Is there still a hangover from the champagne party held after the district championship was confirmed? The Atlanta Braves collapsed in the last four games, allowing 43 runs in 33 innings.
Atlanta won the away game against the Philadelphia Phillies on the 15th (Korean time), confirming their victory in the National League East Division for the sixth consecutive year.
However, Atlanta suffered four consecutive losses in the next four games, which was like a lie. First, Atlanta lost all three consecutive away games to the Miami Marlins held from the 16th to the 18th.
The reason for the loss was the collapse of the mound. Atlanta gave up a whopping 36 runs in the three-game series. They gave up an average of 12 points per game. In the game on the 18th, they lost 2-16 after giving up as many as 16 points.메이저놀이터
In particular, Atlanta suffered the humiliation of Jazz Chisholm Jr., who hit a grand slam in two consecutive games on the 17th and 18th.
Also, Atlanta lost 1-7 in the game against Philadelphia on the 19th when they returned to their home stadium. In this game, as many as five home runs were allowed.
Of course, Atlanta still maintains its leading position in the major league. However, the gap that was once more than five games has narrowed significantly.
Atlanta recorded 96 wins, 54 losses, and a winning percentage of 0.640 until this day. The gap with the Baltimore Orioles, second place in the major leagues, is two games.
Now, Atlanta will try to break their 4-game losing streak by appointing Spencer Strider as their starting pitcher on the 20th. Attention is being paid to whether Atlanta, which has fallen into a sudden slump, will overcome it.
