A Series Matter’ Atlanta’s NL-best offense comes to Citi Field for three games

Braves manager Brian Snitker removed Swanson as a precaution. Paul Sewald relieved him in the fifth.

After being drafted and signed by the Braves in the first round of the 2015 MLB Draft (28th overall), he reported to the GCL Braves, where he posted a 1.80 ERA in ten innings pitched. He has started his career hot out of the gate with four doubles and a home run in just 19 at bats along with three singles. He hasn't allowed a run in his past 18 1/3 innings. Jason Vargas will start the finale and is 0-1 with a 22.09 ERA and 5 strikeouts this season. Add in the fact that the Braves have had a lot of success at Citi Field, and I think you have to take a serious look at the plus money here. He retired the final 14 batters he faced following a one-out walk to Asdrubal Cabrera in the third inning. Newcomb lined a double off the left field wall a pitch prior to Inciarte's shot to right.

Frazier said "everybody" included hitters around the league, not just in NY.

First baseman Freddie Freeman and second baseman Ozzie Albies have led Atlanta's hitters. Cespedes was stretching after the play when he noticed one of his necklaces was broken, pulled it off his neck and furiously threw it to the ground.

The Mets telecast showed what appeared to be diamonds glistening in the dirt near the bag.

In the review I did on top right-handed pitching prospects in the game, I mentioned that Soroka works with two distinct fastballs, a change, and then he has utilized a soft and a hard curve over the previous year, with the latter looking similar to a slider, so many reports consider it such. Carle will throw a bullpen Thursday and is day to day. Cueto's ERA, 0.84, leads the majors. Jason Vargas hopes to be the stabilizer in the rotation and hopefully his frightful start in San Diego was just a hiccup in Vargas returning to form.

Gary Sanchez broke a scoreless tie by slamming a three-run homer off Ken Giles in the ninth to send the Yankees to their 10th win in 11 games, 4-0 over the Astros.
