Today in the A: August 9th


Not a lot went on in Atlanta sports yesterday, however, the Braves put on a show.

Braves come out on top.

The Braves were in Washington as they faced on the Nationals. Braves were able to cruise by the Nationals after hitting three home-runs in 8-3 win. Mike Foltynewicz (9-7).

Ronald Acuña Jr. became the fifth player in MLB this season to hit a home run and rob a home run in the same game and he is the first to do both in the same inning according to ESPN Stats and Info.

Trae Young underrated

NBA 2K19 season is upon us and yesterday the first Atlanta Hawk rating for this year was released. Trae Young posted a screenshot of him in NBA 2k19, which also showed his rating, a 77. Young didn’t seem to happy about the rating.
