Dukes & Bell
Tuesday, August 20th
In the Falcons report we revisited the third preseason game last night.


It was time for the “Strong Arm Story.”  The Braves start the final series of this home stand tonight against the Marlins as they look to improve on their 4-2 record during this stand, and particularly the bench stepping up in a time of need for Brian Snitker.  Carl talked about the Braves bench stepping with recent rash of injuries. “Rafael Ortega, I don’t know what he’s going to be but he’s already won a game for you, to me that’s a bonus.” Dukes said “Everybody they are inserting into the lineup is producing, as long as that continues we’re going to ok, we just need these guys who are being inserted randomly to do their job.” I think the biggest thing about this series is you’re better than the Marlins, just go beat them don’t mess around.”Mike said Snitker has had to deal with injuries for a second straight year. “Austin Riley will hit today and could take a rehab assignment by end of the week.” Bell said “With all the injuries they’ve had to deal with, Snitker has had to go through another year where all these injuries pile up.”
