  • Saturday: Phillies 5 – Braves 0… The regularly scheduled game on Friday was rained out so on Saturday the Braves finally started the series on a less than stellar note as they gave up 4 runs in the fourth inning and then went on to lose 5-0 to the Phillies… In that inning there were two homeruns by the Phillies a solo shot by J.T. Realmuto and a 3-run homer by Jay Bruce proved to be the deciding blows… The Braves manages only 4 hits to the Phillies 8 in the game.
  • Sunday #1: Braves 5 – Phillies 2… Yesterday the two teams got together for a pair of 7 inning games (a new rule put in to help make up postponements in the Corona virus era) and in the first game the Braves rebounded from the loss the day before taking a 5-2 win outhitting the Phillies 5-2… It was the Braves turn to score a bunch of runs in one inning as they put all 5 of their runs on the board in the 5th inning…  In that big fifth inning Ronald Acuna Jr. had a 2 run homer and Adam Duvall had a double that drove in the other 3 runs… Freddie Freeman went 3-4 in the game.
  • Sunday #2: Braves 8 – Phillies 0… In the second game yesterday, the Braves bats continued to be hot as they pounded out 14 hits to the Phillies 4 in route to an 8-0 win… Ronald Acuna Jr. had a smoking hot bat as he went 4-4 with two of his 4 hits being homers… Freddie Freeman again went 3-4 in the game with a homer… The two teams will finish their 4-game series tonight with first pitch scheduled for 6:05 pm.
