Stumblin’ Bumblin’ Braves

September 20, 2011

Atlanta’s fantastic Rookie Closer, Craig Kimbrel, has begun to falter, blowing two saves in his last four changes. His second Home Run allowed in as many days was especial devastating, as the Marlins’ Omar Infante’s two Run blast on Florida’s last strike last evening propelled the Fish to a walk off 6-5 victory and robbed the Braves of a much-needed win. Since August 23rd the Braves have gone 9-15. Meanwhile, the Cardinals have won 17 of 24 games and cut Atlanta’s 10.5 game Wild Card lead to two and a half. Over this stretch, Atlanta has been outscored 105 to 81.
Check out how Atlanta’s top batters have performed since August 23rd.

Hits (Blue), At-Bats (Orange) & RBIs (Green)

With the red-hot Cardinals and defending World Series Champions, San Francisco Giants chomping at their tail and eight tough games left against the Marlins, Nationals and Phillies, can the Braves maintain their lead and avoid a collapse of epic proportions?
