With one game to play, the Atlanta Braves suddenly find themselves tied with the St. Louis Cardinals for the National League wild card. Losing four games in a row at this stage of the season can do that to a club.
The Braves will likely take on the Philadelphia Phillies Wednesday in the season’s final game without the services of shortstop Alex Gonzalez. He “had to leave Tuesday night’s game with a strained right calf, the same injury which had kept him out of the final four games of the Braves last road trip,” according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez suggested that it was “more serious than just re-aggravating his sore calf,” the Journal-Constitution reports.
Gonzalez is hitting .241 with 15 homers. The team called up Tyler Pastornicky to back up Jack Wilson for Wednesday’s game, the paper reports.
