Braves quotes after Tuesday loss to Phillies | Atlanta Braves
Chipper Jones, on losing six of nine and seven of 11: "We’re falling behind early, and we’ve got a couple of guys at the top of our lineup who are scuffling a little bit. When the top scuffles a little bit, you struggle to score runs. You get behind early, you put some pressure on yourselves. "It just seemed like they, for the most part, when they got hits they got three or four right there in a row to throw a crooked number up on us. Case in point, the first inning. Two quick outs, and then four base hits and we’re down two. And they did it again a time or two. Give them an inch and they’re going to take a mile."

Salazar returns to Braves' dugout | News
On Tuesday, six months after nearly losing his life, Luis Salazar returned to the Major League scene with the same upbeat personality that has served as an inspiration to many members of the Braves organization this year.

Braves believe Beachy's ascent will continue  |
Three years ago, Brandon Beachy was mowing grass at a Virginia vineyard in the morning and pitching for the Woodstock (Va.) River Bandits of the Valley Baseball League at night. He had gone undrafted out of Indiana Wesleyan.

Forget the Phillies. The Braves' chief target is now Milwaukee | Mark Bradley
For the Braves, four regular-season dates with Philadelphia remain. They don’t matter. Nothing that happens now will have any impact on October. There’s no "psychological advantage" to be gained by either side — this is baseball, where everything starts anew the next day — and there’s no realistic way the Braves can catch the Phillies to claim the National League’s top seed. All the Braves can do these next three weeks is try to get healthy. And try to prepare themselves for Milwaukee. In October, the Brewers figure to come first.
