Braves Rock Twins But Hosts Still Make History, Brown Reportedly Struck By Frostbite, Durant Refuses To Blame Warriors For Injury

Grace Higgins | August 8th, 2019

After losing the first game of a three-game series on Monday to the Minnesota Twins, the Atlanta Braves promptly proceeded to put up 23 runs over the next two games to take the series. Tuesday night saw the top end of the order dominate, with Ronald Acuna, Jr, Ozzie Albies, and Freddie Freeman leading the way in a 12-7 win. It was much of the same on Wednesday afternoon as the series wrapped up between the NL East and AL Central leaders. The Braves would win this one 11-7, once again utilizing their first three hitters to full effect. Acuna had a home run, Freeman had another as he increased his already massively impressive RBI total, and Albies ended up smacking two over the fence for a second consecutive four-hit game. But the Twins didn’t leave totally unrewarded. For the second time in the span of three weeks, they were able to turn a triple play, doing so with the same pitcher- Martin Perez- on the mound as well. It continues some strange and quirky triple play history for them, as they turned two in one game back in 1990. The Twins are now just 2.5 games ahead of the Indians in the division, while the Braves have a health six-game edge over the Nationals in theirs.

Seeing a man’s feet is never that pleasant a sight, but seeing the ones that Antonio Brown, now of the Oakland Raiders, displayed last week was not only unsettling but also mysterious. It was said that he was missing time on the practice field, annoyingly enough to coach Jon Gruden, because of them, but no reason was given. We finally have answers, though, and it all has to do with the overuse of cryotherapy coupled with Brown’s lack of using adequate foot protection. Due to that combination, Brown ended up with frostbite, and that is now what has been causing him to miss time. It’s kind of understandable now why Gruden would be upset, seeing as how this could have, should have been, theoretically avoided.

Kevin Durant’s season- and tenure with the Golden State Warriors- came to an end in Game 5 of the NBA Finals. Yet it hasn’t caused one of the top players in the NBA to blame his former team for the injury to his Achilles that occurred. He made that abundantly clear in his first interview, with Yahoo Sports, since his injury happened that fateful night in Toronto. Many believed he decided to pack up and head to Brooklyn due to that, but this pretty much dispels that idea right away. He will miss all of the coming season for the Nets, but will be hoping to come back with a vengeance in 2020/21.
