Not only the the Braves lose tonight 10-5 to the Cubs, but Tom Glavine is going back to the DL:
CHICAGO — Tom Glavine made his first career visit to the disabled list earlier this season. The Braves’ veteran southpaw is headed back to the DL with an injured left elbow.
Glavine was removed after three ineffective innings against the Cubs on Tuesday night. The Braves later announced that he has a strained left elbow.
During Tuesday’s start, Glavine allowed four earned runs and six hits. The 42-year-old hurler needed 30 pitches to escape a two-run second inning and another 25 pitches to end a two-run third inning.
This was Glavine’s first appearance at Wrigley Field mound since using it to gain his 300th career victory on Aug. 5 of last year.
That’s gotta stab the hearts of Braves fans. Smoltz last week, Glavine this week. Everyone knew Atlanta would be hit or miss this season. The roster has a lot of risk built into it. Unfortunately, it may not pay off for Cox and crew.
