The Atlanta Braves were swinging the big bats in the fourth inning of Tuesday’s game against the Pittsburgh Pirates, hitting four home runs.
Josh Donaldson, who is appealing a one-game suspension, hit the first. He was followed immediately by Nick Markakis. After an out, Brian McCann hit the third of the inning. Ozzie Albies finished the party off with the fourth.
Even with MLB’s power numbers going crazy, four in one inning is pretty notable. We certainly never would have guessed that the Braves would hit four in one inning and one wouldn’t be from Austin Riley.
That’s pretty much a textbook lesson on how to turn a two-run deficit into a two-run lead.
