The American League beat the National League 5-2 in the ’21 MLB All-Star Game on Tuesday night at Coors Field in Denver, CO.
The Atlanta Braves’ Freddie Freeman, a starter, and Ozzie Albies, a reserve, each had a hit in two at-bats apiece. The evening was highlighted by a pre-game tribute to the late Hank Aaron.
A couple of more days remain in the All-Star break. The Braves will kick off the second half of the season this Friday evening on their home field at Truist Park with an interleague match versus the Tampa Bay Rays. They’ll continue their efforts to reach the .500 mark, a goal that has yet to be attained in 2021. Their record currently stands at 44-45, following a loss to the Miami Marlins on the road this past Sunday afternoon. Ben Ingram, play-by-play announcer for the Atlanta Braves Radio Network, anticipates a very challenging start to the second half for the Braves.
Ingram encourages Braves fans to remain hopeful that good things are ahead for the team in the 73 games left in ’21.
First pitch of this Friday night’s game is set for 7:20 pm. Catch all the action of Atlanta Braves baseball this season on WLAQ 1410 AM and 96.9 FM.
