article by Danny Hong (royhobbs) recapping all 25 dramatic wins. Order you copy online here.
