The Braves fell 13-1 against the Cardinals Wednesday night in the final game of the NLDS at SunTrust Park.

Social media reaction to Atlanta Braves loss was swift and brutal

Which was worse: the Falcons blowing a 25 point lead in the Super Bowl or the first inning of the Braves’ NLDS game Wednesday night?

It doesn’t matter to Atlanta sports fans. They were both awful. 

“That wasn’t quite the end — the Cardinals would win 13-1 and will play for the National League pennant — but, for us scarred Atlantans, it was way too much,” the AJC’s Mark Bradley wrote. “There hadn’t been a dime’s worth of difference between these teams over four games, all of them pulsating, and now we’ll recall the 2019 National League Division Series only for its gruesome end.”

» Cardinals manager has choice words following series-clinching win
