Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports
Braves fall to Nationals on a rainy day in Washington.
Yesterday the Atlanta Braves sat through three hours of rain delays to eventually fall to the Nationals 6-2.
The Nationals got their offense going early with three runs in the first inning against Braves pitcher Mike Foltynewicz. Dansby Swanson was the only Braves player with an RBI as he had one in the second inning that scored Camargo and one in the fourth that scored Tyler Flowers.
Foltynewicz allowed nine hits and four runs over 5.2 innings. He struck out five and walked three while throwing 112 pitches.
The Braves however did tally 14 hits but had trouble leaving runners on base as they didnt capitalize on a lot of scoring opportunities.
The Braves will now head off to Miami to take on the Marlins in a two game series.
Atlanta Dream win their 7th straight as they knockdown WNBA leading Seattle Storm
The Dream have been the hottest team in the WNBA as of recently and yesterday they knocked off the best team in the league 87-74.
Atlanta played a more team minded game while Seattle ran most of their offense through Breanna Stewart who ended up scoring the game high in points for both teams with 31.
During this game The Dream hit some amazing passes after driving to the basket to a late cutter to the paint that provided some great highlights to watch. One stat that really surprised me was that the Storm only had 2 players that had 3 or more assists in this game whereas Atlanta had 5 players.
The Dream thanks to this franchise best winning streak are now atop the standings in the Eastern Conference and second in the entire league behind the Storm.
Tomorrow, the Dream will take on the Los Angles Sparks on the road as they look to extend their winning streak to eight games.
Come back tomorrow, and everyday for another “Today in the A”!
