Listen: Swanson, Freeman go back-to-back as Braves beat Giants 9-2
"Asking, I'm going to take you to the next couple hours talking. Giants baseball talking about this game tonight in which the giants lost nine two two nine run seven hit Ciro runs. Sarah errors for the Atlanta Braves too runs six hits one era for the giants Atlanta, Braves winning their twenty seventh game while the giants lost their twenty seven game tough night. Some margin came out pitch beautifully in the first inning. And mostly all his woes in the last couple of starts was in the first inning. You have a hit, but he thought he threw the ball real well and then the second thing that just didn't start off. Right. He went. See when three oh Austin Riley, and then he got a walk from him. He battled back mechanically strikes out and then the ball back to him in which the shift was on longoria was playing more shortstop and no one covers second base. And of course, he threw it, and no one was there. So it kind of screwed up that whole inning and ended up Joyce getting a base hit. And then the pitcher freed ended up getting a ground ball another run. But then it really bottomed out. He struck out Kuna and the pitch was a split finger kind of touched the front of the plate bounce Stover Posey for awhile pitch. And then a home run ball, Swanson and Freeman and literally that was the whole game. And it really came down to a plane which they had to shift on most of the time. Pitchers will look back and know what guys covering the bag and I just don't remember him doing it. Usually see the pitcher point to the guy that's covering then see that. And I don't know. That was a screw up or the shift kinda turned on him after he went to the stretch, but that cost them and mental mistake again. And the giants couldn't catch up, of course. Holland comes in and seventh inning he bottomed out. But again another mental mistake, there Crawford could've turned a double play Salona was lake covering a bag and it only got one out. And of course another home run by a Riley at really opened a game up and, and that pretty much cost them the game with nine runs. So tough game a tough night. But another outstanding pitcher in this young Braves bulbous starting rotation max freed and the bullpen was lights out after that was sore sec Winkler and Tomlin. And they just couldn't catch up too much of a hole in what the giants bats as they are right now. Of free just dynamic game. A young left handed pitcher, threw the ball real. Well, six innings. Four hits only gave up two earned runs. Two walks five ks but going into the last couple of starts that he threw threw very well against Milwaukee six innings to hits northern runs and got the win on that game. And then against Arizona, he went five innings nine hits, three earned runs got the win, and that, so that's three win straight for max free. And that was his seventh win on the year. So they land of race command, take the two out of three and one more game tomorrow, Madison. Bumgarner taken the hill at twelve forty five start Kevin gauze men against him. And Madison's been throwing the ball extremely well, but a lot of powerful right hand hitters in this lineup. The Braves have and just a tough night at the ballpark after the second inning. When you look at some Marga what he did after that second. Any really calm down just through. The ball extremely well after that. He went six innings only giving up for hits two of them were home runs all runs were unearned as the Arabic cost that and it could have been an easy, an ending, right there. He's the kind of double play ball and who knows what would have happened these things happen in a game. And it happened so quickly. And the next thing back to back home runs. And you saw his eyes look out to center field, and he was confused. He he was upset, but coming back after that second and third inning at a nice clean inning for thinning and he pitched well after that, but the damage was done. And when you fall behind like that it's tough to tough to catch up and freed or is this one of the top pitchers? We saw sirocco throw on Monday and these two guys are lights out young talent on the Braves, and you're seeing this come to fashion, as we see the Braves and the Braves are, are definitely battling every day. And the key is, is. The C you know how much they can do damage when they're in the east chasing Philadelphia right now. They're only game and a half out something to look at as the Atlanta Braves of filter through San Francisco right now. And, and watch them. See if they have enough strength to"
