Another day. Another game.
Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez was not worried about the psyche of his team one day after being no-hit by the Phillies. The Braves failed to manage a hit against four Phillies pitchers in the 11th combined no-hitter in major league history.
“It’s one of those things,” Gonzalez said Tuesday, a day after the 7-0 loss. “It was a rare feat we saw (Monday). There have been 23 perfect games and only 11 combined no-hitters. You saw something that hasn’t been done a lot.”
The Braves entered Tuesday’s game against the Phillies having scored just one run in the past three games – that on an Evan Gattis home run Sunday. The Braves have stuggled offensively the past three games after scoring a combined 14 runs in the previous three games, all wins.
“I’m not going to say we’ve hit rock bottom. You don’t say anything. You just go. It happens.”
