Today in the A: July 18th

Recap of Yesterday’s Events

AL All-Stars 8, NL  All-Stars 6

The Atlanta Braves sent 4 players to the All-star game including 1B Freddie Freeman, 2B Ozzie Albies, OF Nick Markakis, and P Mike Foltynewicz. Unfortunately, only Nick Markakis and Mike Foltynewics will appear on the stat sheet as Ozzie and Freddie combined for 0 for 3 at-bats.

Nick Markakis was walked once in 2 at-bats. Folty managed to only walk a batter once and get a strikeout in 1 inning of play. Overall, it is always nice to see the Braves get the recognition they deserve regardless of how the players play in the actual all-star game. Next year lets try to get more of our guys in the all-star game!

Atlanta Dream 86, Connecticut Sun 83

The Atlanta Dream played in a nailbiter versus the Connecticut Sun which came down to the last possession. Tiffany Henry stole the ball and hit a shot from half-court to win the game for the Atlanta Dream.

With this win, the Dream are on a 5 game winning streak. Angel McCoughtry finished the game with 24 points, 6 rebounds, 4 assists off the bench. Tiffany Henry finished the game with 18 points and 8 rebounds

They will be looking to make that 6 in a row when they take on the New York Liberty Thursday at 7 PM. Make sure you support our fabulous ladies as they are showing you why they need to be taken seriously.
