Just Another Road Trip
June Swoon ends with a fitting loss on the road.
Braves 4, Nationals 1: They had their chances, just like every other game on this latest (1-5) nightmare road trip. Bases loaded in the 5th, bases loaded in the 6th, and just one run to show for it.
Time for some home cooking: next 10 at home before the All-Star Break.
