The Braves got back in the win column Sunday as R.A. Dickey gave Atlanta another strong outing on the mound and Brandon Philips continued to play at high levels, not only at the plate but at his new position of third base.
Hugh said: “The guy yesterday was R.A. Dickey, he gave them seven strong innings on the mound.”
The Falcons were back at practice Sunday as it was one of the hottest practices they have had. Running back Devonta Freeman had to leave due to some issues with the heat.
Hugh said: “The heat will sneak up on you, so you have to say hydrated and eat right to help fight the heat, and the Falcons do a pretty good job with their players on this.”
