The Braves are riding a very stupid three-game losing streak, with back-to-back walkoff losses after a Freddie Freeman barrel into the outfield was turned into an out by a center field.

Maybe tonight is the night that the dumb stuff abates, perhaps only momentarily, perhaps for a while. But the Braves will need that reprieve to hold on the division lead, because it’s really hard to win when your late-game barrels with men on become outs instead of extra-base hits.
