    Braves Journal: Braves 3, Marlins 2 - Acuna Walks It Off

    Make it 15-4. That's Atlanta's record against Miami this year, and I bet the Marlins are ready to be done with us. And unfortunately for us, they are. At this point, you found dissatisfaction that even with our beleaguered offense, we couldn't put enough runs across to get Mike Soroka a win.

    Nonetheless, plenty to be happy about in regards to Soroka. He took a shutout into the 7th, giving up 2 runs on 3 straight hits, but finished strong to record the following line: 7 IP, 2 ER, 5 H, 0 BB, 5 K. The Braves also let him break 100 pitches for only the 5th time in 23 starts.

    Fansided: Better of late, Atlanta Braves bullpen has still been one of the worst this season

    The Atlanta Braves have gotten horrible production from their bullpen this season.

    Not only is that a bit negative, that's also a rather "no duh" statement, right? I don't think I've discovered anything new here. But that's OK, we already know the Atlanta Braves bullpen has struggled mightily in 2019 (though they've been much better of late).

    But just how bad?

    Well, on Thursday Craig Edwards posted a piece on FanGraphs illustrating how bullpens in the majors have performed this season. This is his second article regarding bullpens in two days, and both have been pretty eye-opening.

    Yahoo! Sports: Dodgers welcome Yankees for showdown of baseball's best

    The host Los Angeles Dodgers have the momentum, but the New York Yankees have the incentive when the two teams with the best records in baseball meet for the first time since 2016 in a three-game series that opens Friday night.

    Left-handers Hyun-Jin Ryu (12-3, 1.64 ERA) of the Dodgers and James Paxton (9-6, 4.53) of the Yankees are slated to duel in a rare regular-season head-to-head matchup of franchises that have met 11 times in the World Series, with New York prevailing on eight of those occasions.

    The Dodgers (85-44) have moved into the fast lane in their attempt to finish with the best record in the National League and thus clinch home-field advantage throughout the NL playoffs.

    Talking Chop: Braves Hope for Heavy Dosage of High Foltage to Overcome deGrom, Mets

    MLB

    After sweeping the franchise owned by Ronald Acuna Jr., the Atlanta Braves head north to "Freddie's Funhouse" to take on the franchise Freddie Freeman inherited ownership of from Chipper Jones earlier this decade. After splitting a series with the Marlins two weekends ago, Atlanta has responded with series wins of the Dodgers and these same Mets, along with the sweep over Miami. The funny thing about baseball is that you usually only get a night to enjoy success. The is especially true for the Braves, as they face a familiar and formidable opponent this Friday in the person of one Jacob deGrom.

    Fansided: Atlanta Braves Morning Chop: so you're telling me there's a chance

    The Atlanta Braves are hardly unique here. Every MLB team has to deal with injuries, no doubt, but it can often be that the key of weathering injuries involves when they happen... or at least when the player can return.

    Some prime examples of how bad timing works have just come up elsewhere:

    The day before, Red Sox ace Chris Sale informed reporters that he will be shut down for 6 weeks (basically the rest of the regular season) to allow his balky elbow to absorb a platelet-rich plasma shot.

    Fansided: Takeaways as Atlanta Braves and Ronald Acuna fry the Fish again

    With that said, let's take a look at the takeaways from the Atlanta Braves 3-2 win.

    3. Thursday was just the latest edition of the Braves owning the Marlins

    The season series with the Marlins is now over, and the final tally was the Braves winning the season 15-4. As you may have heard, this was the first time in 15 years the Braves have defeated a team 15 times in a season. The last being the Nationals in 2004 when they were the Expos.

    The bad part is I can think of one loss against the Marlins that never should have happened either.

    Yahoo! Sports: Mets aim to improve in NL East race vs. Braves

    For about a month, the focus for the New York Mets in terms of likely ways into the playoffs has been on a crowded National League wild-card race.

    This weekend if things go right, the Mets can make a small dent in the NL East race and they will get three chances to gain ground starting Friday when they host the Atlanta Braves for the opener of a three-game series.

    The Mets (67-60) are a major league-best 27-10 since the All-Star break and trail the Braves by nine games in the division. They are 1 1/2 games behind in the wild-card race after extending their winning streak to five games and improving to 13-1 in their last 14 home games with a 2-0 victory over the Cleveland Indians on Thursday night.

    Talking Chop: Atlanta Braves Minor League Recap: Johan Camargo and Drew Waters Propel Gwinnett to Win

    It was a good night for Bryse Wilson who continued his recent run of dominance at Gwinnett, giving up one earned run over six innings of work and helped propel the Stripers to their impressive 73rd win of the season and are now 1.5 games in first. Over his last five starts, Bryse Wilson has compiled a 0.55 ERA, and 0.85 WHIP during that stretch as well. Following Bryse was Tyler Matzek who gave up the other earned run in the game - a sacrifice fly to Cristian Pache. Corbin Clouse and Chad Sobotka finished out the game as they combined for 2.

    Talking Chop: Maximum Fried, Maximum Effort

    Max Fried is developing into a legitimate top-of-the-rotation arm, but is still seemingly underappreciated as he shares a clubhouse with superstars like Ronald Acuna Jr., Freddie Freeman, and Mike Soroka. With all the fanfare around those three talents, Fried has quietly produced 2.9 bWAR thus far in 2019, and has helped stabilize a rotation that has been in constant turmoil since Spring Training. Let's dive into what makes Fried successful, what his success means going forward, and why he can stop pinch-running for the rest of the season.

    When watching Max Fried, the first thing that stands out about the lanky left-hander is his wicked curveball.
