Bases loaded. No outs. Top 9. Braves clinging to a 4-3 lead. And the Marlins go and do something like this.
American hero Charlie Culberson picked up the ball and ruthlessly gunned down some poor sap the Marlins had running from third base. Night night, Braves win again.
I love you, Charlie. This Braves teams continues to be one of the most exciting teams in baseball. And we’re just going to ignore Luke Jackson’s performance in the 9th today and celebrate second Dansby making that incredible play.
The Braves now enter the All-Star break at 54-37, easily the best team in the NL East.
And Dale Murphy should be in the Hall of Fame.
