A seven game losing streak for the Braves ended in dramatic fashion Sunday evening with Jace Peterson’s tenth inning walk-off homer giving them a 7-6 win over the Nationals. The game included an hour-long rain delay in the eighth inning. Now the Braves head out west for a road trip that starts tonight in Arizona with Mike Foltynewicz getting the start.
Game week continues for the Falcons who resumed their practice schedule Sunday ahead of Thursday’s preseason game with the Dolphins. Hugh said “You can always improve on your tackling, and the type of defense they play you need to make sound tackles.” The team cut kicker Nick Rose over the weekend and signed kicker Shayne Graham to replace him.
