Colby Wilson’s Braves Report: Out of the Desert

 

Atlanta BravesClarksville, TN – It was hard not to feel as though Christmas had come early when news of the Shelby Miller deal broke.

A Dansby Swanson? All for me? And an Aaron Blair for my pitching collection? And wow… an Ender Inciarte! I’ve never had one of those! Oh here, I got you a Shelby Miller… slightly used. Hmm, I feel kinda bad about that now. Want a gift card?

If I knew any Diamonbacks fans, I probably would’ve felt bad for them. They’ve now mortgaged three first-round picks—including Swanson, the No. 1 overall in 2015—and a legitimately exciting defensive outfielder for Shelby Miller, a marginal pitching prospect and the right not to pay Bronson Arroyo any more money. The franchise is going for it, which is an exciting phrase to hear—it was also the same phrase Braves fans heard when Atlanta acquired the Upton’s, and that didn’t turn out all that well.

Nashville Sounds rally comes up short in 5-4 loss at Reno Aces

 

Brent Morel Stays Hot With Another Multi-Hit Game

Nashville SoundsReno, NV – For the first time since 2013, the Nashville Sounds were defeated by the Reno Aces, falling, 5-4 at Aces Ballpark.

Reno put Nashville starter Zach Neal in a precarious position to start the first inning, placing runners on the corners with no outs for the dangerous Nick Evans. Neal traded the run for a double play, and the Sounds went to the second in a 1-0 hole.

After posting 21 hits the night before, the Sounds picked right up where they left off in the second. Rangel Ravelo singled to lead off the frame and Nate Freiman walked.

Nashville Sounds lose 5-4 to Reno Aces Monday night.
