With the focus on Giancarlo Stanton’s quest for 60 home runs on Saturday night, the supporting cast stole the spotlight in the Marlins’ 10-2 win over the Braves at Marlins Park.
Though R.A. Dickey’s season is complete and he has not decided whether he will extend his career next year, the veteran knuckleballer strolled to right field at Marlins Park on Friday afternoon and took advantage of another opportunity to play catch with his Braves teammates.
One swing. That’s all it will take for Giancarlo Stanton to become the sixth member of baseball’s elite 60-home run club, along with Babe Ruth, Roger Maris, Barry Bonds, Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa. Stanton carries his 59 homers into what could be a historic Saturday night at Marlins Park, as the Marlins and Braves […]
The quest for 60 home runs remains on hold for Giancarlo Stanton, but the slugger did provide an RBI single in a four-run seventh Friday night at Marlins Park. The big hit in the inning was Justin Bour’s two-out, two-run single off lefty Sam Freeman that rallied the Marlins to a 6-5 victory over the […]

After playing nine of their past 12 games against teams fighting for a postseason spot, the Marlins come home to finish their season with a four-game set against the Braves to determine second place in the National League East.

Although so many of the Mets’ disappointments this summer revolved around injuries, a few of their players simply underachieved. One of those, Robert Gsellman, made sure to finish his rookie season in top form Wednesday, delivering six strong innings in a 7-1 win over the Braves at Citi Field.
As the Braves graduated the bulk of their young starting pitching to the Majors this season, it would be fair to say Sean Newcomb led that trend. Newcomb ended his rookie season almost the same way he started it, against the Mets, but with different results, as the left-hander took the loss in the Braves’ […]
For the third time in this four-game series, the Braves will send one of their four rookies currently in the rotation to the mound. This time, Sean Newcomb will toe the rubber, while Robert Gsellman will start for the Mets in the final matchup of the season between the National League East rivals.
