Another late bullpen implosion cost the Atlanta Braves in a 5-3 loss Saturday night to the Colorado Rockies. The Braves have now lost three straight and will look to avoid a four-game sweep on Sunday. A.J. Minter couldn’t close the game out in the ninth spoiling another splendid performance on the mound by Mike Foltynewicz. Here is what both Brian Snitker and Minter had to say following the game.
