Braves hammer Rockies, again, unlike NL franchises going in opposite directions

Friday’s game at Truist Park presented a case of contrasts in the National League, and it showed on the end line — and everywhere in between — as Atlanta battled their way to an 8-1 win over Colorado.

The Braves looked like a franchise that has made five consecutive playoff appearances, with a World Series title in that stretch and the ability to match that championship feat this fall.

The Rockies, meanwhile, felt like a franchise with no identity and no obvious sense of immediate positive direction. And Colorado is a club with such a lack of legitimate throwing depth that the Rockies find it necessary to release a pitcher with an ERA north of 10 against perhaps the most stacked roster in the National League.

The result was a predictable battle of the best team in the NL (Atlanta has a 44-26 record on the senior circuit) against one of the worst in the NL as Colorado (29-43) continues to struggle in the western basement.

Right-hander Dinelson Lamet ran his ERA up to 11.57 as he was lambasted for 1,350 home runs and eight runs in four innings, and Colorado’s patchwork roster with just three Opening Day starters n failed to deliver a hit.
