Harris goes yard to make it 5-4 in the 5th.

On the first pitch in the 6th, Olson goes yard to tie the game and claim the single season Braves homerun record, with #52.

I was mainly watching the Ags and checking in on the Braves today. I didn't see the bullpen meltdown, but looked pretty rough in the box score. Need to get it all out of their system quick.

Any specific reasons they don't let Minter pitch more than one inning at a time? He's been lights out lately!

It started with Yates, who actually had two down in the 8th before it all unraveled.

Didn't wait for the bullpen to have a meltdown inning.

Morton getting destroyed in the 3rd. Gave up another grand slam to Chisom.

This has been a less than ideal road trip after clinching the division. Still plenty of time to get everything right before the playoffs.

Now Eddie takes a 97 mph fastball right on his arm. He is in obvious pain, but wanting to stay in the game.

Braves have bases loaded with a chance to get back in the game.

Been a long time since we had our butts kicked like this…

What a terrible series.

Is this the first series we've been swept all year? I don't even want to look up the answer.

I think we were outscored 38-8ish

Third time.

Astros and Bluejays were the other two, April and May.

Glad to be back in the W column. That was a miserable four game stretch.

Acuna one away from 40 HRs.

He just needs 1 HR and 3 stolen bases for the 40-70 season. He SHOULD make it.

Yea, gonna make this last stretch interesting for securing home field advantage.

But…when this team comes out of funk, they do so with a vengeance. Hoping that pays off in the postseason.

Morton left the game after one inning with a finger issue. Hope it's nothing serious.

This season has been a fun ride. This has been an amazing offense.

The MLB team HR record for a season is held by the 2019 Twins with 307. If my math is correct, the 2023 Braves have 299 with 6 games left in the regular season.

I was curious so I looked up the current Braves stats and noted where they stand in MLB rankings as of this morning. Below I listed the top 3 in each offensive category for our team. If a player was beyond 25th in the MLB I didn't check.

Runs
Acuna 143 (1st in MLB)
Olson 124 (4th in MLB)
Riley 112 (6th in MLB)

Hits
Acuna 210 (1st in MLB)
Riley 172 (7th in MLB)
Olson 166 (13th in MLB)

2B
Acuna 34 (23rd in MLB)
Harris 29
Riley 29

HR
Olson 53 (1st in MLB)
Acuna 40 (5th in MLB)
Riley 37 (8th in MLB)
Ozuna 36 (9th in MLB)
Albies 32 (18th in MLB)

RBI
Olson 133 (1st in MLB)
Albies 104 (7th in MLB)
Acuna 101 (10th in MLB)

BB
Olson 102 (3rd in MLB)
Acuna 78 (14th in MLB)
Riley 56

SB
Acuna 68 (1st in MLB)
Harris 20
Albies 13

Avg.
Acuna .336 (2nd in MLB)
Harris .289 (11th in MLB)
Riley .282 (19th in MLB)


Pitching categories of note (I didn't look at these too much):

ERA
Elder 3.63 (19th in MLB)
Morton 3.64 (20th in MLB)
Strider (25th in MLB)

Ks
Strider 274 (1st in MLB)

Wins

Elder 12 (18th in MLB)

What's crazy is it feels like Riley has had a quieter year...yet he is listed in several of those hitting categories!

I noticed those two 'Ol Ags sitting back there while Minter was pitching. I hope he gave them a Gig 'Em on his way off the field!

As a bit of a contrast, the leading Guardians OF in HRs has 5 and if you total up the three guys who have played the OF the most for them this year that total is only 11.

Acuna's accomplishments aside, the biggest wow to me is we have 5 of the top 18 HR hitters in the entire league. That's just jaw dropping.

I am also impressed that we have someone in the top 3 of MLB in almost every offensive category. And we have the #1 in 5 of the categories.

How about this crazy stat...

Take away all of Olson's league leading 53 homeruns this year and the Braves would still lead the MLB in homeruns as a team.
