Great performances from Dallas Keuchel and the Braves bullpen made a 5-0 lead hold up as Atlanta took yet another game at Wrigley. Homers by Nick Markakis and Brian McCann aided those efforts considerably as the offense continues to produce at an incredible level this month.
The veteran Braves backstop is getting plenty of support from everyone associated with the organization, including Freddie Freeman:
“He’s been unbelievable back there,” Freeman said of McCann. “Every game he plays, he’s doing something special out there. So, I think if we can get BMac back to the All-Star Game, that will be the most satisfying [selection].”
A little something for the ATLiens among us.
The Braves may potentially see a familiar face at Wrigley Field on Thursday.
The injuries keep piling up for Giancarlo Stanton, and that contract is looking worse by the day.
