Home Run Derby
By: Locke Hoover
The Atlanta Braves are off to a great start to the season and are sitting in first place with a record of 7-1 in the National League East. The Braves offense has be fun to watch in the early season but I could see one little problem with it as the season progresses. The Braves offenses hit a lot of homeruns and right now is third in the National league with 13 but they also strikes out a lot as they have the second most strike outs in the National league. While it is fun to watch you hate for your offense to rely on the homerun ball to score runs. As the season progresses you hope to see the Braves be able to do the little things to win ball games. You hope the offense can get that runner over from second to third with less than two outs and then the next batter make contact and get the runner in. I hope the Braves will be able to play ABC baseball and do those things offensively that may not show up in the box score to win baseball games.
