Following Thursday’s win over the Miami Marlins, the Atlanta Braves optioned left-hander Tucker Davidson back to the alternate training site. Davidson was called up on Wednesday when Max Fried was placed on the injured list to give the team another multi-inning relief option out of the bullpen. Davidson didn’t get into a game during this stint with the major league club.
The Braves were in danger of being swept by the Marlins in a four-game series for the first time in franchise history. Then they rediscovered the late-inning magic that’s saved them so many times before. After blowing a ninth-inning lead, the Braves rallied against Dylan Floro in the bottom of the inning, with Dansby Swanson’s walk-off single pushing them past the Marlins 7-6 on Thursday afternoon at Truist Park.
It was great,” Roberts said. Any time you can get the players and staff, front office and ownership, with a central thought and moment of recognition for Jackie Robinson Day, I thought it was special. It’s something the Dodgers plan on doing every year as far as gathering around Jackie to pay our respects and love of Jackie.
