What’s been a tough road trip for the Braves didn’t get better Thursday night in an 8-2 loss at Pittsburgh. The biggest story from the game seemed to happen before it with Erick Aybar missing the game after getting a chicken bone stuck in his throat Hugh told us “They had to sedate him to get the bone out which is why he missed the game.” Mike Foltynewicz had a brutal night, he was pulled after giving up five runs in three innings. Jeff Francoeur hit a home run and Tyler Flowers had an RBI. The Braves are now 2 and 5 on the road trip with Matt Wisler on the mound tonight in Philadelphia.
The Cleveland Cavaliers now have ten straight wins to open the playoffs after getting by the Raptors 108-89 Thursday in Game Two of the East Finals. LeBron James had a triple double. Game three is tomorrow night as the series moves to Toronto.
