A rough day for news in Braves country, with a frustrating loss and an injury
The Braves lost again on Wednesday, as they lost their second straight series and have had a rough week of form for once, in the midst of a 3+ month long tear for the Atlanta club. The good news is that the Mets have also been stumbling, arguably even worse than Atlanta, as they were just swept by the Cubs, leaving the Braves at 0.5 games behind the Mets, with the teams tied in the loss column. With a series still yet to be played between the NL East rivals (in Atlanta), this divisional race seems like it might run right up to the end of the season.
Ian Anderson strained his oblique and will miss a month, likely ending his 2022 season, which has been pretty disappointing.
