Atlanta completes fearsome batting lineup with ‘starters’ OPS over .700′

The Atlanta Braves, whose starting rotation was decimated by the departure of the one-two punch and the struggles of Moustache Young Gun, are holding onto the lead thanks to the strength of their bats.

Atlanta played a home game against the Colorado Rockies at Truist Park in Atlanta, Georgia, on the 19th (KST).

The A’s fell behind 0-5 after a Charlie Morton error in the first inning, but rallied to score 14 runs in the second through eighth innings to win 14-6.토토사이트

Atlanta has since won six in a row, improving to 46-26 and a .639 winning percentage in the National League East. That’s the best winning percentage in the National League.

In particular, the Atlanta offense has scored 56 runs in six games dating back to the first game of a doubleheader against the Detroit Tigers on April 15. That’s 9.3 runs per game.

What’s even more impressive is that all nine starters have an OPS over .700. The lowest, Michael Harris II, has a .708 OPS. He boosted his numbers with five hits on the day.

This means that runs can come from anywhere. Aji Albies, Marcell Osuna, and Eddie Rosario are starting to hit well, making for a scary batting lineup.

Of course, teams that rely on their bats rarely end up doing well. Atlanta used this batting explosion to buy time until Max Freed and Kyle Wright returned.

If Fried and Wright don’t return to form, Atlanta will look to add starting pitching in the trade market.

It will be interesting to see what the future holds for Atlanta as they look to win their fifth World Series title in two years and first since the 2021 season.
