Only two strokes were allowed, both of them singles.
Let’s also say Marcel Ozona For his eighth run twice-by-8 shot to give the Braves some breathing room …

There, we got all the credit for the Braves for sweeping them out of the way.
Now, on the reds. The 22-game goalless streak in the qualifiers is a major league record for post-season start. The Reds’ attack was 8 to 73 (. 110) in the two series matches. Their five walk and batsman ran them to 0.177 on a percentage basis. Slowness was. 181. Obviously, she’s just a two-game model, and if this is just the first two games of the regular season, we can describe it as a slow start.
