Atlanta Braves

You baseball fans out there probably know about how hot of a start the Atlanta Braves are off to. They are 13-2 and have the best record in all of major league baseball. Our pitchers are pitching well and several players throughout the lineup are on fire! Justin Upton has 9 home runs through 15 games and leading by 2 home runs. Evan Gattis is only playing because our starting catcher is injured and is 6th in the mlb in home runs. Jason Heyward is my favorite player on the braves, but he has gotten off to a slow start. His current average is a low .115, the lowest on our roster. The braves are my favorite team and I always enjoy watching them play. However, this season I’m enjoying them more than ever!
Our pitching staff has been pretty dominating as well. Paul Maholm is 3-0 and hasn’t gave up a single run all season! Now that’s impressive. Tim Hudson may be getting up there in age but his stats beg to differ. He is 2-0 with an ERA (Earned Run Average) under 3, which is very impressive. Kris Medlen is probably my favorite pitcher on the team. He is pitching well this season along with Mike minor and Julio Teheran. Our bullpen has been good this year as well.
All of the players I have named are very big pieces to the success of the braves so far this season. It has been a team effort, but it is early in the season. I hope we can play this good all season, but I know it would be tough and exhausting. I hope we play this well come October when the postseason begins, and go on to win the world series! Go Braves!
