Flowers fueled Atlanta’s four-run fourth with what also stands as one of the longest home runs of his career. His two-run shot deep into the left-field seats against Milone traveled a projected 448 feet — the second-longest he has hit since the start of the 2015 season. The veteran catcher hit a 451-foot shot against Chris Sale on July 8, 2016.

Charlie Culberson Slugs 3 Run Home Run | Atlanta Braves Highlights | August 8, 2018!

Charlie Culberson slugs a three-run home run over the left-field wall, giving the Braves a 3-1 lead in the top of the 2nd inning against the Washington Nationals on August 8, 2018!

According to Mark Bowman’s article:

Culberson got the Braves rolling with the three-run homer in the second inning against Milone. Culberson’s shot was his third home run within a span of six at-bats and the fifth in 31 at-bats against the Nationals this season.

 

The veteran utility man entered Tuesday with five homers through his first 196 at-bats of the season.  The eight homers he has tallied in 205 at-bats this season are two more than he had over 411 career at-bats entering the season.

 

“The guy is good,” Flowers said. “I guess he’s just never played a lot before. He’s another guy where the count, the score or the situation doesn’t seem to affect him. Those guys are hard to come by. He’s done a great job, and hopefully he’s going to play a little more with the way he’s been swinging it.”

  • Charlie Culberson is hitting .353 (12-for-34) with five home runs in 11 games against Washington this season.

About Bob Griggs

I became an Atlanta Braves Fan in the spring of 1974. I was in first grade and Hank Aaron was chasing Babe Ruth for the all-time home run king. Back in 1974 things were different than they are now. You could not just watch every game on television. Because of the event the networks would interrupt programming and show Hank Aaron batting until he broke the home run record. Since then I have always been an Atlanta Braves Fan.
