Miller works around homer in latest sharp start

Sun, 26 Apr 2015 00:17:03 EDT

When the Braves acquired Shelby Miller in exchange for Jason Heyward in November, they described him as a potential top-of-the-rotation starter. Based on what has been provided through this season's first three weeks, they could justifiably remove "potential" from that description.

Braves refuse to 'mail it in' amid hitting woes

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 23:45:02 EDT

Like the four straight losses that preceded Saturday night's 5-2 win over the Phillies did not guarantee impending doom, one victory does not completely erase the concerns the Braves have created over the past 10 days.

Braves end scoreless streak, rally past Phillies

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 23:15:29 EDT

The Braves snapped a 20-inning scoreless drought and ruined David Buchanan's strong start by producing a decisive three-run seventh inning in Saturday night's 5-2 win over the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park.

Cahill eyes first quality start in finale with Phillies

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 20:53:00 EDT

Trevor Cahill hasn't completed five innings in eight of 19 starts since the start of the 2014 season, and that includes his first two outings with the Braves. Cahill will take the mound for Atlanta on Sunday in the series finale against the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park.

Wood, Braves pitching staff very impressive

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 00:27:54 EDT

Though Jim Johnson's recent frustrations were enhanced during Friday night's 1-0 loss to the Phillies at Citizens Bank Park, the recently-maligned Braves bullpen had no reason to be ashamed of the effort it provided in this latest setback.

Freeman, Braves know their defense must improve

Sat, 25 Apr 2015 00:12:42 EDT

Freddie Freeman could not hide his frustration after the Braves suffered their fourth consecutive loss with a tough offensive and defensive performance at Citizens Bank Park on Friday night. His game-ending error had provided the Phillies a 1-0 victory. But his dismay extended beyond what he had not done with his glove.

Wood pitches well, but errors cost Braves

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 23:09:40 EDT

Walks come around to bite Braves as Mets roll on

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 20:36:25 EDT

Braves' run on review of collision ruling perplexes Mets

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 20:02:51 EDT

The Braves were credited with a run in the second inning Thursday when umpires ruled that Mets catcher Anthony Recker did not provide a clear lane for A.J. Pierzynski to score.

Hot-hitting Pierzynski earning time over Bethancourt

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 19:55:06 EDT

Though the Braves entered this season with the expectation that Christian Bethancourt would serve as their primary catcher, manager Fredi Gonzalez has opted to frequently put the hot-hitting A.J. Pierzynski behind the plate over the past week.

Teheran unable to find grip in chilly conditions

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 18:51:19 EDT

Instead of delivering a lengthy start to save the Braves' recently exposed bullpen, Julio Teheran allowed himself to be affected by the chilly elements Thursday afternoon at Citi Field.

Stults' solid outing not enough to cool off Mets

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 01:57:00 EDT

The Mets extended their impressive winning streak to 10 straight games on Wednesday night, twice coming from behind to take a 3-2 victory. It also dropped the Braves to their seventh loss in their last 10 games at Citi Field, despite a strong start from left-hander Eric Stults, who held the Mets to one run in six innings.

Braves' loss takes shine off Stults' stellar start

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 01:09:19 EDT

Eric Stults provided the Braves exactly what they needed on Wednesday night at Citi Field. But after at least halting concerns about the back end of Atlanta's rotation, the veteran left-hander watched a suddenly leaky bullpen allow the red-hot Mets to claim a 3-2 victory at Citi Field.

Johnson points to unlucky results in bullpen's struggles

Thu, 23 Apr 2015 01:03:17 EDT

As the Braves have struggled to extend their early-season success over the past week, their inexperienced bullpen has proven to be a liability. But the most concerning aspect for the Braves stems from the recent struggles endured by Jim Johnson.

Feigl's chance to join 'pen dashed by Tommy John surgery

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 19:21:10 EDT

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 13:00:00 EDT

Hank Aaron currently leads the Greatest Living Player category and ranks ahead of all of the Braves greats who have drawn votes through the first two weeks of balloting for Major League Baseball's Franchise Four campaign.

Cahill unravels in the fifth as the Braves fall to Mets

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 01:07:15 EDT

Curtis Granderson drove in four runs and Jon Niese carried a shutout bid into the seventh inning as the Mets extended their winning streak to nine games with Tuesday night's 7-1 win over the Braves at Citi Field.

Gosselin laments error that allowed four-run fifth inning

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 00:46:22 EDT

Despite the fact that they have mixed and matched their lineup at various positions through the season's first two weeks, the Braves have proven to be one of the game's best defensive clubs. But manager Fredi Gonzalez's decision to start Phil Gosselin at second base on Tuesday night proved costly as the utility infielder committed an error that helped the Mets roll toward a 7-1 win.

Cahill encouraged by solid first four innings vs. Mets

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 00:26:30 EDT

Considering how ineffective he was all of last year and during his only previous start this season, there was actually reason to wonder if Trevor Cahill should have been encouraged by the four-plus innings he completed for the Braves during Tuesday night's 7-1 loss to the Mets at Citi Field.

Mets-Braves rivalry rediscovering cachet

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 23:45:25 EDT

The Braves are here. Has anyone noticed? And among those who are aware of their presence, are there some who are passionate -- one way of the other -- about the "A" team? Does anyone here hate them, fear them, like them, root for or against them? Does anyone here in the Big City or in the big Citi give a wit that the second-place team in the National League East is in town for three nights to engage the first-place New York Mets?

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 20:13:50 EDT

Less than 10 minutes after the Braves completed Sunday's series-clinching victory over the Blue Jays in Toronto, rookie left-handed reliever Andrew McKirahan sobered the celebratory mood by informing his teammates and manager Fredi Gonzalez that he tested positive for a performance-enhancing drug and would consequently draw a 80-game suspension from Major League Baseball.

Reunion Weekend - Friday & Saturday - November 6 & 7, 2009 - Friday, September 18, 2009

GOLF-DINNER / PROGRAM LEGENDS-----BASEBALL GAME

Make your plans now to attend the Auburn Baseball Lettermen and Associates Club annual get together.  The last three have been super fellowship and fun. This year the Club salutes the 1963 SEC Championship Team along with the Auburn All-Americans of the 1960's decade.

The golf on Friday will be a shotgun start and will have similar playing rules to last year. Coach Pawlowski and members of his staff will participate in some fashion along with the 2010 senior / junior baseball players by hitting some tee shots and putt on designated holes. This will be a super time to meet the coaches individually including David Mines, Associate AD and new coach Link Jarrett, a Florida State baseball alumnus, who came to Auburn from a successful program at East Carolina. Also, it will be good time to tell the seniors / juniors how much we support them and their efforts in Auburn baseball program.

Saturday morning brings the Reunion Baseball Game. Details are enumerated on the attached Reunion game registration form. We have had some really good games in the past with young and old former players participating and we see no reason to expect anything less this year. Call your teammates and prod them to plan to attend and join in the fun. Commissioner Buz Walsh promises an even more competitive and better game this year with more participants including the older guys playing the early innings and the young studs playing the late innings. Since we are having our activities later this year, we anticipate more of our Major and Minor League players being available to attend all of our functions this year.

Since the year’s events are taking place on a football weekend, we have not attempted to make provisions for rooms to be set aside for participants needing accommodations. Also, you may want to allow extra time for travel to Auburn and getting around campus for the Club’s functions. I have included lodging lists for your consideration. The Athletic Department will attempt to provide assigned parking and transportation to Plainsman Park for the Reunion Game participants on Saturday. Particulars will be forthcoming at a time closer to that week end and you will be notified.
