Shelby Miller gave up a hit, allowed one earned run, and completed 10 strikeouts into the eighth inning. David Aardsma (1-1) won the decision.

I wanted to post some stats today, as I've been looking at the Braves' offensive output and been surprised a bit. I think we all know the offense has been pretty bad almost all year but I wanted to post the individual leaders in a few categories.

HR:

1. Freeman - 14
2. Maybin - 10
3. K. Johnson - 9
4. Pierzynski - 7
5. J. Uribe - 7


Unless AJ hits a few dingers in the last 5 or 6 weeks, it is entirely possible that only 2 Braves end up with double-digit homeruns. I recognize that this was skewed a good bit by in-season trades (Kelly Johnson and Uribe being traded away, in particular).


RBI:

1. Maybin - 52
2. Peterson - 50
3. Freeman - 45
4. Markakis - 42
5. Pierzynski - 38


Unless Cameron can get and stay pretty hot over the next 5 or 6 weeks, it is entirely possible that no Braves player even ends up with 70 RBIs. It is interesting to see Jace 2nd on the team in RBIs with 50, as he has slumped some lately and some have questioned whether he is the future at 2nd base. Granted, I know his being 2nd on the team in RBIs is due to in-season trades and injuries.

SB:

1. Maybin - 18
2. Peterson - 10
3. Freeman - 3
4. E. Perez - 3
5. E. Young Jr - 3


Man, this was a tough one to look at. Basically, outside of Maybin and Jace, there doesn't appear to be any speed at all on this team. Bourn should help some in this category, though I don't expect him to be a 30 or 40 SB guy next year. People have focused on the need for a middle-of-the-order bat or two (and they aren't wrong in wanting more power and run producers) but the team could use some more speed as well.

In general, staying healthy and in the lineup almost every day (as well as not getting traded) have helped Cameron and Jace be near the top in quite a few offensive categories. I am actually amazed that the Braves have won as many games as they have with so little offensive output.

Default Game #119 (2015-08-18, 22:10): Padres 9, Braves 0

A bullpen away without leave and no runs produced resulted in the Braves' 9-0 loss against the Padres.

Credited with the loss, Matt Wisler (5-3) gave up six hits, allowed two earned runs, and completed two strikeouts through five innings. I think he did well without support from his team.

David Aarsdma and Ross Detwiler combined for five earned runs allowed in the sixth inning.

Former Brave Melvin Upton, Jr. batted in five runs, including two home runs.

I knew Melvin was going to come back and haunt us. I predicted it during the last series with the Padres, but it came true this time.

He did. He has his average above .240 now and his OPS up to .723. That is probably about as good as the Padres could have ever expected out of him. Of course, the 39K in only 124 at bats isn't good at all.
