Braves Nightmare in Coors Field, where All-Star Game was Moved

 This would have been a painful simulated series for a Braves fan to play.

The games were played in Colorado, the place the All-Star game was moved in real baseball due to the new election bill passed in Georgia.

The game was the first in which we did not use the card for clean-up hitter Marcell Ozuna, as we don't use players in 60-day DL and-or who appear they may not play the rest of the season, and Ozuna is facing serious domestic violence charges.

Despite the Rockies having long ago been eliminated, they destroyed the Braves 5 games to one. The Braves OPS was an impressive 0.811, but the Rockies was 1.255 due to 28 of 77 hitting with 11 homeruns in the two games. The 3-4-5 hitters each had 5 hits in the two games with a combined six homers I the two games.

The series started with ace Morton lasting only 2 innings while giving up 5 runs, and ended with closer Jackson giving up 3 runs in the bottom of the 9th to blow a 7-4 lead, then Cron leading off the bottom of the 10th with a walk off homer.

The Braves dropped to 32-34, and only 3-9 against relegated teams.
